review Lucky Man Michael J. Fox Ô 0 review review Lucky Man º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook In September 1998 Michael J Fox stunned the world by announcing he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease a degenerative neurological condition In fact he had been secretly fighting it for seven years The worldwide response was staggering Fortunately he had accepted the diagnosis and by the time the public started grieving for him he had stopped grieving for himself Now with the same pa. I have been meaning to read this for years and finally came across a copy last week I was determined to find it in store I m not sure why What s funny is while I know I would have enjoyed this book at any point in the years that was on my keep an eye out for this one list of books I think now was the perfect time for me to read it It s well written funny insightful and refreshingly candid which is what I expected really I ve always enjoyed Michael J Fox like so many of us I ve watched the Back to the Future trilogy over and over again I like Spin City and I m not all that big on sitcoms and I ve seen a few very enjoyable episodes of Family Ties So of course all of that was interesting to read about but it was the way he covers his Parkinson s disease that really resonated with me Without being too specific in a personal sense as someone who has a chronic illness there was a lot to relate to here The disease and symptoms may be completely different but there are many aspects of the emotional journey that are incredibly similar Certain pages would jump out at me perfectly describing things I have felt feel or sense will one day be relevant I would recommend this book both as a genuinely interesting memoir what an incredible life and also as an insight into serious illness The information about Parkinson s disease is important to read and it was cathartic in an unexpected waywwwmichaeljfoxorg

review Lucky Man

review Lucky Man Michael J. Fox Ô 0 review review Lucky Man º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ssion humor and energy that Fox has invested in his dozens of performances over the last 18 years he tells the story of his life his career and his campaign to find a cure for Parkinson'sCombining his trademark ironic sensibility and keen sense of the absurd he recounts his life from his childhood in a small town in western Canada to his meteoric rise in film and television which made him a. Another theme besides medicine that is popping up in my recent reading is Canada I ve read books about Canada Canadians and stories taking place in Canada Michael J Fox s memoir Lucky Man falls under both categories medicine for his thoughts on living with Parkinson s Disease and Canada born in Edmonton Alberta Lucky Man also ualifies as one of the best books I ve read this yearFox begins his memoir with his diagnosis of young onset Parkinson s Disease but the book isn t just about living with PD but about all the ups and downs of his life and who he has grown as a person He covers his childhood growing up as a military brat on various bases throughout Canada his closeness with his grandmother and his interest in both rock and roll and actingOf course the meat of the book is Fox s experience with PD and the main reason why I wanted to read it having known so many people with the disease Fox writes with brutal honesty about his denial of the situation using alcohol to deal with the news and trying to use his medications to hide the tremors in his hands to keep his career going while keeping the PD a secretThe book though is not a sob story or a pity party Fox isn t asking for sympathy The book seems to have been a form of personal therapy from reading the Acknowledgements at the back of the book That people want to read his memoir seems to both humble him and amaze him If you are interested in the actor or know some with PD or both read Lucky Man
