No Time Like the Future by Michael J Fox
Another memoir by Fox only this time it is his very real struggle with continuing health frustrations. “No Time Like the Future,” contains the usual fun anecdotes about his life and inspiring stories about how he learns to handle increasing difficulties with his health, and his determination to continue to contribute through his career and philanthropy.
The book is also somewhat of a departure from his trademark optimism. He is finally overwhelmed by a series of unmerciful falls, surgeries, and injuries. On top of his ongoing battle with Parkinson’s Disease. As he bares his mental and emotional struggles, I want to alternately berate him for his self-pity, and cheer him on to once again adapt and overcome. He does not disappoint.
A bit challenging to listen to as Fox reads it himself. And his diction is a bit rushed and slurred in many instances no doubt due to his Parkinson’s. But that would not be a hindrance in reading the print version. Overall, other than that, I enjoyed the book.
I listened to No Time Like the Future on Audible. This is not a paid review, nor did I receive this book for free.
