From the Publisher:

No Excuses is his inspirational autobiography that shows how a positive can-do attitude gives someone we might see as disadvantaged the advantage over life.

Faced with impossible challenges Kyle Maynard lives life with No Excuses

He was born a congenital amputee, his arms ending at his elbows and his legs at his knees. But that didn’t stop Kyle Maynard from becoming a champion, on the wrestling mat and in his life.

No Excuses is the inspiring story of Kyle’s battle against the odds. You’ll learn about the family who supported him, the coach who trained him, and the faith that strengthened him to face the toughest fights.

· Why they allowed him "no excuses"—and how that benefited Kyle as he learned to eat, type, write, and live without hands
· How Kyle earned his way onto the football team—as a hardnosed defensive lineman
· How Kyle triumphed as a top state wrestler in Georgia
· The core values that Kyle gained from his coach, his family, and the demands of competition
· How Kyle’s own incredible success met a new barrier: from the federal government, which blocked him from a future NCAA wrestling career.
· How Kyle has changed people’s minds and opinions on the value of life
· The principles that have made Kyle a champion.

· Kyle’s very own diet and exercise regimen, which helped him compete at the highest levels
· Thirteen ways to live a No Excuses life
