A Lucky Life Interrupted- Tom Brokaw (2015) 


News anchor Tom Brokaw’s memoir is specifically related to his experience with Multiple Myeloma, rather than a memoir of his experience as a journalist. Browse acknowledges his privilege and financial success as a contributing factor to his ability to beat the deadly cancer. I found the book to be fine, but it felt a bit like listening to someone recount their own strength and ability to solve all issues, without complaint, and it is a bit hard to believe. He speaks of his athleticism and high pain tolerance, which is good, but it feels like he is glossing over the truth of his situation. 256 pages
