I was really impressed with this book. It is very informative and really tells you in detail what this man went through during his journey to getting a liver transplant.

I wasn't sure how good the book would be, or if there would be so many medical terms I would need to look up that I would lose interest. This was not the case when he gave a diagnosis or procedure that was needed he explained it so you knew what he was talking about.

I like the fact he was down to earth and told the true way he was feeling and let you know it wasn't all bad or all good. He was very open about his feelings.

I feel this would be a very good book for anyone going through a liver transplant as it lets you know it is normal to have negative thoughts about what you are going through. It also shows you that there are good days and how important is is to try to keep your mind and body working as well as possible and to not give up.

He had some bad things happen during the time he was sick but just kept pushing forward even when he felt like giving up. The thought that no matter how bad things are for you someone has it worse kept coming to mind.

I learned alot about live donors and the ability of the liver to grow back in a very short time. I knew it would grow back but how quickly it does so was really surprising. There was alot of information on the reason for a liver transplant and the availability of a liver when it was needed. I also learned about how they decide who gets a liver and when.

I would rate this book a 4 out of 4 and highly recommend it as it is very informative and entertaining at the same time. It is hard to put down because you want to see what will happen next.
