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

Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
