I wish there were more organization like this out there! What an inspiration! If you work in the field of developmental disabilities or even business this is a must read! OPEN YOUR MIND!
  • Abandoned Electrical
Had to purchase for class material, but very interesting story!
  • Carrot
This is an eye-opening, inspirational story. The writing is repetitive and eventually the story becomes boring because of this. But don't lose sight of the fabulous story.
  • Gavirgas
This book is incredibly inspirational.
  • Getaianne
A fawning pandering to a small man’s enormous ego. David Morris couldn’t resist writing an introduction to this celebration of his greatness, and he’s unable to hide how pleased with himself he is.

Able! is a revolutionary book that has made a tremendous impact on the way many of us approach people with disabilities. This eye opening book is a revealing account told form the prospective of an incredible CEO who had the courage to buck the system and hire people previously overlooked and unconsidered for employment. Then had the fortitude to challenge the status quo and give equal pay and benefits to his "challenged" workers - all the while out-producing his competitors and opening his doors for all to see. Included are stories by the individuals - from the staff, family members, care takers, and those who have seen first hand what true inclusion really means. The examples set by Habitat International should be shared with anyone whose life has been touched by someone with a disability to show there is a light at the end of the tunnel. There are people Like David Morris and companies like Habitat International and Walgreens with open doors willing and able to provide them with the opportunities and support they need. If you get the chance pick it up and share this book with families or friends in need reassurance and examples of people with severe disabilities who "make it" to lives of productivity and satisfaction. Able! is a gift and a true story of what it takes to make your own way no matter the odds.

I've worked with the disabled for many years and I am in fact able myself after having suffered a broken neck seven years ago.

Nancy Henderson Wurst has captured the essence of compassion and understanding in this population as she introduces you to a man who has totally embraced our differently abled friends to his advantage as well as to their own.

David Morris at great risk and with tremendous courage creates a workforce consisting mainly of disabled people and turns his business into a gold mine.

Hiring people that no one else would have is a story that touches the soul and will enrich, enlighten and change the way you think of these precious souls you once thought DIS - Abled.
I am lucky enough to know David Morris personally, he is an inspiration in my life. Nancy Henderson Wurst captures in this book what David brings to the world, and we all need to know that compassion CAN live in the successful business world. I've also been lucky enough to meet some of those who David hired, persons who were "unhirable" by traditional standards. Wow, what a thing it is to see ABLE where others see "disabled". Just imagine what that does for that person. David brings compassion, harmony and ease into the bigtime corporate world and into the lives of everyone around him. Seeing David live his life, run his business and accept others is a major catalyst for the creation of a new business venture I am bringing to the world. Just last night I figured out how to also involve ABLED persons into the mix! It took 2 months of brainstorming but now I get to also try to make a little difference in the world, and I feel great ..thanks to David! No kidding, if you are a business person who has a yearning to also contribute to the world AS you do business then you should read this little book, I bet you WILL find some possibilities in there that will bring beauty to your life ..and to others. Have a good day.
