Becoming a Person - inspirational story

Potton & Burton published this biography in 2014 and it was such an amazing story.
To see his recent success is wonderful. Here’s a couple of news stories that ran last week..
Becoming a Person is an often painful, but ultimately uplifting account of how an intellectually disabled New Zealander helped change the world. It challenges us to re-examine our notions of what it is to be human.
John McRae is a writer and documentary maker who has spent many years sharing stories and educating others about the lives of people with disabilities. From the first encounter with Robert Martin, John knew he had met an extraordinary New Zealander and has determined to share Robert’s story and passion. Over several years he recorded interviews, observations and chats with Robert’s friends and influences and campaigned to gain publication of the challenging result.
