First, this is a true story & a good read. (Trust me, you'll be in good authorial hands.) While it's about mortality and impending loss, it's also warm and life-affirming. Russ Woody is a good writer and his book HEROIC HEART moved me deeply. It also made me smile, and laugh at times. Written with wit, honesty and poignancy, it's a tale of the deepening love between an elderly father and adult son who become remarkably closer as they face the elder's diagnosis of ALS and inevitable death. How the son helps his Dad make the most of the limited time he has left is an emotional ride that is at times heartbreaking but at other times unexpectedly joyful and laugh-out-loud funny. (It's also about two young boys getting to know and love their Grandpa.) By the end, you will love and appreciate the old fellow too. And grieve a little. BUT IT'S NOT A BUMMER. NOT AT ALL. Russ Woody is a successful television comedy writer and this story's quite funny at times, and some of it happens in the world of show business. (By the way, if you like Ted Danson already, you will LOVE him after you read this.) Saying this book is a touching tribute to love & the human spirit is way too corny, I know. So let me just say, Russ Woody honestly shared a really real human experience with me and I'm glad to have had it Chip Keyes --Amazon Book Review
