I read it very quickly. It is an easy read and I found myself quite absorbed with the bits I found interesting and easily skipping over those which I didn't.
I have to say, that despite desperately wanting to be able to highly recommend this book, I can't go that far. I admire Montel for facing his condition and publicly opening up his heart and putting this into the public domain. His experience of MS and mine aren't the same and I guess every person diagnosed with the condition will understand and expect this.
Montel acknowledges how difficult he must have been to live with while coming to terms with his diagnosis and symptoms, and I found this quite enlightening. He discusses his symptoms and depression in depth and seems to have explored every alternative and holistic treatment. His use of food supplements and vitamins seems excessive, although good luck to him in this respect.
Montel is dealing with MS within the constraints of the US healthcare system, and of course this differs quite considerably from our NHS healthcare here in the UK. He makes an enormous fuss about injecting himself once a day, a proceedure that myself and a lot of my friends have easily adapted to without a problem. This does make me wonder how much of a wimp he actually is when he talks about continuous pain (sorry Montel if you are reading this!).
My impression of Montel from his tv show (ok, it is rather vague not having been a regular viewer) was of a calm and sensible person. In the book he portrays a rather manic personality. Before his illness he obviously put a lot of energy into physical fitness and remains an extremely ambititious personality.Read more ›
