A wonderful and enjoyable memoir of Michael Fox’s life up to 2001, when Michael turned 40 (born on 9 June 1961). The “lucky man” reference is explained within the first 7 pages. In November 1990 when he was only 29 Michael first noticed the twitching that was diagnosed as Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease a year later.
Be prepared for a story of horror and violence if you plan to read this book. Well written and easily readable, it chronicles the first 27 years of Jelena Dokic’s life.
