Walking Isn't Everything was written by Jean Denecke about her experience of living with polio. This book discusses what it was like to get polio, her experiences with various hospitals and doctors, and her experience in the Roosevelt Foundation facility in Warm Springs, Georgia. Giving a glimpse of how the delivery of medical services have changed since the polio epidemics of the early 1950s, the book describes what it was like to be a woman with a disability in that era. Even though she was hospitalized for a long time, after going to Warm Springs, she was able to return to her home where she continued in her role as a wife and mother, and later started her own business. Walking Isn't Everything is more than just a biography of one remarkable woman - it is a story of courage, determination, and love.Cripzen: A manual for survival.
