Summary

Rhett Brown the Life Saver. Now that’s a strange title for a man in a wheelchair. Why is he in a chair? Why is he labelled a ‘tetraplegic’? What does that mean for him? How does he cope with everyday life?
One day on a construction site ... A near suicide, divorce, rehabilitation – any one of these would stretch a person to the limit, but Rhett Brown had them all to deal with.
With dogged determination and sheer guts, Rhett has risen above these adversities to emerge a successful, inspirational professional speaker. As a result, thousands of workers around the country who have heard his story have been made aware of a new safety culture emerging in New Zealand workplaces.
From TRAGIC to MAGIC, this is his ‘way up’ – a universal story of how we can all release hidden strengths from within ourselves. You may cry, you may laugh, but you will enjoy this refreshingly honest tale of one man’s struggle.

Reviews:
‘This is a story of triumph over deep darkness ... Rhett found life and light and purpose once again ... To experience the light, we don’t need to go as far down as Rhett did, nor even to experience the kind of life awakening he did. But sometimes we need help in sorting out the mess.’Michael Godfrey

‘Shit happens, and it’s not the hurdle in front of you that’s the problem, it’s how you’re going to get over the damn thing. It has been an epic journey watching Dad go through different stages of trauma through to rehab, depression, grief, potential suicide and coming out the other end, enabled to see a future.’ Rhett’s daughter Belinda
