Always Looking Up is a memoir of Michael's past decade, told through the critical themes of his life: work, politics, faith, and family. The book is a journey of self-discovery and reinvention, and a testament to the consolations that protect him from the ravages of Parkinson's.
With the humor and wit that captivated fans in his first book, Lucky Man, Michael describes how he became a happier, more satisfied person by recognizing the gifts of everyday life.

Great listen and very inspirational.
I found listening to Michael J Fox read his book very easy and enjoyable. His use of the language makes him give better insight to his story. I found this book to be very motivational because of what he deals with on a daily basis, and what he gets done in spite of it; just makes one realize that if a man suffering with P.D. can do all this and still be such an optimist, surely I can do more and enjoy more.

Getting to know a friend
When I read the first book by MJF, it was a good effort and I appreciated his honesty, but I was so disappointed in him as a person having grown up watching him on my favorite shows. I felt I needed to read/listen to this second one in the hope that some personal development would be evident and I was not disappointed. It was especially nice to have it read by Michael himself despite some small language difficulties caused by his condition, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I'm now happily off the listen to the third book.
