Summary Brokaw received shocking news: He had multiple myeloma, a treatable but incurable blood cancer. Friends had always referred to Brokaw's lucky star, but as he writes in this inspiring memoir, Turns out that star has a dimmer switch. Brokaw takes us through all the seasons and stages of this surprising year, the emotions, discoveries, setbacks, and struggles at times of denial, acceptance, turning points, and courage. After his diagnosis, Brokaw began to keep a journal, approaching this new stage of his life in a familiar role: as a journalist, determined to learn as much as he could about his condition, to report the story, and help others facing similar battles. That journal became the basis of this wonderfully written memoir, the story of a man coming to terms with his own mortality, contemplating what means the most to him now, and reflecting on what has meant the most to him throughout his life.
