What is the book?

This book is a compilation of 25 encouraging and honest stories of those facing life with a disability or a disorder.

Why the book?

After reading 25 books about living with a disability, John concluded that unless you were already famous, you had little chance of being published. He started the book project and looked for 25 people with a disability or disorder.

Why is the book named “the eighteen point five”?

We love the name ‘the eighteen point five’, as 18.5% of the population in Australia have a disability or disorder.

What experience do you have in running projects?

John has extensive experience running projects in such organisations as Origin Energy and SA Police. An accident forced him out of paid employment.
