Format: Kindle Edition
I've always been a fan of Michael Fox's. When I saw this memoir for only 2 bucks on Amazon, I couldn't resist. Boy, am I glad I grabbed it. I learned much about Michael the man, since I already knew the actor.
I thought I knew enough too but soon learned I knew nothing at all. I also got a bigger glimpse into Parkinson's Disease and the effects it has on the person who has it, and the people around them.
It's nice to see a celebrity like Michael using his stature to bring awareness, as well as attending senate meetings on behalf of people with Parkinson's, to try for more funding for research. Being so active in the fight is admirable, especially when you see the extents he has taken.
There were some funny moments too. I loved how he shared his family life, from childhood to now, his stories were heartwarming.
Lots of people will enjoy this read, a fan or not. For those not sure, believe me when I tell you that it's more than meets the eye.

I have always liked Michael J. Fox since his days as Alex P Keaton. In this book he shares his life story--the good, the bad and the ugly story. The book talked a lot about his parkinson's disease and what he deals with on a daily basis with this disease. My grandmother had parkinson's and it was interesting to see the disease from his perspective and know what my grandmother felt. He talked about his treatments and how ironically enough, brought him closer to his family and even learned who he really was. MJF also tells stories of his acting days, of his family in Canada, and of his lovely wife and children. It's a very-well written book. I highly recommend this book to anynone--MJF fan or not!

I Usually do not read books at all, but when I passed by the book store in the mall and i saw this book on display, it grabbed my attention immediatly. I bought it and started reading it. I have never been so intrigued by someone elses life before, but I sat through all my classes at school and read the book, I am only 17. Anything I have ever read (which was not much) or any story I have ever heard did not touch me in the way that this book did. Michael takes you through an incredible journey of his life of ups and downs. I learned a lot about life and decision making while reading. Michael did an oustanding job and I wish he would write another book. This one was just to good. His use of details is remarkable no matter what he is talking about. He is a very gifted man in so many ways. If you get a chance to read his book, i urge you to. It will touch you, even if you think their is no way possible. Just give it a try.

I've been a huge MJF fan since 1982 when I was only 8 but I never would have guessed this guy was such a talented story teller. His writing is also way beyond expectations. The appeal of this book, however, isn't his stardom or dealing with PD, but the over all story of his life. It's inspirational and entertaining in many different ways. I believe this book has mass appeal and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good biography or just a good story. I know this is the "Michael" he's willing to show us, but I must say, I have more than just a fan's admiration for him now. He is a tremendously good person who is not only entertaining America, but doing such important work through his foundation. Thank you Michael! I hope more and more success and happieness continues to come you way!

My mom loves it and even though it's the first book she's purchased I'm sure others will enjoy it just as much as she did :-)

I'm been a fan of Mr Fox since Family Ties came on the air. I've purchased 5 of these books giving 4 away as gifts. MJF life is an inspiration for anyone trying to succeed in any endeavor which seems hopeless. Raising money & awareness for Parkinson's Disease no one could of done a better job. BTW part of the proceeds of this book goes into research.

I hope another sitcom comes his way soon. The Michael J. Fox Show needed new writers right from the start, should of gone after the Spin City or 2 & 1/2 Men writers instead.

I liked the way he put flashbacks into the book.
I now understand PD in a whole new light.
A big MJF fan.

Loved hearing about the rise of Michaels career and days on the sets of my favourite tv and movies. But what I most admire, like Patrick Swayze's memoir, is the courage and honesty of how a man deals with the day to day living with a disease. As a cancer survivor myself, I gain inspiration from Michaels battle with PD and his eternal optimism.
