Kevin Sorbo was at the pinnacle of his career. He played the invincible Hercules on the number-one TV show in the world. He had met the women of his dreams. He had accomplished all of this before the age of 38.

However, when a sudden health crisis left him partially blind and incapacitated, the direction of his life changed forever. He hid the full details of his health problems from the press as he continued to film Hercules, his health continued to decline. In his inspiring memoir, True Strength, Sorbo shares the story of the crisis that ultimately redefined his measure of success.
