You Only Want Me for My Mind reveals a quirky boy born not only with cerebral palsy but with an uncanny ability to overcome obstacles and mobilise people. In a world reminiscent of My Left Foot and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, we watch him laugh off the verdicts of the experts as he grows towards a life of his choosing - as an independent artist, writer and mentor for young people. Despite being completely non-verbal with only the limited movement of one hand hovering over a communication board, John Rynn is making a statement in writing this book. Composed twenty-nine words a day over a gruelling seven years, this memoir stands as a testament to his creativity and pluck. This is a story of how to survive and prevail over the impact of life shattering events. Even more, it's about surpassing the limits dealt to us and thriving with gratitude, humour and vitality. John reminds us to look into the eyes and souls of all individuals; to respect their uniqueness, honour their goodness, and admire their courage. His story exemplifies how adversities can strengthen one's spirit, not destroy it. - Leonore Rizy MA, Human Development; USA National Board Certification: Exceptional Needs Educator John relates his personal memories of the challenges and highlights of his life with humour, courage and insight. Joys, sadness, achievement and a sustaining positive attitude to life despite many setbacks ring through John's story. - Dr Yvonne Burns AO
