Michael J. Fox begins his memoir by talking about the first signs of what he would discover to be Parkinson's disease. In a direct, conversational style Fox gives listeners a glimpse of his heady Hollywood life, starting with his early success of "Family Ties" and Back to the Future. The self-indulgent days as a young star through his denial and hiding of his illness to his final acceptance and then advocacy for Parkinson's sufferers make a fascinating story. His narrative and sentiment are heartfelt, although Fox does read rather than tell the story, and occasionally rushes. His emotional energy emerges best when he reflects on the support from his wife and family. R.F.W. 2003 Audie Award Winner (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
