This book -- which I could not put down -- is a beautifully narrated tale of what it's like to live with chronic illness. Jon's descriptive abilities are quite marvelous. But as a person with a chronic illness who represents people with chronic illness, I think this book should be required reading -- not just for patients, but for their families, as well. The lesson of embracing the uncertainty inherent in chronic illness is so important. But Jon tells it in a very lovely, loving way, that doesn't hit you over the head with advice, but which leads by example. Jon's candor and willingness to share the intimate details of a harrowing time in his life is exemplary. I'm very grateful to Jon for writing this.
