Publisher's Summary

After 30 years of a healthy, rewarding, and exciting life, I wake up in a hospital bed unable to move. The neurosurgeon leans down and breaks the news: You won't regain any function in your body and you will never walk again. My medical insurance sends me home, discontinues my care, and tells me to "adapt to my new life".
Little Big Steps is the story of the pivotal moments, interactions, and breakthroughs following the injury that turned my life upside down. Each chapter explores the experiences, challenges, and discoveries that have inspired me to work towards those accomplishments I was told were impossible.
There are moments of immense frustration and grief, and moments of surreal hilariousness and unparalleled joy as I remain on the path to get back on my feet. The story culminates with proof that motivation, determination, and unwavering commitment can lead to incredible achievements.

A Great Story of Overcoming Challenges in Life

Would you listen to Little Big Steps again? Why?

I cried. I laughed. And I cried again, but tears of joy. This story is one of perseverance in the face of enormous adversity. While this story focuses on Arash's difficulties living a life with a body he doesn't recognize as his own, the lessons are tangible for everyone. While we hope to never need the mental fortitude shown by Arash, we all have challenges we must overcome during our lifetimes. The power of this narrative is that those challenges can be overcome by focusing on small progress and that, by doing so, the larger goal can be accomplished.

What did you like best about this story?

I absolutely enjoyed the detail of Arash's proposal to his girlfriend.

Which character – as performed by Arash Bayatmakou – was your favorite?

Arash, of course

A story worth reading

I was engaged from the start. A life changing injury can happen to anyone. Hearing how Arash navigated the medical care system, the importance of the words people use, and the experience of insensitive caregivers, is so important for all to hear. I was so moved by his honesty and persistence, and by the role his parents and friends played in his healing journey from a tragic accident.He is an inspiration to anyone who finds themselves unable to live their life as they once had. It’s a book for people of all ages, and hopefully medical professionals will learn from it as well.
