always looking, michael J. fox, parkinson diseaseThis is Michael J. Fox's second book in his first book, "Lucky Man," he announced to the world that he had Parkinson's disease, his reaction to the diagnosis and his choices to deal and live with it. This book is the follow up and more of the same honesty.

After retiring from his leading role in Spin City in 2000, he launched the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. He chose a distinguished Board to become Directors of CEO'S and Exec's, later adding Donna Chalala and Lonnie Ali, the wife of Muhammad. With the help of friends like Alan Alda, Kevin Kline and Diane Sawyer, he had chosen the Board of Twelve who were charged with raising funds for planning and promotion of Parkinson's Research. He appeared on OPRAH, Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos and Larry King to tell his story and inform the public of his Foundation to search for the cure of Parkinson's.

The rest of this book dwells on his family of Tracy, Sam and three daughters along with encounters with dissenters like Rush Limbaugh. These were reminders of ways Michael chose to cope with PD, as keeping his optimism, adjusting to medication and the physical changes.
