If at Birth You Don't Succeed

Zach Anner

Overview

It may seem to some that comedian Zach Anner might not have a lot to laugh about. But being born with cerebral palsy is not a disadvantage for Anner. He shares his struggles and joys with millions of people around the world, using laughter to process the hardships that affect all of us.

Cerebral palsy (or CP) affects the whole body's ability to control muscles and maintain balance, which causes problems with vision, speech, the spine, and many more complications. Most people with cerebral palsy need some form of assistance, and those with severe CP usually need lifelong care.

If at Birth You Don't Succeed is a story of serious disability, acceptance, and joy. This personal collection of Anner's reminiscences shows us how a boy with cerebral palsy went on to charm the world.
