Book Review
The same sharp intelligence and self-deprecating wit that made Michael J. Fox a star in the Family Ties TV series and Back to the Future make this a lot punchier than the usual up-from-illness celebrity memoir. Yes, he begins with the first symptoms of Parkinson's disease, the incurable illness that led to his retirement from Spin City (and acting) in 2000. And yes, he assures us he is a better, happier person now than he was before he was diagnosed. In Fox's case, you actually might believe it, because he then cheerfully exposes the insecurities and self-indulgences of his pre-Parkinson's life in a manner that makes them not glamorous but wincingly ordinary and of course very funny. ("As for the question, 'Does it bother you that maybe she just wants to sleep with you because you're a celebrity?' My answer to that...

Book Description
Growing up in Canada, Mike Fox dreamed of playing hockey—or being a writer, or a musician—anything that wasn’t nine to five. Somewhere along the line, Michael realized he was too short to play hockey, and what he was really good at was being funny. By the age of 15, Michael’s dreams had changed to acting.

And he refuses to offer...
