Lee Lipsenthal had a charmed life: married to the love of his life, the proud father of two remarkable children, working as medical director of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute. In his personal relationships and with his patients, Lee was committed to living his life fully and gratefully each day. The power of those beliefs were tested in July 2009 when he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, leaving him with a 90 percent chance of dying within five years. As Lee and his wife Kathy navigated his diagnosis, illness and treatment, he discovered that he did not fear death, and even as he faced his own mortality, he felt more fully alive than ever before. In the bestselling tradition of "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" and "The Last Lecture", "Enjoy Every Sandwich" distils everything Lee learned about how we find meaning, purpose and peace in our lives. Told with humour and heart, this deeply inspiring book will help readers embrace their humanity, accept uncertainty and live a life of gratitude - whether they are facing the end now or not.

    " Nice book and easy read. Life tips we all need "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pauline | 2/3/2014

    " Related by a physician who was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, this story focuses on how life is best focused on by enjoying the closeness, special moments and fun things we all do each and every day. While this sounds Pollyanna in perspective, this author doesn't leave out the doubt, pain and concern he and those closest to him go through as he walks his path of conventional and alternative healing methods. Lee then suggests that people who are healthy try these "normal" and easy methods to get more out of their lives while enjoying life more. People don't have to wait until they face death to learn to live and for this reason, I recommend the book to everyone who feels they are so overwhelmed by responsibility they have no time to enjoy life. Here are ways to make that time and still meet your responsibilities. "

    " I think I would have enjoyed this more if I, or someone I was close to (god forbid), was going through similar issues. It was good, I liked it, I just kept wondering to myself, why am I reading this???? It's like reading a book for divorcee's when you are happily married. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Gilfillan | 1/22/2014

    " We are blessed with one life and it is up to us to live it to the fullest and make the best of it that we can. But sometimes it's not until we face our death that we most deeply realize how precious this life is. Many thanks to Lee for graciously sharing his insights, even as he struggled with cancer and prepared to depart from this life. His book is a valuable one to read no matter what stage of life we are in. "

    " Dr. Lipsenthal was very much into past lives and alternative therapy. I was hoping for more insight on how to talk with and support people who are dying from cancer. I'll have to keep looking for that book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sam | 1/4/2014

    " Quick read. Reminds us all to enjoy life because you never know when it will all end. There were some parts of the book that I just didn't quite get but maybe thats just me. All in all a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 10/8/2013

    " A life changer! I listened to the audio of this and some moments were so poignant as the author was the narrator. Very positive and makes you take stock of your life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kecia Lowe | 6/28/2013

    " Excellent!! Well written and riveting story. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would gladly read it again. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amandeep Cattry | 4/30/2013

    " East short read. GIves different perspectives on how life can be perceived on the externally and internally. Well written, recommend it to all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelle | 4/3/2013

    " Written by a doctor who helps others face death without feeling fear as well as his experience with cancer. I like the idea of this more than the actual book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audra Schultz | 2/24/2013

    " Just finished this last week. A very interesting way a person can embrace death and cancer. I wanted to read to gain some insight on what my dad thought, felt when he was diagnosed with only weeks to live. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen Stewart | 2/12/2013

    " Short book with lots of good ideas about appreciating life before we die. The author wrote the book just prior to his death. I loved his part about gratitude. Some of the author's ideas are new to me, but I learned from them anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/10/2013

    " Valuable advice but a little heart-rending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyn | 11/17/2012

    " What a wonderful read. It made me ponder. Are you living each day with gratitude ? Surrounded with love? Being true to your authentic self? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 2/1/2012

    " This book is changing my life. I am now keeping a "Gratitude" journal and am going to start yoga and meditation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Anderson | 11/23/2011

    " One of the best books I've ready about "Being Present" and enjoying the most of every day. Quick read - worth the time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hildy Agustin | 11/14/2011

    " There were some great moments, but a lot of it seemed to be about Lipsenthal sharing his own beliefs related to meditation and Eastern ideals, which didn't feel that relatable to me. "
