Strong at the broken places : voices of illness, a chorus of hope by Richard M Cohen( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The remarkable story of five ordinary people trapped in the complex world of serious chronic illness. In this intimate portrait, journalist Cohen probes lives of sickness as these individuals struggle to cope. This book was born of the desire of many to share their stories in the hope that the sick and those who love them will see that they are not alone. Cohen spent three years chronicling the lives of five diverse "citizens of sickness" with ALS, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Crohn's disease, muscular dystrophy, and bipolar disorder. Though each individual's illness wreaks havoc in a different way, Cohen shows how their experiences are strikingly similar and offer lessons for us all--on self-determination, on courage in the face of adversity and public ignorance, on keeping hope alive, and on finding strength and peace under the most difficult of circumstances.--From publisher description

In this four-part series Bill Moyers examines the impact on democracy of a mass culture, much of whose basic information comes from the media, public opinion polls, public relations and image-making. The focus of this film is on the power of deception and its influence on some main events in American history. The question is if the American people are so used to political lies that they can no longer do without. Bill Moyers concludes that harsh realities are too often covered up by comfortable lies and illusions

Blindsided : [lifting a life above illness : a reluctant memoir] by Richard Cohen( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Illness came calling when Richard M. Cohen was twenty-five years old. A young television news producer with expectations of a limitless future, his foreboding that his health was not quite right turned into the harsh reality that something was very wrong when diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. For thirty years Cohen has done battle with MS only to be ambushed by two bouts of colon cancer at the end of the millennium. And yet, he has written a hopeful book about celebrating life and coping with chronic illness. "Welcome to my world," writes Cohen, "where I carry around dreams, a few diseases, and the determination to live life my way." Autobiographical at its roots, reportorial, and expansive, Blindsided explores the effects of illness on raising three children and on his relationship with wife, Meredith Vieira (host of ABC's "The View" and the syndicated "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?"). Cohen tackles the nature of denial and resilience, the ins and outs of the struggle for emotional health, and the redemptive effects of a loving family. And while dealing with illness is not the way he chose to live his life, it did choose him
