A: This book is different from other books in this subject area mainly because it was written, formatted, and published by a blind and physically disabled person, whose own experiences serve as inspiration throughout the book.

She has been there, done that, and she knows what is effective for true bliss and what you should stay far away from.
This book is also written from a devout Christian’s perspective, and therefore, touches upon the importance of faith in God. The author owes her successes and happiness to God, and all the treasures He has abundantly bestowed upon her.

“If there is ever to be a poster person for people with ultra-abilities, it would have to be twenty-four-year-old Shirley Cheng. The author has turned her disabilities into an ultra-ability and written the awe-inspiring Embrace Ultra-Ability! Cheng’s slim but power-packed motivational guide delivers what it promises with its wisdom, insights, and motivation. It is a volume to be read, re-read, and treasured for its originality, readability, and courageous approach to dealing with life’s adversities, and from an individual who has had far more than her fair share of them.
“Cheng is a first-class role model for taking the cards one is dealt in life and turning them into a winning hand.
