Publisher's Summary

Struck with Parkinson's - a debilitating, degenerative disease - at the height of his fame, Fox has taken what some people might consider cause for depression and turned it into a beacon of hope for millions.

Now, in Always Looking Up, he writes about the personal philosophy that carried him through his darkest hours, and speaks with others who have emerged from difficult periods with optimism to spare. With the humour and wit that dazzled fans and reviewers alike in his bestselling memoir, Lucky Man, Fox shows how he became a happier, more satisfied person by recognising the gifts of everyday life.

Another uplifting read from MJF

After reading Michael's first book, Lucky Man, I was hoping he would write another as I enjoyed it so much. His current work focuses more on his efforts in raising awareness about Parkinson's Disease and funding for PD research than on his personal life. Despite this, we get some wonderful insights into his family life and the joy and strengh he derives from his loved ones. Some readers may find this book controversial in some ways as it puts forward a case for stem cell research and also mentions some other highly-debated issues. Fox deals with these in an open-minded way and readily accepts that there are always legitimate opposing views to his own. As with Lucky Man, there is no self-pity, just gratitude for what he does have rather than bitterness for what he doesn't. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to yet another installment from this wonderful human being!

Disappointing

I hadn't read Michael Fox's first book but I hope it had a bit more substance than his second. There are, as you usually find in these autobiographical pieces, several 'celeb' names dropped in in an effort to beef it up. But in general I found it very mundane and not as interesting as I would have hoped. Maybe it doesn't translate well as an audio book and would be better in print.
