Tenacity follows one man's journey from being the doctor to being the patient. We get an in-depth view into the struggles of learning to live with a serious health condition, one that ultimately let to shortening Dr. Lessin's career. What would you do if your livelihood what suddenly curtailed by a health crisis? Would you pick up the pieces and move on? Would you pull together the strength and courage to make the hard changes and keep living life to the fullest? Could you count on having great friends and family surround you, turning themselves into your personal cheering section?
It takes a great deal of gumption to stare a serious illness in the eye and not blink. What I find compelling in Tenacity is how one man refuses to give up in the face of adversity. He's forced into a version of retirement when his health starts failing, but he doesn't just roll over and give into the illness. He finds the strength to keep on going. He had to redefine his life and what it meant to live fully, but he did so with great courage. Tenacity isn't just one man's memoir. It's a study of the human condition. I give Tenacity a full 5 stars.
