This book is not about the pain and suffering. It's not about overcoming obstacles or finding courage. And it's no pity party. It tears down stereotypes-from the meek Tiny Tim to the embittered Captain Ahab-and answers society's inevitable stares by staring right back.

Exposing, laughing at, and exploring the experience of living with a disability, Don't Push Me takes a serious stab at a ...

    This book is not about the pain and suffering. It's not about overcoming obstacles or finding courage. And it's no pity party. It tears down stereotypes-from the meek Tiny Tim to the embittered Captain Ahab-and answers society's inevitable stares by staring right back.

    Exposing, laughing at, and exploring the experience of living with a disability, Don't Push Me takes a serious stab at a serious topic-without taking itself too seriously. Author Ed Hooper sits down with his outspoken alter ego Spokes Ableman to discuss walking the wheelchair walk, explaining how his thinking about being disabled developed and showing what really puts a smile on his face-and what pisses him off.

    The two old buddies talk about stigmatization, how a happy quadriplegic doesn't fit the narrative, and that "click" of realization that you're playing life's game under a different set of rules.

    "You became a member of the club that nobody wants to join, Hooper. You're a gimp; live with it."

    That's Spokes.

    Addressing feeling unwanted, in the way, and pressured to acquiesce to second-class treatment, among numerous other salient issues, Don't Push Me offers a fresh voice in support of dignity, equality, and respect.
