Lucky Man: A Memoir by Michael J. Fox
Michael J. Fox has a reputation for being young, smart, witty, and energetic. Ten years ago, when his little finger started trembling uncontrollably whilst on location, he suspected something might be up. Shortly after he was diagnosed as having Parkinson's Disease. For almost ten years he kept it a secret, depending on drugs to get him through his working day (incredibly earning some of his best notices ever for his hit sitcom Spin City). He has now been forced to retire, despite only being in his thirties. Yet he regrets nothing. Incredibly, he considers himself a lucky man. Lucky Man is the amazing story of his life-changing experiences. Both moving and very funny, it is mercifully free of schmaltz. A remarkable book.
