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.

I discovered Arash'es blog this past summer when researching spinal cord injury, as my boyfriend suffered the same. almost exactly 5 years after Arash'es accident. after reading his entire blog, I was looking forward to the day the book was published. Arash is my inspiration and hope that one day the guy I love will be able to stand on his two legs. I know I will read the book again and again and listen to audible version many times. Arash'es amazing story touched me on many levels. it made me understand spinal cord injury deeper and definitely put everything we struggle with in a different perspective.

The power of imagination and dedication

The story of Arash can teach every reader something meaningful about love, loss, courage, care, and community. The story is told from a life-changing experience. The author teaches us to think about the interconnectedness of our lives by asking not only to read about his life in a pitiless, helpful and unique way but also to recognize the power of imagination, dedication, and perseverance in the living.
