Life to the Limit
A memoir

by Bev Brock

At 22, Bev Brock dived into shallow water and broke her neck. She was told she’d never walk freely again. A few months later she was out dancing in a neck brace, and playing basketball the day the brace came off. Bev Brock does not break easily.

After enduring more than her fair share of ups and downs – including the heartbreaking public separation from racing-car legend Peter Brock, and the messy legal battle that left her flat broke – Bev continues to celebrate life with inimitable wit, warmth, honesty and optimism.
