Listened to this on my drive across state. Read by the author (yay) and abridged (boo). A rambling memoir between career and disease and coping with both. I enjoyed parts of this book despite the writing style. Wouldn't seek out the unabridged version. Learned a lot about Parkinson's Disease. Now have a strong desire to rewatch Family Ties. Overall rating - liked it but didn't love it.

Michael J Fox's memoir about the ups and downs of his very public career is intertwined with stories from his childhood and ultimately his brave battle with early onset Parkinson's Disease. Despite the devastating effects of PD on his body it is clear from this memoir that Michael leads a life full of happiness and hope. His dedication to research into PD is to be admired. An interesting biography and positive story of hope and determination. Great read!

I read this one after reading his second book, Notes from an incurable optimist. This is not a typical celebrity biography. There is real substance here, and inspiration to be taken from the way Fox deals with Parkinson's Disease.

Michael J. Fox brings the same wit, humour and insight that has graced his most famous roles. His memoir is both enganging and entertaining!
