Doug recalls: "Lee Lipsenthal was a dear friend and beloved doctor, who healed with his heart as well as his head. This story of his diagnosis with terminal cancer and his adventures on the edge of death has been life changing for me and so many others. This book is like the Last Lecture, but written by a doctor who understood the body and the soul profoundly. Tina Constable, Sydny Miner, and the team at Crown Archetype could not have been more wonderful in supporting this book and Lee even as he left us. I couldn’t have been happier when this book won for Best Inspirational Memoir, in the 2012 Books for a Better Life Awards. His wife Kathy traveled to New York City and accepted the honor on his behalf and I know Lee was looking on proudly."
