Angelfinger is a memoir: He left home for the hospital to learn why his legs were becoming weaker; a stay of no more than a couple of days. It was a year before he returned! In the interval Preston Bradley embarks on a journey that involves daily coping with the dire effects of a stroke that left him paralyzed and advanced matastasized prostate cancer. But he miraculously survived both of them; and lived to write in a book his fascinating sojourn with cancer and a stroke. His experience is not intended to be a horrid tale of certain death knocking, and cheating the grave diggers of an hour's work; but it's for the reader to become involved in the story of a man who was blessed to retain his mental faculties and, therefore, able to let them in on some of the clandestine drama that's associated with his serious illnesses. Some of it carries humor, a lot of it is spiritual, and some of it is revealing of what can go on in a primary and secondary health care environment. Through his memoirs Preston Bradley shares a stage of life that has taught him valuable lessons that the reader, too, will want to consider for their own journey through life. It's one of the best autobiographies I've ever read.
