Kevin Sorbo’s True Stength discusses a life he thought he would never see

Kevin Sorbo’s True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal–and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life is really making waves. It’s a fantastic book that recounts the three strokes and an aneurysm that nearly killed him during the fifth season of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, the number one syndicated television show that brought him fame and fortune, and his journey to recovery. In it he outlines how his frustration with traditional medicine led him to try homeopathy, yoga, and ancient Eastern medicinal practices, among other things, in his quest to be “normal” again.

I highly recommend this book whether you are a Kevin fan, someone who has experienced physical and emotional disabilities, or just simply love a good story. It’s a memoir written from several points of view, including his lovely wife, Sam, and close friends Michael Hurst, Bruce Campbell, and Eric Gruendemann, as well as a love story.

Sorbo traces his life and career history pre-Hercules. He finishes with his life today as a doting father of three young children, devoted husband, and busy working actor/director/producer, a life that on that fateful day in 1997 he thought he would never see.

Sorbo’s compelling writing style draws readers into his plight. He enables them to feel his pain of going from an extremely fit, determined 38-year-old Adonis with the world at his feet to an enfeebled, dependent, and suddenly unconfident, uncharacteristically paranoid individual.

This book deserves the world’s attention as a Number One Best Seller. How can we as Sorbo’s fans help?

I recently asked Sorbo that question for another publication. Here is his excerpted reply:

SW: So, how can we get the word out about your book?

KS: The only way to get the word out is if we can get all 10 or all 100 or all 200,000 (fans) to just constantly post the book on their own Facebook and Twitter (pages). That certainly would make a difference. It comes down to getting some good publicity out there by word-of-mouth. Whatever we can do to get this thing out to as many people as possible, and have those people email, tweet, and Facebook everybody they know.

Very cool! Check out, follow, and post these new links for the latest in True Strength news:

    I could not agree more with you,Jan! The book is fantastic! If you ever get the chance to hear the audiobook,you will love it-it brings all of the feelings Kevin experienced to life through his voice and Sam’s.

    I concur with Rhonda. The book is incredible.

    Having been a caregiver to my late father (when he was dealing with Alzheimer’s disease), I know Sam had to have gone through a lot of hell while supporting her soon-to-be husband… not to mention the fight mentioned in the chapter “Rage.”

    As I have suffered some “emotional disabilities,” I found “True Strength” to be a source of inspiration and encouragement, as I’m doing my best to live with my affliction.

    I thank Kevin for letting us share his journey from near death to “rebirth,” away from a warp speed lifestyle to a more leisurely pace.

    And I say that Kevin will appear on a future episode of the Golf Channel’s “Feherty,” after reading that remark about “that bloody Hercules is playing out of his bloody gourd.” 😀
