Thought for the Day

Men should lead selfless lives. This may seem difficult. But, in reality, there is nothing easier than this. It is selfishness that creates all kinds of difficulties for man. Selfless love gives no room for any evil. Selfless love may meet with opposition from one's kith and kin and from worldly persons. But one should not be deterred by such opposition. Love should be cherished as one's life breath. Make love the basis for all your actions. The love of God should be free from any desire for favourson.- Baba

Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist

This is Michael J Fox's second book...his first being Lucky Man: A Memoir, in 2002 he announced to the world that he had Parkinson's disease and detailed what it was like living with and raising awareness for this currently incurable disease. 2009 he releases is second book, ALWAYS LOOKING UP.

Once again, the eighties icon turns a debilitating and degenerative disease and offers a ray of hope for people who might otherwise find depression. ALWAYS LOOKING UP blends many elements into a heart-warming and optimistic memoir that will bring hope, humor, and awareness to millions of people.

I say memoir because much of the book is from his own personal experiences and how he shed light on those dark times. He speaks of how Parkinson had strengthened his "family ties" Okay, I'm not as funny as Michael J Fox, but he doesn't think he would have the strong, close knit family he has if it wasn't tested by Parkinson's.

ALWAYS LOOKING UP, is the perfect name for this book, the man, and everything he has done to help raise awareness for this incurable disease...whether it's a guest appearance, a heartfelt memoir, or through his foundation: The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, ALWAYS LOOKING UP is about optimism and making choices and finding a cure.

And if you missed Michael J Fox's first book Lucky Man: A Memoir I would highly recommend reading it. courtesy - Toby Kenzington

In these pages you will find bold and specific ideas about how to fix our ailing economy and strengthen the middle class, make health care affordable for all, achieve energy independence, and keep America safe in a dangerous world.
