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.

The type of book that everyone should take the time to read as it should help most put life into perspective. Dr. Lipsenthal ironically practiced later in his career preventive medicine only to be stricken by cancer in his early 50's.His ideas surrounding life and dying at times seem a little out there primarily when he explores possible past lives and spiritualistic encounters. However his main theme, that to reflect on gratitude to what we have had in life is as important a message as anyone could could receive from him. Most of of will face the reality of our demise at some point and so the message is universal, enjoy what you have and have had and face the future with as much inspiration as we can as we approach the unknown.

The topic of this book is a tough one to read about. The big "C" word, whether it deals with breast cancer, lung cancer, or any other type of cancer is scary. It is scary to the person who has just heard the diagnosis and it is scary to their friends and family. It is not an unfamiliar word in my family. As a matter of fact this book is on its way to my sister. She was first diagnosed with cancer at the age of 19. After surgery and radiation she was clear of cancer for 20 years. Eight years ago she was diagnosed with lung cancer. It is slowly moving throughout her body. Her outlook is like Lee's. Instead of focusing on death, she has chosen to focus on life and living it to her fullest. She is enjoying time with he grand kids and daughter. Like Lee she prays and meditates daily. I enjoyed reading his philosophy although some aspects of it differ from mine. He said, "many religions use meditation and some just call it prayer. Some say prayer is talking to God or the universe and meditation is listening to the answer'. (page 50). I believe some people will feel threatened by his belief system. He doesn't knock any ones religious beliefs. He actually encourages people to pray and meditate. As a Christian I can tell you that I feel out of balance if I don't start my day with prayer and meditation. No matter what your religious beliefs Lee is right about several things. First we should acknowledge that bad things happen to good people, just like good things happen to them. Second, we should create a life that is full of love and laughter. We should never put ourselves into a box of our own making. When my father was alive my mom would come to him with a problem. He would handle it. She often told him that it drove her nuts that he didn't seem to worry or care about the situation. His reply was always the same, "I care about it and I'll handle it, but worrying about it won't change it one bit. So at this point in time I "choose" not to worry about it because worry won't add anything to my life, but it can take so much away.I think the overall message of this book is to live life to the fullest no matter what the situation.

Quick read. Reminds us all to enjoy life because you never know when it will all end. There were some parts of the book that I just didn't quite get but maybe thats just me. All in all a good read.
