While reading the book, I could definitely relate to the author. A Type A business professional who is told that he might not live much longer certainly has to humble himself and get a new purpose. I'm glad that Koop was able to undergo that type of self-assessment that makes him a fighter instead of a victim. It was good, too, that he found someone to share his life with, because that's certainly an incentive to keep living.

It was a joy to attain a signed copy of David's book at an author event. Despite the title, this is a delightful book to read. It will encourage anyone to strive harder and never loose sight of their goals. Once begun, I could not wait to see how his life developed. David's life was hard from the start after loosing contact with his mother at age five. He tells of his life growing up, achieving success in the business world, gaining and losing love, and fighting cancer through short vignettes that make you feel as though he were sitting in your living room telling you the story while sipping warm cider in front of the fireplace. Although his story tells of some very difficult challenges in his life, he presents all without regret. Gratitude and joy weave through the book. He even manages to tell the dreadful story of cancer treatments with a sprinkling of humor. There are short quips of sage advice interspersed throughout the book. Cancer, It's a Good Thing I Got It is an easy read, which is well worth your time and will leave your heart uplifted and encouraged.
