I don't always agree with Cheney's politics but I did like this book. It is a very detailed journey through illness, medical diagnosis and surgeries on his heart.

Mr Cheney is blessed with having a very close and loving family who were at his side through many of his medial emergencies. It was nice that the family had the resources to be able to drop what they were doing, no matter where they were, and be at his side. Most families could not afford to do that.
