The disability community uses the phrase 'Nothing about us without us' to say that in order to understand disability, you need to see and hear the experience through the life of a person with a disability. Blake's book will teach you about living fully and proudly with cerebral palsy. But Blake's writing is truly universal. His book teaches us about persistence, innovation, overcoming adversity and what it looks like to pursue your wildest dreams.

Breaking Chains is an amazingly written book about reaching your fullest potential. Many of us are like oak trees in a flower pot and we are root bound by our own inhibitions. However, Blake has laid out a framework on how to overcome life's trials and tribulations to be the best you can be. This book is relevant to everyone!
