All my Might highlights the journey of a man who refuses to give up hope. Follow John Fish as he recalls his diagnosis and operation for brain cancer; his distinguished career in journalism, which included trips from Hawaii to several countries in Europe, and war-torn Bosnia; and his encounters with notable figures. Fish's memoir captures the spirit of growing up in Boone, N.C., and attending the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He relives these memories by intertwining stories of friendship and long-held kinship throughout the book.
All my Might is not only a story of surviving, but after his operation, Fish learns he will have a large, residual tumor for the rest of his life. Fish walks us through how he manages day-to-day life in a positive and uplifting way and proves there really can be a second act. ?
In the book, Fish includes 30 blogs he wrote the first two years after his operation. The blogs give you an inside look at the many challenges John encountered while battling such things as chemotherapy and radiation treatments, as well as continuing seizures.

John grew up in Boone, N.C., and went to the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, majoring in Journalism.

Editorial Reviews

"John Fish was riding high when he got a diagnosis that would bring anyone low - brain cancer. But Fish, with characteristic optimism, refused to see it as an end. He made it a beginning. His memoir details how he found help on the campus of his hated rival, recalls the highs and lows of diagnosis, surgery, chemo and radiation, and how friends helped him over each obstacle. John Fish has a lot of friends and when you read his book it's easy to see why. His story is poignant, funny, touching and inspirational. Among the anecdotes Fish weaves in tips for others facing similar problems. A lot of his advice hinges on maintaining a good attitude. Clearly he has followed it himself." - James Folker, The Augusta Chronicle
