When they are not crisscrossing the country inspiring generations of people to live out their dreams, they can be found in Los Angeles, their home base.

When I bought this book I was under the impression that it was going to be longer, and more like actual words. Not just pictures with dreams. I wanted to it to be an actual long read, not just like 1/2 hour book and you're done. Thats exactly what happened it barely takes any time to read, its basically all pictures with other peoples bucket list ideas. Other than that there are a few areas of the book that are actual explanations. But not many. Its just not what I thought it would be. And I liked it. But, its not what I wanted it to be. I think they could of done way more with it. So just beware when you buy this book it probably will not be what you expected it to be.

I read some of the reviews that the book might not be up to par with my "inspirational expectations" due to its illustrative nature. Well, I bought it any way and I'm glad that I did! If a picture is worth a thousand words then this book is like buying a set of inspirational encyclopedias from your friendly door-to-door salesman (for those of you old enough to remember that!)!

Any way, where it lacks in text, it makes up for in amazing story telling through individuals dreams matched with amazing illustrations. If you're seeking a pick me up or looking for inspiration towards your next great accomplishment in life, this book will NOT let you down! Get it today!

Was kind of disappointed. It's more like a picture book for teens. Cool pics but that's about it. For such a weighty subject, I was expecting some meat, but got a salad.

I had high expectations of this book after reading an "article" written by one of the authors that intrigued me. The package arrived yesterday. I took a comfortable seat, had a cold drink on the side and began reading. I realized the "article" was actually the book's introduction. The intro was a good history of the guys, how they got this project started, etc. That introduction turned out to be about the only prose in the book. The bulk is filled with other people's "wish list item." Although the illustrations in the book were nice, it was disappointing to only see one "wish list item" per page. I haven't counted the book's pages but I suspect that if the "wish list item" were all together it would hardly extend two pages. The guys collected "wish list item" from reader of their web-page. The book is primarily a collection of the web-page reader "wish list item." I wish I'd borrowed the book rather than purchased it.

Great little coffee table book. Beautifully presented and perfect for triggering good conversations with mates, but I was really hoping to read more about the guys and what they've been up to!

Not quite what I expected. Most of the book is filled with one quote pages. I was expecting more of a detailed story.

Format: Paperback
What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? by Jonnie Penn, Dave Lingwood, Duncan Penn, and Ben Nemtin (collectively known as The Buried Life) was one of those spur-of-the-moment pick-ups at the library. As I get older, the whole "before you die" thing starts to make a little more sense. This particular book is much better than most when it comes to posing the question, as there's an actual story behind this list. It's that framework that makes this book work as well as it does...

The four authors, all friends (two of them are brothers), were at that stage in life where they were expected to be adults and start with the whole "responsibility" thing. But like most people on the threshold of legal adult-dom, they had no clue as to what to do and how to do it. This frustration led to a list of 100 things they wanted to do before they died, and it really didn't matter how outrageous it was. Some were easy, such as get a tattoo and grow a mustache. Others were out there, such as attend a party at the Playboy Mansion and play ball with the President. Side note... those have all been crossed off the list. They christened their effort The Buried Life, and set out on their quest as only those with youth on their side can (or will) do. They bought a dilapidated purple bus, set aside a couple of weeks, and went on the road. The only rule is that they would repay those who helped by helping others achieve their dreams. Little did they know what would transpire from that first two week trip.

I laughed and teared up when reading, as people pursuing hopes and dreams will do that to me. The format of the book reminds me of Post Secret, in that they took a number of the dreams of others and had them illustrated as pages.

I really enjoyed the book and I am glad the I supported the guys. That being said the book is a collection of other peoples "list items" set to artwork. Again I enjoyed it, I would recommend you scoop a copy for yourself.
