    Thanks for posting this. We just saw the movie yesterday and really enjoyed it so I will definitely read the book.

      Actually, the title is "You CHANGED my life". "You saved my life" is a totally different book:

        "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

        Dawna Markova Author of Open Mind.

          It is above on my response immediately before yours (free Kindle download). That is the book written by the PCA in the story.

          For the one written by the man with this SCI, see here (it is not free):

          Both claim to be the "basis for the film".

            Thanks for the clarification. The card I was handed at the movie theater stated "get a free e-book of "you changed my life", the book that inspired the movie!" I don't knoww where I got saved from. Probably too much multi tasking while watching the Olympics last night.
