Quickly motivated to accept cancer as a fact in his life, Jordan deals with the stages of the disease, "Denial? Deny what? I've got a mass in my chest the size of an apple ... Angry? At whom? I have lived a great life and have been blessed with much more than I deserve ... 'Why me?' but 'Why not me?' ... Bargaining with God? The God that I believe in has all the cards ..." Serving as an inspiration to others, Jordan stresses the importance of becoming proactive and maintaining a positive attitude in the face of a terminal disease. The warm voice of narrator Tom Stechschulte gives us an intimate portrait of this tireless public servant and crusader.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Political reflections mingle with cancer war stories in this memoir by former presidential aide Jordan…he emphasizes his belief that his treatments were successful because he took responsibility for his medical care. But he also reflects on his life more generally…this book is a quirky, feisty addition to the growing stack of memoirs by late-20th-century presidential aides.” Publishers Weekly
