"Bald, Fat & Crazy" — A Book About Perseverance

Today I write in praise of a new book called "Bald, Fat & Crazy." No, it's not a memoir, but thank you for asking.

Nearly a decade ago my friend Stephanie Hosford found herself unexpectedly pregnant, diagnosed with a virulent form of breast cancer, and just months from a long-planned international adoption, all at the same time. The book, freshly released and justifiably well-reviewed, is the story of how she handled it. It's funny and inspiring, and useful in reminding us that whatever faces us, someone else is facing something even scarier. Check it out.
