"Life in the Balance is much like the Dr. Marla we all know--frank, authoritative, and wildly informative. What surprised me was the depth of intimacy here, both from Marla and from her family. They have all been struck by this disease, and their decision to share their thoughts and reflections could not have been an easy one. But we benefit from their courage, and their heart. This is a moving, deeply personal read." (Seamus O?Regan, Co-Host, Canada AM)
