Publisher's Summary

Whether via the numerous media reports, 60 Minutes specials, Women's Weekly cover stories or her first book, Everything To Live For, we know about the why, how and what of that fateful day in September 2011. We know how she died four times on the operating table and her tortuous road to recovery. We've had a glimpse of the love of her boyfriend, Michael, that sustained her, and seen hints of the inner-strength that has made her one of the most admired women in the country. But until now, the true essence of this most remarkable Australian, plus the toll her accident has all taken on her and those around her, have remained a mystery.

How and why does she push herself to ever greater physical and mental limits? What does she see when she looks in the mirror? How does her sudden celebrity (for the most unorthodox of reasons) sit with her? What lessons has she learned in the past five years? And, crucially, how can each and every one of us take those lessons and apply them to our own lives?

More than a simple chronology of events - and against the backdrop of a never-ending series of impressive physical feats, including climbing the Great Wall of China, walking the Kokoda Track and competing in not one but two Ironman competitions - this book unmasks the real Turia: funny, fierce, intelligent, flawed.

With the benefit of hindsight and five years' worth of getting of wisdom, Turia is only now able to account for how she prevailed where others might have faltered. And for the first time, in this book we get to know the people who - by Turia's own admission - made her recovery possible.

Unmasked will reveal the woman behind the headlines, and in so doing, uncover the grace, humour and inner-steel that gets Turia Pitt through every day - and which leaves the rest of us watching on in amazement.

The power of LOVE

This book, as referred to by 60 Minutes, is essentially a LOVE story because as amazing as this young woman is, the story is about the efforts of two people who show with extreme courage, commitment and a depth of devotion that allows them to continue on their life journey and be that couple they were before the devastating bush fire almost took Turias's life away. It is an incredible story, beautifully narrated from start to end and well worth taking the time out to listen and learn how the combined power of two remarkable individuals can together overcome all obstacles and achieve the seemingly impossible. Thank you for sharing your story ..............And now there are THREE...congratulations Hoskin family!

Knocked me for six

This story was incredibly well written, told and performed. I found myself talking the long way home, just to spend a little extra time in the car listening. Utterly bewildered, completely inspired, positively hopeful.

Amazing

Truly inspirational & amazing. For someone so young to have endured so much yet rise above it all and be an inspiration to all.
Makes you realise anything is possible with hard work and a positive attitude.
Only negative about this audiobook is that it would’ve been nice if a different voice was used for the male & female narratives.

What can you say apart from what an inspiration!

Turia and Michael are evidently two remarkable humans that have created something positive from a point of absolute tragedy. I'll think of Turia every time I catch myself thinking that something is "too hard" from here forward. After reading this book there are seriously no more valid excuses for not getting things done and more than anything for not appreciating and living each day to the best of once ability.

Turin Pitt is motivation on steroids

This is the most inspirational story I have ever read.
I enjoyed the format of the book and reading the views of others impacted by this life changing event,

I must have cried 50 times during this book, tears of joys rather than sadness.

A very powerful story
