NIEK'S Story bundled IN a book: CRASH

-More than 15,000 copies sold, translated into English and 5 stars on bol.com

This is not another story about someone who gets into a single-vehicle accident and sees the light. This is Niek’s story. A story about love, pain, dead sperm, power, a puppy, inclusivity, perseverance, humour and success

Aged 28, Niek van den Adel takes a nosedive while riding his motorcycle. It causes paraplegia, leaving him paralysed from the chest down. Plus something extra: he has a syrinx, a cavity within the spinal cord that continuously threatens the body parts that do still work.
According to Niek, paraplegia and a syrinx are the perfect combination for only the toughest guys. But as long as you can live with it, you’d better do so, he says. And in that case, you’d better do it good.

So five years later, he is married to his occupational therapist, has become dad of twins, has a house being built, delivers speeches to thousands of people as a coach and motivator, teaches senior-level executives about inclusivity and writes an insanely popular blog. His motto: happiness is not in your legs. Happiness is a choice.
