9780091922672: Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist

'At the turn from our bedroom into the hallway, there is an old full-length mirror in a wooden frame ...This reflected version of myself, shaking, rumpled, pinched and slightly stooped, would be alarming were it not for the self-satisfied expression pasted across my face. I would ask the obvious question, "What are you smiling about?" but I already know the answer: "It just gets better from here."' Struck with Parkinson's - a debilitating, degenerative disease - at the height of his fame, Michael J. Fox has taken what some might consider cause for depression and turned it into a beacon of hope for millions. In Always Looking Up, Michael's Sunday Times bestselling memoir, he writes with warmth, humour and incredible honesty about the journey he has undertaken since he came to terms with his condition.

About the Author:

Michael J. Fox is best known today for his hit Channel Four sitcom Spin City that he also produced. In the eighties he became an international mega-star, first through TV shows such as Family Ties, then through the record-breaking Back To The Future movies. He launched the Michael J. Fox foundation for Parkinson's Research in 2000, which has leapt to the forefront of the effort to find a cure. He lives with his family in New York City.

From AudioFile:

At the beginning of ALWAYS LOOKING UP, Michael J. Fox takes note of the "struts" of his life--work, politics, faith, and family--and explains that his memoir is, in a way, thematic, rather than a chronology of the last 10 years. In a familiar, but somewhat changed, voice he recounts the major shifts in his life, which include leaving his acting career, creating the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, advocating for PD research, and coping with the disease itself, which has been tyrannical of recent years. However, PD is also a source of Fox's optimism--which the listener can clearly hear in his poignant and impassioned delivery. While Fox shares many realities, he also offers hope--which he calls "informed optimism." There's much to be learned and aspire to here. As an audiobook, this memoir will stay with you for a long time. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
