After reading this book you can't help but like this guy. Wonderful.
262 pages. Oversized Paperback.
Jordan's memoir ranges from the civil-rights era south to being the youngest presidential Chief of Staff ever to Jimmy Carter. His struggle with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma is moving.
Best book of many I read on cancer -- it was given to me during my chemo; it made the experience bearable.
He had survived three kinds of cancer by the time he wrote this, including the two I have had.
I really did not like this book.
Former White House chief-of-staff (President Carter) Hamilton Jordan chronicles his memoirs in this cancer survival story. Jordan's life has echoed the collective national experience of his generation on many levels: Vietnam, his youth in the Civil-Rights-era South, and his tumultuous years in Washington, D.C.
Not just once, but three times he has been diagnosed with cancer in its various forms: non-Hodgkins lymphoma, melanoma, and prostate cancer. He fought all of this with a positive attitude and a well-informed mind.
This is an unforgettable read on many fronts: practical advice about coping with cancer, and memorable anecdotes about notable figures of recent American history.
Really good..my Dr. recommended this to me.
I bought it and have never read it; my husband also has a copy so it is still available to me.
