Martin D'Amore and his wife are both physicians, so when they began to notice possible ALS symptoms in Marty, they desperately looked for other causes. But after many tests and meetings with experts, Marty finally got the word, he had Lou Gehrig's disease, and the clock began to tick.
ALS robs its victims of their physical abilities, from their muscular activity, to their nervous system, and, finally, their ability to even breathe. All the while, the mind remains intact. It is a brutal, often soul-crushing disease, and yet Marty has persevered and even grown as a result of ALS. Discover how Marty's battle with ALS has led him to a greater relationship with Christ, a better understanding of himself, and, finally, to great contentment and happiness.
Whether or not you or someone you love is battling ALS, this inspiring true story of love and courage will help you find joy through your sufferings.

Inspiring, Motivating, and Sad
It ranks very high as it demonstrates man's will to succeed in the hardest of circumstances.
Marty, of course, was the reason this book came alive and the key intent of appreciating everything we have in this world was achieved through its pervading premise.
Narration was great. It really did feel like Marty was speaking to me by casting his true inner voice.
I wanted to finish it in one setting, but wanted to grasp the full affect that ALS had on the main character through various sittings.
