No time like the future : an optimist considers mortality

Fox, Michael J., 1961-2021
The entire world knows Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, the teenage sidekick of Doc Brown in 'Back to the Future'; as Alex P. Keaton in 'Family Ties'; and through numerous other movie roles and guest appearances on shows such as 'The Good Wife'. Diagnosed at age 29, Michael is equally engaged in Parkinson's advocacy work, raising global awareness of the disease and helping find a cure through The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, the world's leading non-profit funder of PD science. His two previous memoirs, 'Lucky Man' and 'Always Looking Up', dealt with how he came to terms with the illness, all the while exhibiting his iconic optimism. In 'No Time Like the Future', Michael shares personal stories and observations about illness and health, ageing, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect the way we approach mortality.
