This book is beyond AMAZING! It is one of those books that I find is a must read, to show that even my bad days aren't really so bad after all. Michael Antcliffe handles his impending death with humor,a positive attitude, composure, and an unimaginable grace. There is something to be said for not only talking about making the most of one's life, but doing it. Michael did this until the very end. Down to the last few pages in the book, with a picture of him in his Muppet shirt, he had a way of making you smile. There aren't many more intimate events in one's life than their death. I have much respect that he opened up to strangers who became friends and family. Through Facebook, you hear other people's stories and how Michael touched their lives. He included quite a few pictures throughout the book, which I really enjoyed! This was a heartbreaking, yet uplifting story through Michael's character. This isn't a book that will leave me anytime soon.
