Summary
Mike Rolls was a sports-mad teenager when he contracted a deadly disease on a football trip. Overnight he was fighting for his life. When Mike regained consciousness, he had lost his right leg, half his left foot, two fingers and part of his nose, and had extensive internal injuries. His parents were told he had a five per cent chance of survival. After a painfully slow recovery and eight years of living with a leg that would never heal, Mike made the extraordinarily difficult decision to have his remaining leg amputated. More than just a triumph-over-adversity story, Mike's Ditch the Dead Weight combines personal experience with proven scientific research and a practical methodology for letting go of anything that no longer serves you
Summary
Mike Rolls was a teenager with his whole life ahead of him - before contracting the deadly virus, Meningococcal Septicaemia. Overnight he was fighting for his life. By the time Mike regained consciousness, he had lost his right leg, half his left foot, two fingers and part of his nose, as well as suffering extensive internal injuries. He was given a 5% chance of survival. More than just a triumph over adversity story, Ditch the Dead Weight offers an alternative approach to the challenges we all face in our lives.
