More than a Watchmaker
“More than a Watchmaker” is the autobiography of Rick Hohn, an amazingly accomplished man who was diagnosed at age 2 with cerebral palsy, which affects all four of his limbs and restricts his speech. The doctor who diagnosed Rick told his parents that despite his severe disabilities, he would be able to do anything — but make a watch.  The doctor knew he had intelligence but lacked the fine-motor abilities to do intricate work. How true this has been!
