My husband read this book in an afternoon, sitting at the library. He told me that the book made him laugh out loud, and then made him cry. Schimmel is one of his favorite comedians... and wanted to read the book, to preview it, thinking we would get it for his mom, a cancer survivor. I read it this evening, and it immediately became a favorite. I laughed long and hard, and appreciated every word...because they were his. It's his story, told his way, and it's a beautiful one. It's honest, raw, hilarious and moving. It's an inspiration.
