Lucky Man: A Memoir

Front Cover
Bantam, 2003 - Actors - 323 pages
"The ten years since my diagnosis have been the best ten years of my life and I consider myself a lucky man' - Michael J Fox When Michael J. Fox announced to the world that he had Parkinson's disease, a degenerative neurological condition, he had been secretly fighting it for almost ten years. By the time the public started grieving for him, he had stopped grieving for himself. Far from being bitter about being forced into retirement at the height of his career, he considers himself a lucky man. With the same energy, passion and humour he invests in his performances, Fox recounts the incredible story of his life-changing experiences - and what Parkinson's has given him- the chance to appreciate a wonderful life and career, his family, and the opportunity to help find a cure."
