Barry du Bois shares an incredible story that is heart-breaking and life-affirming in equal measures.

Faced with the recurrence of his incurable cancer Channel 10's The Living Room's building and design expert Barry Du Bois leaves nothing to chance as he embraces a do-or-die treatment to extend his time with his precious young children and wife Leonie. With the team at Dr Chis O'Brien's Life House and his best mates TV chef Miguel Maestre, Amanda Keller and Chris Brown in his corner, Barry shares an incredible story that is heart-breaking and life-affirming in equal measures.

Raised in a fibro house beside a six-lane highway in Sydney's west, Barry retired from his successful building business in his early forties to deal with crippling depression but got a second wind as a television presenter talking about his favourite subjects, building and design, and becoming a later-life father to twins after a long quest via IVF and surrogacy.

Now, during what Barry describes as his 'last episode', he contemplates a gifted life and the lessons learned.


Excellent reaad


Going through kidney cancer for the past six years and then have it metastasize in my hip this book was a real eye opener to what Barry went through. Loved his recollections of his childhood and his determination to beat it. He talks about his close friendship with Miguel and also Amanda and Chris. Loved the recipes from Miguel gave me some ideas as you do lose your sense of taste with chemo. Have passed this on to my friends and their friends.
