‘You Only Want Me For My Mind’ reveals a quirky boy born not only with cerebral palsy but with an uncanny ability to overcome obstacles and mobilise people. From a controlling and oppressive background, we watch him laugh off the verdicts of the experts as he grows towards a life of his choosing – as an independent artist, writer and mentor for young people. Despite being completely non-verbal with only the limited movement of one hand hovering over a communication board, John Rynn is making a statement in writing this book. Composed twenty-nine words a day over a gruelling seven years, this memoir stands as a testament to his creativity and pluck. This is a story of how to survive and prevail over the impact of life shattering events. Even more, it’s about surpassing the limits dealt to us and thriving with gratitude, humour and vitality.
