"The Priority List" by David Menasche

The Priority List--A Teacher's Final Quest to Discover Life's Greatest Lessons by David Menasche is a true story about the author, a high school teacher who was diagnosed with brain cancer.  He lost his vision and for the most part, his mobility.  Vowing not to go out without a fight, he decides to go on a long trip with the help of his former students.  I could tell he must have been a fantastic teacher because his former students go way out of the way to help him.  One of the best parts of this book is the written test for many of his former students.

Here's a teaser from page 23:
I couldn't hear bear the idea of him being gone.  Or even worse, of him suffering for years to come.  I didn't know what to say or what to do.  All I could do is cry.  Then he said something I'll never forget.

I loved this book--it's a great story!  David shows that even now, he is still teaching.
(Gerard's review, 5++ stars)
