Do you remember Charlotte York's amazingly sweet husband from Sex and the City, Harry Goldenblatt? Well, the actor who played Harry--Evan Handler--is also amazing for another reason.

I can't wait to read his books and stop feeling guilty about double-checking everything. He says he knows he's saved his own life several times and given what I've through, I believe it! Read about him in this fabulous CNN interview about being a "bad patient."
