From millimetres to mountains – an inspirational story of triumph over adversity against the odds

At 27, professional rugby player Ed Jackson was told he would never walk again. A freak accident, involving a swimming pool and a miscalculated dive, broke his neck and crushed his spinal cord. Jackson had to be resuscitated three times and spent weeks in intensive care – for the first of those, he couldn't so much as twitch a muscle.

But three years on from the accident, Jackson's recovery is nothing short of miraculous. Defying the predictions of even the most optimistic specialists, the former London Wasps and Bath man has not only learned to walk again, he's found a new calling: mountaineering. Ed focused on regaining millimetres of movement in his toe and set himself the task of summiting Mount Snowden. One year on from his accident, Ed defied medical opinion and achieved his goal. His triumph inspired him to prove that he had plenty more still to give. Ed set himself his greatest challenge of all: to fund a spinal unit in Kathmandu by climbing the huge Mera Peak – one of the tallest mountains in Nepal.

Part autobiography, part personal development, LUCKY is Ed Jackson's story of how he overcame adversity and coped with massive change – and how you can too.
