Feedback from In-Person Events:

"Changing the entire concept of what’s possible. A beautiful account of the most testing missions. Nims’s ability to control his mind and achieve his goal shows us all how we can achieve our own goals. Nims also puts into perspective how SMALL many of our goals are... What Nims has done has truly been, one great leap for mankind." - Lucy
