To argue with oblivion is a beautiful memoir about Anthony and his life dealing with a brain tumor that is too large for radiotherapy. Anthony sets out to find a way to treat himself with no drugs to treat it, laying all options in front of him. However, the main operation creates more problems causing additional emergency surgeries. Each surgery tests his strength, patience, and demeanor.
Eventually, He is left in a wheelchair, facially disfigured, Brain-damaged with impaired speech, losing his job, identity, and any hope of a normal future. He is seemingly broken beyond repair or redemption.
I found the book to be fascinating to read. How someone can carry on the way Anthony does is beyond my comprehension. What I do know is how strong one can be. It takes him two years to walk and five years to speak. This is a genuinely encouraging story worth reading.
We have setbacks all the time in life. I believe the actual test is how many times we get back up.
I recommend it to anyone who likes to read inspiring memoirs.Tweet
