An eloquent and inspirational account of a man's struggle in the face of a fatal illness
Date:5/12/2011

In March 2009, during a routine medical exam, Charles Harris learned that he had incurable cancer. Although a private man, he began a blog to keep family and friends current on his progress, and found a wider audience. From the blog was born the new book Incurable, an account of a man's struggle to live vibrantly and with courage in the face of a fatal illness.

An entrepreneur and investor by profession, Charles Harris writes about living and dying, friendship and fellowship, sports and wine, race horses and recessions. His style is optimistic, direct, humorous, and companionable. Readers will find his voice brave, inspirational, and an eloquent reminder that an understanding of cancer remains an urgent goal in biomedicine. Proceeds from this book will be used by the Harris family in support of cancer research.
