"Wise and discerning . . . . Full of hope." M. Scott Peck, M.D., author of "The Road Less Traveled."
For everyone faced with unforeseen disaster, this book -- written while its author struggled with bone cancer -- can be the best of allies. With rock-bottom honesty, Carmody writes about the power of thinking, feeling, sharing, deciding, and praying, and of the joy that comes from fighting the good fight. Stocked full of everyday wisdom to help us make sense of a crisis and work through it, this just may be the most important book you'll ever read.
