Bonner Paddock’s Memoir, One More Step, Reaches New York Times Bestsellers List
The Story of Human Perseverance and Adventure Demonstrates How Much We
Can Achieve When We Push Beyond Our Limits
Tustin, CA – Bonner Paddock, the first person with cerebral palsy to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro and complete the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, unassisted, received some outstanding news today as his memoir; One More Step, My Story of Living with Cerebral Palsy, Climbing Kilimanjaro, and Surviving the Hardest Race on Earth, made the New York Times Bestsellers List for “Expeditions, Disasters, and Adventures.” One More Step chronicles Bonner Paddock’s life, living with cerebral palsy, and his inspiring message to others.
In One More Step, co‐authored with New York Times bestselling author Neal Bascomb, Bonner shares a gripping story of human perseverance and adventure that demonstrates we all have a choice: either, define our life by limitations, or discover just how much we can achieve when we push beyond them.
“It’s easy to see why the book is doing so well” said Bascomb. “Given his generosity and spirit, Bonner deserves every success. Following our first meeting, I knew his story would move readers. His passion to take on anything that comes his way showcases the kind of guy he is.”
“I am incredibly honored to join the group of authors whose books have made this prestigious list,” added Paddock, “If just one life breathes easier as a result of the efforts in writing this book, we will have succeeded.”
Paddock has pledged a portion of the book proceeds back into his foundation, OM Foundation (OMF), to help special needs children.
