Not Afraid to Fall by Brian Hall comprises nine chapters of faith, strength, and courage in a man who simply did not want to give up. When Brian Hall saw the early signs of Parkinson's disease, he was just 14 years old. It was at that moment when Brian promised himself he would not be afraid and he would not give in. While the medical condition gave him a worthy fight, Brian always one-upped it and made sure he taught the disease that he was never giving up. He found a healthy balance in which he could fight the disease and live his life to the fullest. His approach was unorthodox, but it worked. He shares his journey from the hardest of times to the times when he felt at his best. He shares his experiences with the disease, how he manages his day to day life, and how going through DBS surgery affected him.
This real-life hero shows that anyone can do whatever they want and achieve it too, if only they put their mind to it. Brian Hall's journey is beautifully and eloquently revealed in this book where he takes readers back to when he was at his worst and shows them how his actions made him the man he always wanted to be. A chronic illness like Parkinson's disease scared me for a long time, but reading the author’s first-hand account made me realize how inconsequential everything becomes when you want something badly. His story, his struggles, and his positivity would be a huge help to those who need it the most, especially those fighting Parkinson's disease. His story was almost healing for the soul and made me realize how blessed I was even with all my flaws. A very helpful book for anyone who is going through tough situations and needs a boost.
