'A profoundly human book that touches readers with a rare and healing candor'
This is the story of an award-winning psychiatrist and neuroscientist who was diagnosed with a brain tumour by his own MRI machine at the age of thirty. It is the story of a doctor turned patient who, after overcoming cancer against the odds, started a twenty-year crusade to inform people about the disease and inspire them to take responsibility for their health. It is the story of a husband and father who is told that the cancer has returned, and that he only has a short time left. This is a story about dying. But most of all, it is a story about living. 'A staggering manual for living' Paris Match 'Each word rings true, each memory lingers, each detail of his life, now in limbo, brings us closer to the human condition. This book is a gift' Elle
