內容簡介

Hilarious and inspiring, Anner has made a life filled with fans, love, and Internet fame reminding us that disability is no match for dreams. "People" (Book of the Week) 
Zach Anner is way more than an inspirational figure for anyone who has ever felt impossibly different: he s also a great f**king writer. Lena Dunham 
Comedian Zach Anner opens his frank and devilishly funny book, "If at Birth You Don't Succeed," with an admission: he botched his own birth. Two months early, underweight and under-prepared for life, he entered the world with cerebral palsy and an uncertain future. So how did this hairless mole-rat of a boy blossom into a viral internet sensation who's hosted two travel shows, impressed Oprah, driven the Mars Rover, and inspired a John Mayer song? (It wasn't "Your Body is a Wonderland.")

Zach lives by the mantra: when life gives you wheelchair, make lemonade. Whether recounting a valiant childhood attempt to woo Cindy Crawford, encounters with zealous faith healers, or the time he crapped his pants mere feet from Dr. Phil, Zach shares his fumbles with unflinching honesty and characteristic charm. By his thirtieth birthday, Zach had grown into an adult with a career in entertainment, millions of fans, a loving family, and friends who would literally carry him up mountains.""
" "
" If at Birth You Don't Succeed "is a hilariously irreverent and heartfelt memoir about finding your passion and your path even when it's paved with epic misadventure. This is the unlikely but not unlucky story of a man who couldn't safely open a bag of Skittles, but still became a fitness guru with fans around the world. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll fall in love with the Olive Garden all over again, and learn why cerebral palsy is, definitively, "the sexiest of the palsies."

Praise for Zach Anner 
Cerebral palsy couldn't stop Anner from becoming a celeb, traveling the world, and Friending Oprah (for starters). "Cosmopolitan"
""
"" Zach makes you want to be a better person, with his humor and his heart and everything he's had to deal with from the time he was born. I've never met anyone like him, and I've met a lot of people. Oprah Winfrey 
Zach Anner is a truly inspiring and hysterical human being with a warped sense of humor (and body). He s also an exceptional writer and his memoir is an absolute joy. Rainn Wilson 
A characteristically hilarious and candid book about growing up with cerebral palsy, winning a reality TV contest with Oprah s OWN channel and becoming an unlikely-yet-inspiring fitness guru and YouTube celebrity with more than 10 million views. What s Trending 
Zach Anner is the living definition of giving better than he s gotten. Life dealt him a difficult hand but he managed to beat the house with humor, heart, and a fearless punk attitude. Required reading. Patton Oswalt 
I love Zach Anner and I love his memoir. If everyone were a little more like Zach, the world may not be a "better" place, but it would be funnier place, which is a great step forward. Reddit Co-founder Alexis Ohanian

He s a unique, creative kid with a smart, edgy sense of humor. Arsenio Hall 
I think I speak for everybody when I say...I want to see more of Zach. John Mayer 
Wonderful. . . Anner s comedy is the peppy, uplifting sort you d expect from someone who Oprah says makes [her] want to be a better person, such as his elaborate Olive Garden metaphors for the nature of life. . . . Anner remarks wryly that being expected to act as an ambassador for the disabled is a tightrope walk, which is hard on four wheels. Maybe so, but with this book, he makes it look easy. "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) 
Funny, empowering An inspirational memoir with a seasoned, infectious sense of humor [Anner s book chronicles] his three decades of life (so far) with cerebral palsy, a permanent condition that hasn t prevented him from living his dream as a comic, a media sensation, and a motivational speaker. "Kirkus Reviews""
