Seven Wheelchairs: A Review

A sophisticated and insightful review of Seven Wheelchairs: A Life beyond Polio is now appearing in Eclectica under the byline of the Canadian writer Niranjana Iyer.
Presley states that the aim of his book is to "show that a life disabled is a life worth living." But this work calls to my mind Socrates words—that the unexamined life is not worth living. Presley meticulously analyzes every instance where his actions and attitudes fell short of his own (very high) standards.
