Publisher's Summary

Within the this extraordinary audiobook, you will discover a practical yet powerful process to re-create your life and reconnect with your best self.  

'Release any concerns that you have about this path you’re about to walk on, and just go into it with the curiosity of a child, knowing that you’ll come out on the other side as a new person, or, to be more accurate, far more of the person who you truly are and have been created to be.'

Jack Valentine seemed to have it all. He made good money as an ad man and looked good doing it. He had a hot apartment, cool friends, even a slick car - at least until the hectic Monday morning a truck smashed into it, sending the critically injured Jack to the hospital.  

Everything happens for a reason, though, and Jack’s reason reveals itself in the silver-haired cancer patient who becomes his roommate one evening. The elderly man, Cal, shares his life story - one not dissimilar to Jack’s - of material wealth masking a gaping hole within. Cal ultimately found salvation through philosophy ('the love of wisdom') and now offers to help Jack by prepping the younger man for the Final Questions we all must face: Have I lived wisely? Have I loved well? Have I served greatly?  

Presenting Jack with three plane tickets, each accompanied by a map marked with a red X, Cal sends Jack to meet with three great teachers, each of whom will help Jack answer one of the Final Questions - just as they once helped Cal. First, in Rome, Jack will meet 'the Saint'. Then a haunted beach in Hawaii introduces him to 'the Surfer'. And finally the grandeur of New York City sets the stage for his last encounter: with 'the CEO'.  

Along the way, Jack will learn to do his interior work, discover that our negative traits offer gateways to higher versions of ourselves and understand that figuring things out in your head can distract you from the powerful whispers of your heart. Join Jack on his journey and step into the you that you were always meant to be.

Childish

Robin you're not good at writing fiction (with due respect). I appreciate the messages which could have been delivered much better and in a shorter book without the silly story which honestly is written in the most unnatural and childish manner. sorry but I wanted to be honest. keep true to your talent (as the Saint would say). cheers.

Amazing story about life’s wisdom, love and legacy

Wow what a touching novel. If you were a fan of other classics such as the Alchemist, and Siddhartha then this contemporary novel is right up your alley. The book takes our narrator Jack from tragedy amidst a personal conflict, to meeting his destiny and setting himself on his true path. His encounters with his teachers the saint, the surfer and the CEO offer insight that will make you think differently and have you jotting down notes to help improve yourself and the world around you. I highly recommend this to any self seeker looking to expand on what they already know while seeing new nuances to more open minded, compassionate thinking.
