Books for a Better Life: Enjoy Every Sandwhich

  • Jun 7, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • The Finch Residence

We think most people are looking for a better life- People are looking to evolve. They are want to grow and improve, widen their horizons and gain a larger perspective on life. So when we discovered "Books for a Better Life Awards"- we wanted to learn more. Since its inception in 1996, Books for a Better Life has honored more than 600 authors and has raised more than $1.9 million to speed progress toward achieving a world free of Multiple Sclerosis.

 

The Awards recognize self-improvement authors whose messages are aligned with the chapter’s mission of inspiring people to live their best lives.


We definitely would like to live "our best lives"- so we have decided to read the 2011 Books for a Better Life this year.

May's Selection:

Enjoy Every Sandwich by Lee Lipsenthal, M.D. (The Crown Publishing Group)

This book is a culmination of what I’ve learned. I hope it will open the door for you to embrace your humanity, accept uncertainty, and live a life of gratitude. —from Enjoy Every Sandwich

As medical director of the famed Preventive Medicine Research Institute, Lee Lipsenthal helped thousands of patients struggling with disease to overcome their fears of pain and death and to embrace a more joyful way of living. In his own life, happily married and the proud father of two remarkable children, Lee was similarly committed to living his life fully and gratefully each day.

The power of those beliefs was tested in July 2009, when Lee was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. As Lee and his wife, Kathy, navigated his diagnosis, illness, and treatment, he discovered that he did not fear death, and that even as he was facing his own mortality, he felt more fully alive than ever before. In the bestselling tradition of Tuesdays with Morrie, told with humor and heart, and deeply inspiring, Enjoy Every Sandwich distills everything Lee learned about how we find meaning, purpose, and peace in our lives.
