The return of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever!In 1977, with the publication of THE CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT THE UNBELIEVER, Stephen Donaldson created a true phenomenon: an epic fantasy instant bestseller that has now sold millions and millions of copies across the world.Thomas Covenant is mysteriously struck down by a disease believed…
This book is a true life reflection of how Bob lived his life to the full and, in his own words, tells the stories of what happened in his life (all the comedy moments, warts and all) whilst coping with the onslaught of this dreadful, debilitating disease.
Bob was always a 'Jack the Lad', having a laugh and a joke with his friends and, when he got the news, the MS didn't stop him and he went on to build two businesses with a 'You thought you got me' attitude. He carried on no matter what.
Whilst sitting in his old armchair, staring out of the window, with time on his hands and his feet freezing cold (Bob's feet were always freezing), he decided to share his story with the world by writing this book.
Whilst writing the book, he didn't want to sit around an old piano and regale stories with others in the same situation; he wanted to inspire people to carry on regardless and fight this damn thing head on. With this in mind, he decided to go on holiday on a Jumbulance down the Rhine (one off the bucket list) and take an Open University degree (there's another), all within the last twelve months of his life.
In short, this book was written to make you smile, to make you cry sometimes in laughter but, more than that, to share his journey and show that life does not come to an end with MS. We all have the same destination, it's just how we live it that makes the difference — with or without inconveniences such as 'MS'.
