Don't bother. Spend your time reading an actual book rather than this glorified rag.
I admire his honesty about his feelings and actions and the way he expressed how, on reflection, he handled different aspects of his life. I also loved the descriptions of the landscape and lakes of Leitrim, Fermanagh and Westmeath - it makes me want to revisit them again.
Well done Michael,

"A Memoir of Love (? his self love), Melancholy (felling sorry for himself...grow up!) and as to where the Magical Thinking" came in....beats me. The guy is a total narcissist.
Not worth the time spent to do a proper review
We learn only about the author himself nothing about his wife and family and actually very little about his battle to overcome this disease
Staring at the walls is a better title or staying in bed
