Summary Summary: "The toughest game in the world. The toughest men in the world. Call them disabled at your peril. The inspirational story of Australia's murderball team and their journey to the Paralympics. Australian Ryley Batt, a 20-year old who was born with no legs and webbed hands, is considered the world's best player. He and his colleagues are determined to become the No 1 Murderball team in the world. And after what they've been through in their lives, no one could question their ability to smash through all obstacles in their path. But Murderball's more than a game. It's these players' lives. Each and every one of these men has a hell of a story to tell, a story of courage against overwhelming odds and humour in the face of despair."--Publisher description.
