Editorial Reviews

Review

“It’s impossible not to be inspired by Brokaw’s story, and his willingness to share it.”Los Angeles Times
 
“A powerful memoir of battling cancer and facing mortality . . . Through the prism of his own illness, Brokaw looks at the larger picture of aging in America.”Booklist (starred review)
 
“Moving, informative and deeply personal.”—The Daily Beast
 
“The former NBC News anchor has applied the fact-finding skills and straightforward candor that were his stock in trade during his reporting days to A Lucky Life Interrupted.”USA Today

“Brokaw doesn’t paste a smiley face on his story. Again and again, the book returns to stories of loss but also of grace, luck and the beauty of having another swing at bat.”The Washington Post
 
“Engaging . . . [with] the kind of insight that is typical of Mr. Brokaw’s approach to life and now to illness.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“Powerful and courageous . . . [Brokaw] looks ahead to the future with hope.”Bookreporter
 
“Wryly good-natured . . . a wise and oddly comforting look at the toughest news of all.”Kirkus Reviews
