"Read on and learn how to spend your life's precious time with more love and less fear."

--Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of Peace, Love and Healing, and Love, Medicine and Miracles

Watch Dr. Lee Lipsenthal speak about the book

As medical director of the famed Preventive Medicine Research Institute, Lee Lipsenthal helped thousands of patients struggling with disease to overcome their fears of pain and death and to embrace a more joyful way of living. In his own life, happily married and the proud father of two remarkable children, Lee was similarly committed to living his life fully and gratefully each day.

The power of those beliefs was tested in July 2009, when Lee was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. As Lee and his wife, Kathy, navigated his diagnosis, illness, and treatment, he discovered that he did not fear death, and that even as he was facing his own mortality, he felt more fully alive than ever before. In the bestselling tradition of Tuesdays with Morrie, told with humor and heart, and deeply inspiring, Enjoy Every Sandwich distills everything Lee learned about how we find meaning, purpose, and peace in our lives.

"Dr. Lipsenthal is a profound explorer of our inner and outer worlds. Enjoy Every Sandwich will help you heal your fear of death and embrace the true joy of life's extraordinary journey."

-Edgar Dean Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut

"Often, patients given a terminal diagnosis reach a surprising, transforming conclusion: you have to be ready to die to embrace being alive. But Lee Lipsenthal tells his story with such intimacy and humanity that this paradoxical fact can be accessed even by those who have not (yet) leaned out over the abyss."

-Andrew Weil, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Healthy Aging and Eight Weeks to Optimum Health

"After his stunning diagnosis of an often fatal cancer, Dr. Lipsenthal embarks on a journey of bravery, practicality, and humor to guide his way through the greatest of uncertainties. He allows us in, during the dark days and the brighter ones. Let Dr. Lipsenthal be your guide on a journey that, ultimately, all of us will take."

-Clint Eastwood

"To read Enjoy Every Sandwich is to step through a door that opens only one way into a larger life. Of all the books you've read this year, this is the one that will heal you."

-Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., author of Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather's Blessings

"If you want to learn to love with your whole heart, so that when you come to the end of your life you will have no regrets, Lee Lipsenthal's gracious and caring book is for you. Lee has not just written a book that is filled with grounded inspiration and hard-earned wisdom. He has written a book that you will never forget."

-John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America, Healthy at 100, and The New Good Life
