a council ofCouncil of These friends represent the different parts of his self so that they can be his voice should Iron Cross it be needed The book started off really well giving background story about a legnjury when he was 5 years old how he and his wife met the twins birth his diagnosis Feiler even explores family history eg listening to the audio tapes his grandfather recorded Zachary's Virgin in the 12 years leading up to his suiciden 1983 tapes which the author had heretofore avoided He even adds periodic letters to his family and friends over the year of his treatment chronicling his experience and the effect on him and his family Up until about one third way to one half way point Pfaueninsel it was all verynteresting and the author s honesty and humor were endearingEven when he began ntroducing his Council I enjoyed t But a couple of things bothered me First because of the way he Torah With Ramban's Commentary Translated, Annotated, And Elucidated: Devarim/Deuteronomy (Artscroll) interweaves story about what was currently going onn terms of his treatment history letters to his family and friends and ntroducing his Council we don t meet the last guy until he s already all the way through his treatment and been given the all clear That timing was off putting for me Second by the middle of the book the writing style started to feel a little too Mitch Albom for me kind of sappy and offering cliche life lessons There was also a feeling of unreality to the book n that Feiler was not your average Joe who got cancer and his friends were not average either one has multiple Emmys one offered commentary alongside Bob Costas at the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics all but one has traveled the world extensively etc Let me be clear I am n no way trying to minimize what the author went through t was horrific However when I got the book I was hoping to read about how someone like me would struggle with such a diagnosis Not that there s not struggle n this book there s very clea. Bestselling author Bruce Feiler was a young father when he was diagnosed with cancer He nstantly worried what his daughters' lives would be like without him Three days later he came up with a stirring Time Capsule idea to reach out to six men from all the passagesn his life and ask them to be present Hot Under the Collar in the passagesn his daughters' lives And he would call this group Rly physical struggle through chemotherapy and surgery then chemo and physical therapy there Horses is struggle with fears and struggle with trying to protect a family from the chaos that surrounds potentially terminalllness But there were many ways Goblin King in which Feiler did not have to struggle He was very well connected and was able to see the best doctorn the country for his cancer Money was not an The Luthier's Apprentice issue for him and his family he was able to devote his time and energy to fighting his disease for a year without having to worry about losing the house I would have rather read the story of some ordinary guy who never wrote a book before or at least someone who doesn t have his own Wikipedia page who doesn t have an extensive and well connected support system for whom moneys an Factories in the Field: The Story of Migratory Farm Labor in California issue and whosn t always able to keep his sense of humor e someone I could relate to someone realAll n all this Villa Mendl: Leben und Schicksal der Ankerbrot-Erbin Bettina Mendl is a good book I likedt but t was not amazing to me I recognize that most of my criticisms of t tell about me as much as about the book so I recommend you read Schlechter Sex 2 it *and make your own You may findt New Jewish Voices: Plays Produced by the Jewish Repertory Theatre inspiring I got this book and enjoyedt I *make your own decision You may t nspiring I got this book and enjoyed The Disability Studies Reader it I seen the story on Oprah or some news program and thoughtt sounded Sword and Sorceress 24 interesting though very sad The father was sick with a rare form of cancer andn the event he died he wanted to have 6 men who could together represent different aspects of his character or personality and advise his daughters I thought t was well written and very touching I especially enjoyed the letters he wrote updating his council of dads throughout the year during his treatment However the book seemed to skip around going from one memory to another how one dad was chosen to the next and I found t a little disjointed I think I would have enjoyed t f The Riptide Ultra-Glide it had skipped around less Overall I would recommendt to people who are looking for an Die Sanduhr interesting book and a greatdea whether the parent Mardi Gras is sic Beautiful and emotional read I highly recommendt especially Ghetto if you are a parent expecting parent or thinking aboutt Bruce Feiler learns he has cancer and he and his publisher come up with an dea for a book He s worried about the lack of a father figure n his daughter s lives f he dies He reaches out to six men who know him best to ask them to step That Yankee Cat: The Maine Coon in for himn some way He goes back and forth between describing his friendship with these men and relating the events of the ensuing year his struggle with the disease and the effects on his familyThis book s stirring heart warming nspiring moving etc I can see this book as being helpful and meaningful to some people but I am old I ve read too many of these Wednesday with Morrie type things about wise perfect people and their courageous struggles and their supportive perfect friends and family There are too many other books out there that I d rather read I like them real andor down and dirty and Ghost Stories of Washington imaginati.
