Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero, (Thomas Nelson) by Michael Hingson with Susy Flory, is the story of a man blind from birth who triumphed over adversity throughout his life. His hard won survival skills and his feisty can-do spirit prepared him to survive the World Trade Center attacks in a 78-story stairwell descent with his guide dog, Roselle. Michael’s blindness didn’t stop him from shocking the neighbors by riding his bicycle through the streets of Palmdale, California as a child, and on September 11 his blindness became an asset as he survived and helped others during the worst terrorist attack ever on American soil.
Yet, there’s more. “The real story, in my mind, isn’t how I got out of the World Trade Center,” said Michael. “It’s how I got there in the first place.”

Susy’s life was a lot like her couch–comfy, slumberous, and safe. She was a happy suburban wife and mom who enjoyed her couch-like cocoon and avoided suffering and uncomfortable situations at all costs. Then she met Rose … Eleanor … Elizabeth … and Jane. Now, thanks to their example, her life will never be the same.
SO LONG STATUS QUO is the powerful story of how nine amazing historical women inspired a suburban mom to get up off her couch and embark on a quest for something more. Venturing into unusual and even dangerous places, she followed their example and found herself serving needy children on a secret humanitarian mission to Cuba, feeding the homeless, sharing her faith in pagan communities, and selling her jewelry to fund freshwater wells in Sudan.
Inspiring, convicting, and transformational, SO LONG STATUS QUO challenges women to examine their lives and answer this question: How can I become a woman who changes the world? Whether it’s by sharing your faith like Perpetua or getting your hands dirty like Rosie the Riveter, Susy invites women of all ages to say goodbye to their old, couch-comfy lives and become women who change the world, starting in their own backyard.
