A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future: Twists and Turns and Lessons Learned by Michael J. Fox.
Michael J. Fox – best known for his roles on successful television shows and in movies like the Back to the Future franchise – writes about receiving honorary degrees from several universities and becoming a New York Times bestselling author, despite leaving high school to pursue acting. With humility and wit, Fox describes how he learned economics, political science and comparative literature through life experiences as a starving artist, activist and movie buff.
Fox, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, is the leading private funder of PD research in the world and a primary sponsor of the Michael J. Fox Family Visual and Performing Arts Scholarships, which awards individual scholarships of $1,000-$5,000 each year.
