    1. Oh, my. I read this book out of curiosity, because Jim Beaver is one of my favorite characters (Bobby Singer) on one of my favorite TV shows (Supernatural). Little did I know that Beaver is also an eloquent writer, a humble and yet humorous man, with a powerful faith and a powerful love for his wife and daughter that shines through every page. The story of his wife's tragic battle with cancer and the months that follow her loss is gripping, as Beaver chronicles their story in nightly emails (the [...]


    2. There are no words that can begin to describe this book. I read it in a single sitting, unable to put it down, and needed a box of tissues beside me because I cried at least twice.What Jim did is take an incredibly painful experience and help us, his readers, not only understand what he was going through, but we also experienced it with him.His writing is eloquent and he speaks straight from the heart. You don't have to be famous to understand what he went through. It's something all of us have [...]


    3. This should be an Oprah book club choice and a national best-seller.I stumbled across this book via Marquita Herald’s Website, Emotionally Resilient Living, where she quoted him. I’ve long been a Jim Beaver fan via the TV show, Supernatural, but, neglectfully, had never researched him to discover that he is also a writer.This book is one to be read in small doses. I started it in March and took until May to finish. It is the unembellished near-nightly emails that Mr. Beaver shared with an ev [...]


    4. Available for purchase on April 16th! Please check out the reviews for Jim's memoir, "Life's That Way" at .Jim has a personal blog - open to public - at MySpace.A deeply moving, inspirational story of courage in the face of unexpected and tragic loss, love in the face of fear and an absolute refusal to live in self-pity and anger. In 2003, actor/writer Jim Beaver and wife, Cecily Adams had it all - a beautiful young daughter, careers taking off after years of hard work. Jim's skilled portrayal o [...]


    5. How do you rate a book full of such honesty, tragedy, courage, hope, and every other emotion with a certain number of stars just seemms horribly inept. I will however rate this book based upon the emotional impact that it had on me and that was huge. My mom's mother died of cancer when my mom was just six (and she lost her dad just a few years later) and knowing what it was like for her made me think of the road that Mr. Beaver's little girl Maddie will have to face. It will not be easy for but [...]


    6. This book touched me a way I didn't expect. I expected it to be sad and I expected it to be hard to read what I didn't expect was how much it influenced my thoughts. The honest feelings shared within these pages really will influence my life. There were so many phrases, experiences that left me with a better appreciation for life and for those I love. Nobody is perfect, nobody has no regrets but I think its clear you never truly understand what you have till its gone. I feel better for having re [...]


    7. Jim Beaver gewährt dem Leser einen tiefen und persönlichen Einblick in das Jahr, in dem seine Frau schwer erkrankt und er nach ihrem Tod mit der zweijährigen, autistischen Tochter alleine zurückbleibt. Dabei stehen natürlich die Trauer und die Ängste im Vordergrund, doch reflektiert der Autor auch immer wieder seine Ehe und sein Verhalten in dieser schwierigen Zeit auf eine fast schon schonungslose Weise, die mich beeindruckt hat. Gleichzeitig ist durch das ganze Buch hinweg zu spüren wie [...]


    8. This is a hard review for me to write. I should preface this review by saying a couple things. Firstly, I don't tend to read non-fiction books. I prefer fantasy to real-life when I am reading. Secondly, I sought out this book originally because I, like many other readers, am a Supernatural fan. I have always loved the character Jim plays, Bobby Singer. Thirdly, I never thought that I would willingly read a book that deals with this kind of real life loss.This book is written in real time, so wha [...]


    9. Absolutely heart-wrenchingly beautiful.Jim Beaver's Life's That Way is an amazing book, filled with heartache, joy, triumphs and losses. I fully admit that in the beginning, I only wished to read the book because Mr. Beaver plays a popular character on my favourite show, Supernatural, but I assure you, within the first couple of pages, I completely forgot about the actor, and focused on the man.Life's That Way is a collection of nightly e-mails that Jim began after his wife, Cecily, was diagnose [...]


    10. Jim Beaver’s raw and beautiful memoir, at its core, is a love story. The author generously shares a year in his life—a year that would cause many of us to pull the covers over our heads and not emerge for a long, long time. The story begins with news of his wife Cecily’s shocking Stage IV cancer--just months after the couple’s toddler Maddie is diagnosed with autism. The saga begins in the form of a nightly email to a growing list of family and friends, apprising them of Cecily’s statu [...]


    11. I knew going into this that it was going to pull at my heartstrings and have me crying. What I didn't expect was to ride the roller-coaster that is this book. Knowing that these were letters that Mr. Beaver sent out to friends and family and watching the narrative evolve was powerful stuff. I felt as if I were intruding on something private and precious. I felt as if I were watching Maddie grow and found myself shocked and uncertain when Cecily fate finally happened. What surprised me the most w [...]


    12. It looks like it took me a long time to read this book, but that's because I had to put it down for a little while mid way through.Jim Beaver writes so honestly and openly in his book, it's heart breaking yet so full of love at the same time. Jim made me wish I knew his wife Cecily Adams, and his love for his wife was so beautiful. This book made me cry many times, and pulled at my heart lots. I put it down as a definite read for all.


    13. If I'd never heard of Jim Beaver, never 'known' Bobby Singer (from the TV Show "Supernatural"), never watched him in any TV Show, I would admire this man simply for the story he's shared in this book.Anyone looking to read this book probably knows the basics of the story it contains, but I will quote specifics in this review, so read with that in mind.The book jacket calls this a memoir. "In August 2003, Jim and his wife Cecily received what they thought was the worst news possible--their daught [...]


    14. I read this book a few years ago now and didnt realise I hadnt put up my review here. I did write one here goes Wow. What an amazing book. For those of you who don’t know what it’s about In August 2003, Jim and his wife Cecily received what they thought was the worst news possible--their daughter, Maddie, was autistic. Then, six weeks later, the roof fell in--Cecily was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. It’s SO much more I have had Jim Beaver’s book “Life’s That Way” for a coup [...]


    15. I have been avoiding reading this book for years now. Perhaps I should have read it sooner. It is one of the most human treatments of grief and the grieving process I've ever read, plus it is interesting and funny (in bits) and compelling and difficult to put down.Immensely talented as a writer as well as an actor, Jim Beaver did not sit down with a plan to write a book about losing his wife to lung cancer. When his wife, Cecily Adams (daughter of Don), was diagnosed in the fall of 2003, he simp [...]


    16. Starring in HBO’s ‘Deadwood’, Jim Beaver was married to Cecily Adams, the daughter of television star Don Adams who played in the t.v. drama ‘Get Smart’. Jim and Cecily had a beautiful marriage, a wonderful new baby daughter named Madeline or Maddie as they loving referred to her, they were building their dream home and both had good jobs, Jim as a television actor and Cecily who casted for ‘That 70’s Show’. They had a great life and were deeply in love but all that was soon to c [...]


    17. Jim Beaver's Life's That Way is the most sincere account about the battle with cancer I've ever read. The book is a collection of e-mails Jim sent daily to family and friends about his wife's struggle with stage IV lung cancer. For most people who have experienced the disease this is indeed a painful read, but it also offers hope and reasons to smile. When Cecily was diagnosed, an unbelievable number of family members and friends offered to help in any way they could, making Cecily, Jim, and the [...]


    18. Every now and then I come across a book that resonates so deeply with me I feel its touch for years to come. I suspect Life's That Way is one of those rare and wonderful novels. I could make the grand statement that this book changed my life, and I'm sure it would come off sounding like a load of bull, but it would also be true. It has been one year, one month, and 21 days since I lost a person I loved dearly, and not a week goes by that I don't think of her in some way. The lessons I've learned [...]


    19. This is a marvellous book about a horrible time. Just writing that makes me cringe because it almost seems insulting, but I've no better way to describe it. Jim Beaver has shared the most tragic time in his life and his struggle to recover from it - shared his darkest hours through his writings with family and now complete strangers in an attempt to help anyone else struggling with such devastation as the loss of their second half or even those of us who know others in similar situations. Trying [...]


    20. Read this in one sitting, now feel so emotionally wrung out. It might sound wrong to say I enjoyed this book due to the content, but this book left me ultimately full of hope, Hope for Jim and his beautiful sounding daughter, for the life they will forge together after their loss. The loss of Cec seems to have left a huge hole and one Jim is free to admit affects him when he least expects it, but one he is aware of, which to me sounds healthy, I expected this book to be a 'life is unfair' and a [...]


    21. Wow. Just wow. This book was beautiful and honest. It was loaned to me a couple of years ago when my mother passed away by a thoughtful friend that told me she believed it might be good for me to read. While I have to say that I'm glad I waited this long to read it, I'm so unbelievably happy that I did read it. While the relationship of the loss was different (Mr. Beaver and his wife, me and my mom), some of the emotion and thoughts and guilt and joy was all the same. Nobody grieves the same way [...]


    22. In "Deadwood," the second best TV show ever made, Calamity Jane said, "Every day takes figuring out all over again how to fuckin' live," and I thought about that line when I read this this memoir by another Deadwood actor. Jim Beaver is an excellent writer; his book is plain-spoken, funny, grueling, and impossible to put down, with none of the show-offy-ness of a lot of the so-called "literary" memoirs I've been reading lately. And I'd like to read a follow-up in about five years, just to see ho [...]



    23. Life's That Way: A Memoir“I’ve learned that in the midst of heartbreak, nothing on earth is more valuable than talking about it and having open hearts ready to hear it,” said actor, playwright, and film historian, 59-year-old Jim Beaver.Life’s That Way, a memoir by Beaver, is a compilation of one family’s journey through life’s hardships and how that journey affected and touched the people around them. In August of 2003 Beaver and his wife, 45-year-old Cecily Adams, actress and casti [...]


    24. LIFE'S THAT WAY, by Jim BeaverA ReviewI confess to having some trouble figuring out how to write this review. Not because the book isn't remarkable - it is - but because I did not want to cheapen its import with a casual splash of words. This book means something to me. As a cancer survivor, I found it means more than I can easily express."Life's That Way" is, foremost of all, a love story and a testament to the human spirit. Jim Beaver does not portray his wife as a flawless woman, nor paint hi [...]


    25. Jim Beaver's book, "Life's That Way," came out on April 16th. This book is his memoir, a poignant compilation of the almost nightly emails chronicling his wife's battle with cancer, their hopes and fears for their daughter who had just been diagnosed with autism and the condition of his father and brother-in-law who were also in battles for their lives. While these emails began as a utilitarian method of communicating the daily news and travails of their family, they morphed into so much more. T [...]


    26. Having just lost my Dad almost 5 months ago to secondary lung cancer this book resonated with me on so many levels. I would nod along to Jim's observations of the advancement of Cecily's illness and the feelings and emotions that went along with watching a loved one become sick, suffer and ultimately fall victim to this insidious horror of a disease. The hope that abounds when it's first discovered, the realisation that there's no getting out of this alive, and then the painful journey afterward [...]


    27. Like many, I learned of this book because both my wife and I are big fans of "Supernatural," on which Jim Beaver gives a delightful and cantankerous portrayal of hunter and replacement father, Bobby Singer. Because I do not read a lot of non-fiction and even less self-help books, it is unlikely that I would have found this wonderful book otherwise. But, though sad for the events which occasioned the book, I am blessed and thankful for having found and read it--not because it is the work of a gif [...]


    28. I'm still processing this one and probably will be for days. I initially began it and thought, "Why am I reading such a heavy topic when I should be reading an escapist book. I could use a little light humor." Luckily, curiousity won through and I read it in three days. It was a heart-wrenching, grab-the-box-of-tissues, interwoven-with-humor-and-insight, type of book. (Yes. I'm hyphen-happy just now.)I originally picked up this book because the daughter was diagnosed with autism and I'm always c [...]
