About the Book

Losing a Hand was written by Ed with over forty eight years experience. It documents how he first came in contact with amputee friends, and then tells of how he chose amputation for himself and then with the aid of a power saw removed his own hand. The book follows with stories of his adaptation -- and success -- into amputee life. The lessons he learned and how they learned them should be inspiring to all, but especially to those people who know amputees or are amputees themselves, either by choice or by fate. The book also contains many case studies of others who lost one or more hands. It's written in a wonderful (and easy to read) down-to-earth style and comes highly recommended.
