The incredible life of an astonishing athlete and now disability advocate - fully updated

'His characteristic enthusiasm and distinctive voice leap from the pages.' The Age

Dylan Alcott is the Australian tennis star we always wanted.' Herald Sun

'He'll be seen and heard for generations to come, inspiring all along the way. His ride ... a non-stop thriller.' Fox Sports

Dylan Alcott has never let his disability get in the way of what he wanted to achieve.

His family treated him no differently to any other kid, and it was the best thing they ever did. Growing up, Dylan always had a positive attitude to life. So when he discovered sport, he'd have a go at anything and could always be found at the centre of the action, giving his best and playing to win. Then he tried wheelchair basketball and tennis and was hooked.

Fast forward ten years or so, and the now three-time Paralympic gold medallist, Order of Australia recipient, world No 1 tennis champion, Logie winner and philanthropist combines elite sport with a love for music (he's a radio announcer and host of music show The Set and is famous for his crowd surfing). But Dylan's greatest passion is changing the way those with disabilities are perceived, and to inspire young people - whether they have disabilities or are able-bodied - to achieve their dreams. It's a passion that drives him every day of his life.

In this fully updated edition of Able, which includes stories about his latest achievements, including Wimbledon and the French Open, Dylan shares his story. It's the tale of someone who's proud of who he is, who has a go, does everything with heart and soul, who always sees the upside and never takes himself too seriously. As inspiring, honest and funny as its author, Able proves that for every one thing you can't do, there are 10,000 other things that you can.
