Ignoring DS – Memoirs and Reflections
Andy Trias Trueta from Barcelona has compiled his reflections, articles and memoirs in handwritten notebooks for more than sixteen years.
Now, thanks to a selection of some of his best writings, he shows a good part of his opinions and his thoughts. The reader will be able to enter his day to day, full of contemporary history and, at the same time, will find answers to the great questions that life poses. Through Andy’s brave and lucid gaze, and with a clear and very personal style, we will discover that willpower and determination move mountains.
The book was published by the Fundacio Catalana Sindrome de Down a few years ago in Catalan and in Spanish and is now translated into English.
