    :

    This is a great little book that tells a very important story.
    Once you have read this book you will never think of wheelchair access in the same way.

    You may think that in the UK accessibility is good but could always be better. When you read this book you will realise that there is still along way to go before UK access reaches a satisfactory level.

    Then read where accessibility is in less well developed countries, such as Nepal, and you’ll learn there is absolutely no special access for wheelchairs in these countries.
    But what the hell – it does not matter because there are hardly anyone has a wheelchair!

    So buy the book, read it and think very, very deeply – I guarantee it will change your view about wheelchair and disabled access.

    I have known Steve Wilkinson for several years but wasn’t aware of International Wheelchair Day until our paths crossed a few weeks ago. Steve just happened to have a few copies of his book handy and his persuasive skills quickly made me purchase a copy.
    What an interesting book and well worth reading. The idea of an international wheelchair day is a fantastic idea and it is good to see it is helping to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by anyone using a wheelchair.
    It is also good to see how the message is spreading around the globe.
    Steve you have done a great job with this publication and I wish you continuing success with what you have started.
