I have just finished reading both of Michael J Fox’s books, Lucky Man and Always Looking Up. I enjoy autobiographies very much, and these are two of my favorites.
The first book, Lucky Man, tells of his rise to fame to his diagnosis with Parkinson’s Disease. It is well written, funny, sad and poignant. In his own words he tells of his struggles and triumphs. A great book, worth passing on.
The second book, Always Looking Up – The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist focuses on the last 10 years of his life, as he retires from acting, starts a Foundation and starts his journey to help find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. As with the first book, it is well written, and I found myself going to YouTube and watching the interviews that were mentioned in the book. Especially the one with Katie Couric.
These would be great gifts for people, as they are inspiring, funny and thoughtful.
