Item Description...
Since 1990, Jean Driscoll has been one of the most inspiring leaders in women's sports. Her tenacity for winning at women's wheelchair racing has delivered her into the record books, and her charisma and enthusiasm for life has captured the hearts of audiences worldwide. Best known for her eight victories at the Boston Marathon and her two Olympic silver medals (1992, 1996), Jean has inspired both men and women, athletes and non-athletes, and those with and without physical disabilities. She's been featured on Good Morning America, ABC Nightline, and the Today Show, and twice in USA Today. A documentary highlighting Jean's life story, Against the Wind, has aired on over 400 PBS stations nationwide. In addition to training and racing, Jean serves as a corporate spokesperson for Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc. As a motivational speaker, she delights in sharing her "Dream Big, Work Hard" message at conventions, corporations, schools, and with the media.

Publishers Description
Eight-Time Boston Marathon Winner and Paralympic Athlete Shares Her Story!

Jean Driscoll was named 25th of the top 100 women athletes in the century by Sports Illustrated for Women. Born with spina bifida (a hole in the spine), Jean was never supposed to walk. But because of her intense determination and true grit, she not only learned to walk but to fly — in a wheelchair across the finish line.

In her autobiography, Jean chronicles her flight from physical paralysis to true spiritual freedom. She shows us what perseverance can achieve and points us to the power of a God who gives courage and hope to overcome countless obstacles.
“What makes Driscoll the best in her business is her mental toughness.” — USA Today

“Jean Driscoll is a role model, athlete and true inspiration. Determined to Win is a touching and uplifting look into the life of a very special person and friend.” — Jackie Joyner Kersee, Female Athlete of the Century, winner of six Olympic medals.
An eight-time winner of the Boston Maraton, Jean Driscoll is also a two-time Olympic silver medalist with nine medals from the Paralympics. A college coach and motivational speaker, she has appeared on Good Morning America, The Today Show and Nightline.

Determined to Win...What an Inspiration  Sep 25, 2003
My son was in the hospital when I read this book, the Child Life Specialist asked if I would "look" at it. I read it in five hours (and I am not much of a reader)! It took off like a rocket and never stopped. Jean's story is not only an inspiring one, but it helps a parent of a child with Spina Bifida see from the child's point of view. That alone makes this book priceless. Thank you Jean, for laying it all out in the open. You have a graceful courage that any mother would be proud of.
Determined To Win is inspirational  Oct 31, 2000
Determined to Win was an excellent book. It sounded so much like what has happened in my life. Hopefully some day I'll be as sucessful as Jean in wheelchair racing but this book surely inspires me to push myself to ultimite limit in everything. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
"Determined is a winner"  Sep 27, 2000
Determined to win is an absolute winner. This book flowed like an exciting best selling novel. I feel I've not only been into Jean Driscoll's head, but also in her heart.
