Glasgow 3 is the lowest conscious state that exists—deep coma. I believe there is a need to make people aware of what it is to be in a coma and to come out of one, which isn’t as depicted in the movies. It is a long and complicated process.
In this book I want to show that even a person in bad shape with severe injuries has the possibility to improve. I want to give people some guidelines, show some real examples that could be useful to the families. There is no one better than your family to recognize and interpret your reactions.
The purpose of this book is to show that as long as there is life and you can feel it, you must fight.
I'll also write about my racing career, from flat track to road racing, with all the ups and downs—battles, victories, falls… very lucky moments and others I would prefer to forget, such as the World Supersport race in Russia where I almost ran over a rider who had a terrible fall right in front of me and later died.
I am very happy and grateful because the legendary racer and friend, Wayne Rainey, has written the prologue for my book.
Essentially, this book is my autobiography. There are many stories and experiences before and after the accident, including some from my childhood. And, how difficult it is to be aware of your limitations and to accept that never will things be again as they were before. They won’t be better or worse… simply different.
My goal is to help everyone who has suffered an injury similar to mine and their families through this tough process.
This will be a self-published book. As you might know, publishers keep a big portion of the profits from the sale of a book and I want to be able to supervise all the expenses but also the profits. Writing is now the only work I can do, besides rehabilitation. Also, auto-publishing allows me to tell things my own way, so you know no one has written this for me.
We have created this section where you can buy the book now, although the release date will be in 2021, meaning that the people who reserve a copy now are helping to finance the publication of my book.
This will be a limited edition of 500 copies and those who pre order the book now will have a few benefits:
• An early delivery of the first chapter dedicated and signed by me
• The exclusive prologue by Wayne Rainey
• Also, we are offering a variety of packages, some including a framed drawing by Albert Escoda.
Further below, you will also find a direct donation option. Every bit raised will be put towards the publishing of the book, but also, to my recovery fund in order to afford my expenses during this time.
We are still receiving donations via my GoFundMe page and, although we haven’t reached our goal, every small donation helps. The donation that is made here will go to my recovery as well as the publication of my book. To those that donate we will send the FIRST CHAPTER of the book in PDF to the email you provide. If it weren’t for those people who helped me with donations I would't be where I am today. Of that, I have no doubt. Thank you!
