Celebrated military hero and “Dancing with the Star” alum Noah Galloway stops at Schuler Books & Music Thursday, May 4.
Galloway will be discussing his memoir “Living with No Excuses: The Remarkable Rebirth of an American Soldier.” In the book, Galloway shares his life story, and how losing his arm and leg in combat forced him to relearn how to live – and live to the fullest.
Called inspirational, humorous and thought-provoking, “Living With No Excuses” sheds light on Galloway’s upbringing in rural Alabama, his military experience, and the battle he faced to overcome losing two limbs during Operation Iraqi Freedom. From reliving the early days of life to his acceptance of his “new normal” after losing his arm and leg in combat, Galloway reveals his ambition to succeed against all odds.
Galloway is a personal trainer and motivational speaker. He travels the country sharing his story, encouraging and motivating others to offer no excuses. He also continues to compete, participating in adventure races around the country, such as Tough Mudder, Spartan events, fitness competitions plus numerous 5Ks, 10Ks and marathons.
Most recently, Galloway took third place in ABC’s hit series, “Dancing with the Stars,” following his appearance on the November cover of “Men’s Health” magazine, as he was named the publication’s 2014 Ultimate Guy. He’s also been a guest on numerous national talk shows including “Ellen” and “The Today Show.”
Galloway will speak at 7 p.m. with a book signing afterwards. For more information, visit schulerbooks.com.
