This book is a culmination of what I’ve learned. I hope it will open the door for you to embrace your humanity, accept uncertainty, and live a life of gratitude. -from Enjoy Every Sandwich
As medical director of the famed Preventive Medicine Research Institute, Lee Lipsenthal helped thousands of patients struggling with disease to overcome their fears of pain and death and to embrace a more joyful way of living. In his own life, happily married and the proud father of two remarkable children, Lee was similarly committed to living his life fully and gratefully each day.
The power of those beliefs was tested in July 2009, when Lee was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. As Lee and his wife, Kathy, navigated his diagnosis, illness, and treatment, he discovered that he did not fear death, and that even as he was facing his own mortality, he felt more fully alive than ever before. In the bestselling tradition of Tuesdays with Morrie, told with humor and heart, and deeply inspiring, Enjoy Every Sandwich distills everything Lee learned about how we find meaning, purpose, and peace in our lives.

"Often, patients given a terminal diagnosis reach a surprising, transforming conclusion--you have to be ready to die to embrace being alive. But Lee Lipsenthal tells his story with such intimacy and humanity that this paradoxical fact can be accessed even by those who have not (yet) leaned out over the abyss. To deny death is to deny life. Read Enjoy Every Sandwich to know why." (Andrew Weil, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Healthy Aging and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health)

It contains the profound wisdom derived from the greatest teacher, our mortality. So read on and learn how to spend your life's precious time with more love and less fear."

Loved the book...LOVE the Audiobook, too!
Life Altering 'Meal!'
At the very top of my list!
Dr. Lipsenthal was overwhelmingly real in how he told his story, no inflated ego or exaggerated drama, simply human responses exposed in the brightest of lights.
The emotions heard through their voices lend a sense of intimacy that written words alone could not possibly express.
Enjoy Every Sandwich...the meal of a lifetime!
I will listen to this book over and over again because of the value of Dr. Lipsenthal's message is not to be experienced once and then forgotten; it must become a part of my own journey.
