Always Looking Up By Michael J. Fox

Part of today’s Kindle ebook deals is Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist, an autobiography by actor Michael J. Fox for only $1.99 (that’s a 88% discount!). The book also comes in paperback and hardcover.

The actor, who began his career on TV’s Family Ties, went on to star in the wildly popular Back To The Future film trilogy, as well as several other 80s comedies like Teen Wolf and The Secret To My Success, before returning to TV with Spin City. At 30 years old, Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, which changed the course of his life. In this book, Fox talks about what has become of his life and career in the last decade after leaving Spin City.

From the product page:

The last ten years, which is really the stuff of this book, began with such a loss: my retirement from Spin City. I found myself struggling with a strange new dynamic: the shifting of public and private personas. I had been Mike the actor, then Mike the actor with PD. Now was I just Mike with PD Parkinson’s had consumed my career and, in a sense, had become my career. But where did all of this leave Me? I had to build a new life when I was already pretty happy with the old one..

Always Looking Up is a memoir of this last decade, told through the critical themes of Michael’s life: work, politics, faith, and family. The book is a journey of self-discovery and reinvention, and a testament to the consolations that protect him from the ravages of Parkinson’s.

In Fox’s previous memoir, Lucky Man, he talks about his early career leading up to his diagnosis.
