Item Description...
John Foppe, born without arms, has faced obstacles-both physical and emotional-his entire life. While some see his condition as a debilitating handicap, John disagrees. "Our only handicaps are those mental and emotional ones that prevent us from participating fully in life."John is a creative problem solver, and his inspiring story will enable you to see that the only things preventing you from accomplishing your goals are self-imposed limitations. His education in clinical social work and his experience as a professional speaker give him unique insight on overcoming adversity. Here he reveals how to break through negative thinking and allow God to empower you to do great things.

Publishers Description

Born without arms, John Foppe has faced unique obstacles to living a normal life. But what he's always had is an indomitable faith―a faith that not only gives him the will to survive, but also the will to thrive. By applying his own experiences as well as the unique insights he's developed as a trained counselor and motivational speaker, John advises us how to confidently confront adversity and discover our own dynamic potential for accomplishment and fulfillment.

As John says, even when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, "All things are within reach."

"John Foppe's book "What's Your Excuse? "is an inspiration just like he is for all those who have been touched by him." ―Jimmy Johnson, former NFL coach, Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins

"If you truly want to reach your goals, then you must read "What's Your Excuse? "" ―Rudy Ruettiger, the inspiration behind the TriStar hit movie Rudy

"Every one of us has survived some type of tragedy. John's story and practical insights help all of us to overcome the challenges in our lives. "What's Your Excuse?" is not just an inspirational book but a definitive 'how to' guide for triumphing over our problems." ―Dav Pelzer, number one international bestselling author of "A Child Called It "and "Help Yourself"

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Incredibly Moving Story Of Someone Who Refuses To Quit  May 19, 2002
Of the 1,000 books I have read on Success/Motivation/Inspiration this one is the finest. John Foppe is a living example of someone who became a winner in life, when it would have been much easier to be a whiner.

His story will inspire you, impact your thinking, and most of all provide you with inspiration to take your life to a whole new level.

He's a grateful young man who's overcome so much, and someone I'm proud to know. Whether you are in sales, leadership, a student, or in transition, this book will inspire you to take action.

The best part of reading John's book is that you will have an amazing story to share with others. They will be glad you did. I know I am.

Disarming the excuses  May 14, 2002
Clearly, "What's your excuse? making the most of what you have" is a must read for everyone. This book is John Foppe's life, his story, but most importantly it is his message. And, his message is simple -- all things are within reach, but we must do the reaching. "What's your excuse?" will have you laughing, then crying, and then laughing again. Snuck in the middle of all the stories are wonderful teaching points that will give fresh insight to operating in this hectic world. John has disarmed all the excuses that I had, and I believe it will have a great impact on your life as well.
Great for teens and adults  Apr 26, 2002
This is a book that you read and then you go back and take your time reading it again. The first time through you are so caught up in what John's story is that you might not take the time to reflect on how to apply it to your own situation. "What's Your Excuse" is a book that I find personally rewarding and can't wait to share chapter by chapter with my small study group. This is a book I would recommend to anyone who wants a "refresher" on what is good about life!
This is the best...........  Apr 20, 2002
As one who has read extensively in the category of "motivational and inspirational", I can say with confidence that "What's Your Excuse?" is destined to become THE recommended book for anyone seeking a better life. In this book, John offers an open and honest appraisal of his own situation, which helps us to reveal our own. Through his own stories and examples he clarifies the principles and suggestions that will help us find our way to a fuller and more meaningful life. This book is a life changer!
