Synopsis: Michael J. Fox abandoned high school to pursue an acting career, but went on to receive honorary degrees from several universities and garner the highest accolades for his acting, as well as for his writing. In his new book, he inspires and motivates graduates to recognize opportunities, maximize their abilities, and roll with the punches--all with his trademark optimism, warmth, and humor.

In A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future, Michael draws on his own life experiences to make a case that real learning happens when "life goes skidding sideways." He writes of coming to Los Angeles from Canada at age eighteen and attempting to make his way as an actor. Fox offers up a comically skewed take on how, in his own way, he fulfilled the requirements of a college syllabus. He learned Economics as a starving artist; an unexpected turn as a neophyte activist schooled him in Political Science; and his approach to Comparative Literature involved stacking books up against their movie versions.

Replete with personal stories and hilarious anecdotes, Michael J. Fox's new book is the perfect gift for graduates.

About the Author: Michael J. Foxbegan his career as the lovable Alex P. Keaton, the star of the poular sitcomFamily Ties.Since then, his career has been a nonstop success story, with blockbuster movies likeBack to the Future,The Secret of my Success, Doc Hollywood,and the lead voice in Disney'sAtlantis: The Lost Empire. He retired from his award-winning role onSpinCity. Michael has won numerous awards, including four Golden Globes, four Emmys, two Screen Actors Guild awards,GQMan of the Year, and the People's Choice award. He is the author of two books,Lucky ManandAlways Looking Up.

He actively lobbies for stem cell research around the country and is very visible in raising money for Parkinsons research with the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
