"Fifty years ago he was a young man in a wheelchair who needed to get to work. Today Ralph Braun is CEO of BraunAbility, the largest manufacturer of wheelchair-accessible vehicles in the world. Capitalizing on the age-old saying 'Necessity is the mother of invention,' Braun refused to let his disability hold him back and , in the process, brought independence and mobility to thousands. 'Rise Above' tells the story of how self-reliance, common sense, and a refusal to accept the status quo led to one man's triumph in business and in life."--Jacket.
