Reviews

"Powerful."--Library Journal

"Funny, heartbreaking, and triumphant . . . Still, to label this fine book 'an inspiration' almost misses the point. Imperfect isn't about learning to cope with a disability. It's about becoming a man in America."--Mark Kriegel, author of Pistol: The Life of Pete Maravich and Namath: A Biography "Terrific . . . Imperfect can teach all of us valuable lessons."--Cal Ripken, Jr. "A story of how to fight, overcome and, ultimately, thrive."--Newsday
