Two Weeks Strait
How to Succeed When Your Hands are Tied
by Mark Clearview




I spent two weeks in a straitjacket.

Set a world record at eighteen years old.

Raised over $15,000.

And donated the entire sum to

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

But why did I strap myself into an antiquated medical restraint

for fourteen days? How is that even physically possible? Why write a book about it?

Well, from heat stroke, to crashing morning television shows, to getting thrown out of amusement parks . . . I have a lot to say.

We’ve all felt restrained by circumstances outside our control—physically or emotionally. We’ve all been trapped or stuck in cities, relationships, or even our very own minds. What do we do when freedom and acceptance both seem out of the question? How do we succeed when our hands are tied? This book is about how I did just that and how, in turn, you can too.


“Our Foundation is grateful for Mark’s creativity and sheer lunacy in helping bring us one step closer to a cure.”

—Michael J. Fox.
