A Lucky Life Interrupted: A Memoir of Hope by Tom Brokaw is a thought provoking, and tender book. I have always admired Tom Brokaw for his honest and unbiased ways and this book goes into his personal life and shows what a truly wonderful and strong character he is. A powerful message, esp to those of us that battle against problems. Maybe not cancer but other problems too that are life changing and dramatic. He gives a hope and encouragement with his calm and soothing manner. I got this book from the library and got the audio version. ( )

A Lucky Life Interrupted, a memoir of Hope by Tom Brokaw
Have followed this news journal reporter for many years and like how he tells the news and his stories.
Follows his story of his life, back pain and his medical conditions. Love how he started the journal and love the little things that kept him going. so good to laugh.
So many have crossed his path and he tells you of them and his treatment plan along with all his travel and awards he earned.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )
