Michael J. Fox abandoned high school to pursue an acting
career, but went on to receive honorary degrees from several
universities and garner the highest accolades for his
acting, as well as for his writing. In his new book, he
inspires and motivates graduates to recognize opportunities,
maximize their abilities, and roll with the punches—all with
his trademark optimism, warmth, and humor.
Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future, Michael
draws on his own life experiences to make a case that real
learning happens when "life goes skidding sideways." He
writes of coming to Los Angeles from Canada at age eighteen
and attempting to make his way as an actor. Fox offers up a
comically skewed take on how, in his own way, he fulfilled
the requirements of a college syllabus. He learned Economics
as a starving artist; an unexpected turn as a neophyte
activist schooled him in Political Science; and his approach
to Comparative Literature involved stacking books up against
their movie versions.
Replete with personal stories
and hilarious anecdotes, Michael J. Fox's new book is the
perfect gift for graduates.
