This book started out a littld slow but it really picked up in the middle and at the end. The stories Fox tells are touching and uplifting. It amazing how he is dealing with PD. Makes me want to learn more about stem cell research and the issues around it.

I enjoyed Lucky Man more, but this is a good follow-up. I'm glad Fox decided to read it himself, rather than having someone else read it, as in Lucky Man. I most enjoyed the sections on family, feeling the political sections dragged on somewhat.

Wonderful and inspiring book; especially with Fox reading it. So moving I bought my own copy to loan out.

I really like listening to an audio book that is read by the actual author! It really gives you their complete intention through their tone/undertones.

I grew up with Michael J Fox so many of his past references are great memories! Back to the Future, Alex P. Keaton, Spin City!

Kudos to Michael for his determination, and passion which is very evident through this writing/reading.
