Beyond Ceilings
by Everett J. Mohatt

Beyond Ceilings, the second part of Everett (Skip) Mohatt’s memoir, continues the story begun in Ceilings. Beyond Ceilings is the story of one man’s triumph over adversity, overcoming both the physical limitations resulting from childhood polio and the widespread institutional prejudice against handicapped people to become a sucessful educator and basketball coach.

Beyond Ceilings ought to be required reading for anyone who has heard ‘no’ more often than ‘yes’ in their pursuit of a goal. Skip Mohatt beat the odds because talent and hard work prevails more often than not, and he exhibited both in his career. This book explains how he did it, so get past the back cover and dive inside. It’ll be well worth the effort.”
Ray Ratto, Sports columnist and reporter,
San Francisco Chronicle.

Beyond Ceilings is an inspiring story of the human spirit, recalling the terror that the polio epidemic of the late 1940s spread across America. Mohatt's poignant memoir deals with his struggles as a boy and man, overcoming his own limitations and social prejudices to reach his goal of becoming a basketball coach.”
