From the moment I checked this book out, I couldn't put it down. I had watched (and loved) Noah on Dancing with the Stars and while you get a look into his life and story, it is brief. Living with no Excuses is an in-depth look at his life before and after his injury. From the birth of his first child and subsequent second deployment, to the moment his Humvee was hit by an IED, to waking up in the hospital missing two limbs and unable to speak, to walking and ultimately dancing with prosthetics.

As someone who usually can't make it through a biography, I found myself finishing this in a day and re-reading it countless times. You can hear Noah's voice in the words on the page, and it makes you feel like you were there. The accompanying pictures are breathtaking both traditionally and morbidly.

I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone, both those who know his story and those who don't.
