A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Future…

Twists and Turns and Lessons Learned
– Michael J. Fox


Here’s a short review for a small book.

This book makes an excellent gift for the graduate in your life.  Just be sure to get a copy for yourself, as well.  It’s sort of a mini-memoir, filled with fun stories, observations, and wisdom learned in the school of life.
As one who dropped out of school to pursue an acting career, Michael received most of his education through real-world experience.  In these pages, we get some unique lessons in Economics, Comparative Literature, Physics, Political Science, and Geography.

As I was reading, every line went through my head in Mr. Fox’s voice, with his impeccable comedic timing.  I laughed out loud… a lot.  The story of when he was working simultaneously on “Family Ties,” and the first “Back To The Future” movie was one of my favorites.  Of course, there is also discussion of his diagnosis of Parkinson Disease.
This isn’t just a fun book, it’s filled with genuine insights and principles that, I believe, can enhance your life.

A relatively quick read.  Totally entertaining and informative.

“As for my own truncated secondary education, my head was in the clouds as my mom would say, or if you asked my father, up my ass.”
