Incredibly, Jim turns that horror into an uplifting tour de force that's scarily smart…and absolutely leaves you laughing! - Mike Walker, National Enquirer, Jan 23, 2012 edition
From Publishers Weekly
Amidst accelerating personal, professional, and financial crises, L.A. journalist Moret was seriously contemplating suicide; he pulled through by seizing on the question of his last day-what would he cherish most?-as an opportunity to rediscover the beauty, love and value in his life. Devoting each of 24 chapters to a topic like sacrifice, tenacity, laughter, music, passion and wonder, Moret draws lessons from stories about friends and family, his childhood, personal obstacles, and his career at CNN and elsewhere. Moret's smooth journalistic prose and 24-hour checklist make this a swift, focused inspirational memoir.
