Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist - Michael J. Fox Enjoyed it. A fast read. I don't normally read many memoir types, but as a nurse, I find his story of living with a potentially debilitating illness impressive. He divides the book into subject areas of politics, faith and family, which means the story is not focused on an overall evolution. In some ways, it makes it less coherent of a narrative, but he can tell his story any way he likes. It was also interesting to get his person insight into some of the national issues he got involved with, specifically Rush's accusation of faking. His kids sound amazing as well, and I enjoyed the small bits of their lives that he shared.
