Abstract
What if someone walked into surgery and awoke quadriplegic never having been warned of this risk? What if they not only survived but also endured the horrors of this disability with hope and humor? What if they returned to school, earned a Master’s degree in theater and then a law degree and got married? What if they wrote a funny and tearful book about it and created a new business model to market the story? Brian Shaughnessy did. This is an excerpt from his 2005 memoir.
