    1. One Step at a Time: A Young Marine's Story of Courage, Hope and a New Life in the NFL isn't my typical read, but it was recommended to me as a possible gift idea for my dad, who isn't a big reader but who occasionally likes the random book. Since my dad is a Colts fan, and is a lifelong Hoosier (as is author Josh Bleill), I thought he might indeed like it, so I ordered it (and of course read it first myself!).I'm glad I did; I really, really enjoyed this book. We meet Josh as he joins the Marine [...]


    2. One Step At a time tells the fenominal story about a young marine who had lost his two legs when a bomb had deployed in his teams humvy. I have given this is no doubt five star, I feel that this book gave me alot of inspiration, and sets an amazing example of how far thinking positive can take you. " I knew i couldnt give when i was at my weakest point, i knew i could get through this" this quote really caught my eye, it was amazing ot read that this young marine is going through this much pain [...]


    3. One Step at a Time is a great motivational book. It takes you on the journey of a wounded soldier ,Josh Bleill, and his path to recovery. I recommend it because it shows the psychological and physical battles that American soldiers have to go through. It is not really a war book as much as it is a motivational book. Also, there are lots of life lessons throughout the book. The narrator in the book is from Indiana, so there are lots of parts in the book that can be related to.



    4. Published in 2010 by Triumph BooksIn a sentence, this book is about a 27 year-old Hoosier who joins the Marines, loses his leg due to an explosion in Iraq, re-builds his life and gets a job with the Indianapolis Colts as a community spokesman.All true but the book is so much more than that because Bleill makes his story resonate with the reader.Josh Bleill joined the Marines at age 26. He never quite finished college. He never quite got serious with his girlfriend. He never quite got serious abo [...]


    5. The memoir One step at a Time is an inspiring story about a wounded Marine's life to recovery when he gets severally injured in Fellujah, Iraq. Josh Bleil was hurt and suffered the amputation of both legs above the knee(AK). He tells about the changes and adgustment he has to make to get used to his new life. I would definitely recommend this book. My dad was injured in Afghanistan and i would always think i can't do this anymore. but when i read this book i though "If a man with no legs can go [...]


    6. This is a great book to read if you're seeking to understand what it's like for a soldier returning from war. It addresses the physical but also psychological challenges they face. It was humbling for me to read, considering I work with veterans everyday. Sometimes it can be very easy to forget how much they have gone through and what a difficult transition it is to return to their previous life. Josh uses humor and I really enjoyed his honesty about the dark days he went through and about strug [...]


    7. I enjoyed the book. He is coming to speak to my volunteers next month, so I wanted to read it before he came. I cried alot, but I'm a crier so take that for what it is. I thought it was generally well written (but the editor could have done better, several sentences were missing words) and easy to read. It told Bleill's story without getting bogged down in his injuries or sounding too much like a PR piece for the Colts. I can't imagine facing what he has dealt with and I thought the book was a g [...]


    8. What an inspirational story, Josh really makes you feel like you are right there inside of him seeing, feeling and doing things and he doesn't leave out the darker days he deals with. Actually enjoyed the boot camp part since my youngest is a Marine and he too went to San Diego and I had the chance to go there to encourage him to get past his knee injury and a few weeks later he was graduating! I can fully understand the pride a Marine has like Josh mentions, they go through hell in boot camp!


    9. I should be impressed by Josh Bleill story, and I AM, but this book leaves much to be desired. It reads like a dictionary, dry, with definitions every two lines. Marine terminology have been sprinkled on the pages with a heavy hand. If you've never been in the Marines, you cannot understand the book without the definition. If you've been in the Marines, the countless definitions will bore you. This book was short, but dragged on. I did not enjoy it.


    10. This is an honest, touching story about a young man who is injured in Iraq and how he chooses to live his life. This is a story of courage, hope and hard work and the phrase Marines live by "adapt and overcome." Read it and you'll be reminded not to sweat the small stuff. You'll also be reminded to thank the men and women of the military and their families.


    11. I feel bad for scoring the book so low it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't fantastic. The author is so sporadic that he'll jump across huge time gaps and you won't even realize it. Also, it's extremely repetitive. You'll hear the same statement/story like 10 times and it just gets old. But it did have a good message behind it! Not bad as far as non-fiction titles go.


    12. My first read of the New Year and it was awesome. Another vet whose life was changed in a matter of seconds.g what he was trained to dootect our Freedom. Josh will make you laugh, cry and salute the men and women who serve in our military. OOOHH RAAAYY to Josh.


    13. I was stunned at how much I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The fact that I know the whole story and the family, made the journey more enjoyable. The story kept my attention and was hard to put down.WELL DONE, Josh!


    14. This is one of the best inspirational books I've read. He truly incorporates the Marine motto "adapt and overcome" to the challenges he faced after being severely wounded in Iraq. I'm proud that the Colts hired him once he left Walter Reed hospital and came back home to resume his life in Indiana.



    15. I think all U.S. citizens and those who want to became citizens should have to read this book, because freedom is not free!





    16. This is a perfect book for Hoosiers, Indianapolis Colts fans, all American citizens, believers, doubters, hawks, doves, parents and teenagers. --Indiana High School Librarian
