Publishers Description: After a near-fatal accident in 1988 left him paraplegic, John Maclean refused to sit back and let the world go by. He established a set of goals during his 4-month recuperation period, and this is the story of how he achieved them - and what he discovered about himself along the way. John went on to conquer some of the sporting world's most gruelling challenges, including the Hawaiian Ironman Triathlon, the English Channel swim and the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. He also represented Australia in the Sydney 2000 Olympics and Paralympics. In 1998, John established a charity foundation with the aim of helping junior 'wheelies' chase their dreams. John considers this to be his greatest achievement. "Sucking the Marrow Out of Life" takes the reader on an extraordinary journey through John's life, discovering the underlying message that life is not about obstacles, or how they came about, but instead about looking inside yourself to find the strength within.
