I tend to be quite critical and harsh when it comes to book reviews. But, I have to say that I adored this book. Maybe it is because I have ms and that this is the first ms-related book I have read (or listened to). But, I was simply unable to stop listening until the book was over. I enjoyed seeing how someone else with ms lived and dealt with situations that I have dealt with or that I will perhaps deal with in the future (even if ms is a very variable disease that affects everyone differently and even if the way I would react to a similar situation might be completely different)
If you have ms, another chronic illness or if you simply enjoy a book that can give one perspective on life (and how lucky someone who has their health truly is) or even if you enjoy biographies I do recommend this book.

As a sufferer myself with MS for ten years, I heartily endorse Richard's view of his journey with the disease - and his attitude with having the array of difficult to descibe symptoms. I used to say, "God is a Jokester to people with Multiple Sclerosis - Sometimes sHe will say " Let's give the patient, oh, I don't know... Urinary incontenence... or maybe some double vision..." Most of all, I loved how Richard described the incipient, almost imperceptible changes in cognition that MS sufferers endure silently. The dream he has at the very end of the book is classic - I have had that very same dream many many times -- I dare say that every MS sufferer has been bestowed that same vision from time to time.
