    1. Just buy the book and read the book. Time is a factor where we sometimes think it might just come back. It doesn't work that way. It just goes away and never come back. Then, we have less time ahead of us. What do you want to do with what's left? Just buy the book and you will know, at least get an idea what you should do.

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed the 'reminder' that life is short and you should take advantage of allll the marbles you have left! Truly a "feel good" book; some of the passages brought back good memories, while others made me think 'I gotta DO that!"
