About the Author

Jim Stovall is a highly sought-after motivational speaker. Despite
failing eyesight in his teen years that ended in blindness, Jim Stovall
has been a national champion Olympic weight lifter, a successful
investment broker, and an entrepreneur. He is the cofounder and
president of the Narrative Television Network, which makes movies
and television accessible for America’s thirteen million blind and
visually impaired people and their families. Although NTN was
originally designed for the blind and visually impaired, more than 60
percent of its nationwide audience is made up of fully sighted people
who simply enjoy the programming. The network’s programming is
also available free of charge, twenty-four hours a day, via the Internet
at www.NarrativeTV.com.

The Narrative Television Network has received an Emmy Award
and an International Film and Video Award among its many industry
honors. NTN has grown to include more than 1,200 cable systems
and broadcast stations, reaching more than 35 million homes in the
United States, and is shown in eleven foreign countries.

Stovall joined the ranks of Walt Disney, Orson Welles, and four
U.S. presidents when he was selected as one of the Ten Outstanding
Young Americans by the U.S. Junior Chamber. He has appeared on
Good Morning America and CNN, and has been featured in Reader’s
Digest, TV Guide, and Time magazines. He is the author of previous
books titled You Don’t Have to Be Blind to See, Success Secrets of
Super Achievers, The Way I See the World, and The Ultimate Gift. The
Ultimate Gift has been made into a major motion picture by 20th
Century Fox starring James Garner, Brian Dennehy, and Abigail
Breslin. The sequel book The Ultimate Life is now available and is
currently in development for what, hopefully, will be a sequel movie.
The President’s Committee on Equal Opportunity selected Stovall as
the 1997 Entrepreneur of the Year.

In June 2000, Stovall joined notables such as President Jimmy
Carter, Nancy Reagan, and Mother Teresa when he received the
International Humanitarian Award.
