Description

Surviving non-Hodgkins lymphoma, melanoma, and prostate cancer, former White House chief-of-staff Hamilton Jordan shares his personal and political reflections--from his experiences with the Civil Rights movement to his civilian volunteer tour in Vietnam, from his years of scrutiny under the Carter administration to his agonizing, yet triumphant times battling cancer. Quickly motivated to accept cancer as a fact in his life, Jordan deals with the stages of the disease, "Denial? Deny what? I've got a mass in my chest the size of an apple ... Angry? At whom? I have lived a great life and have been blessed with much more than I deserve ... 'Why me?' but 'Why not me?' ... Bargaining with God? The God that I believe in has all the cards ..." Serving as an inspiration to others, Jordan stresses the importance of becoming proactive and maintaining a positive attitude in the face of a terminal disease. The warm voice of narrator Tom Stechschulte gives us an intimate portrait of this tireless public servant and crusader.

Professional reviews

"This book, written by the former Carter Administration insider, tells the story of the author's bouts with cancer and is interspersed with tidbits about his upbringing and his government experiences. It's a short work, but it packs emotional punch. Tom Stechschulte narrates the book with authority and clarity. He reads with passion when called for and relates Jordan's life experiences in an even, confident tone. Stechschulte creates vivid characters from Jordan's past, including an assortment of Southerners ranging from his uncle to Jimmy Carter. He also gets to do some singing, and he can certainly carry a tune. What Stechschulte does best though is to give us a sense of Jordan's urgency once he's diagnosed with cancer. He speaks well for Jordan and shows us his will to live. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
