Book Review: Enjoy Every Sandwich


About the book:
Be grateful for something every day, and remember to live fully, love well, and enjoy every moment.

Dr. Lee Lipsenthal worked with Dr. Dean Ornish at the famed Preventive Medicine Research Institute. As medical director of the Institute, he helped thousands of patients to overcome their fear of pain and death and to embrace living life with joy every day. In his own life, happily married and the proud father of two remarkable children, Lee was similarly committed to living life fully and gratefully each day.

The power of these beliefs was tested in July 2009, when Lee was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. As Lee and his wife, Kathy, navigated his illness and treatment over the past two years, Lee discovered that he did not fear death. Instead of fearing the future, he took the time to practice gratitude, connect with his loved ones, and make every attempt to live a full life with each breath. Enjoy Every Sandwich is Lee’s lasting gift to his family, his friends, his colleagues and to readers.


Lee died on Tuesday, September 20. It is now our honor to spread Lee's message with this special book

MY THOUGHTS
This is a wonderful book, sad, yet thought provoking.  What would you do if you found out you were going to die within a year or two?  Would you be depressed, give-up, live it up, or just continue to be yourself?  Would you be afraid?

I'm not sure how I would react, but in reading this book I can say the Lee was an extremely strong person and that it was an honor to read his book....even though sad, I enjoy every single page.  This is a book that I will enjoy reading over and over, as well as sharing with those I love.

  2. Even if we don't die of cancer, a lot of here are facing the truth that we will not live forever! When I die, I want to be at peace like the author.

  8. I was mis-diagnosed w/ cancer the week after I turned 21. I had to take myself to a whole different mindset, and think this book would be a great refresher.

  34. I like what the book says about "Living Each Day As If It Were Your Last". Sometimes we take things for granted and I feel that we just need to slow down and live life to its fullest.
