If you had 24 hours to live...Should you finally forgive the one who hurt you the most and would you find the courage to apologize to the person you wronged? Who would you remember as your life’s greatest love? Could you recognize what you are truly grateful for? Jim Moret didn’t fully understand the answers to those questions until he was literally a day away from ending his own life. This veteran television broadcaster and interviewer turns the camera on himself, taking the reader on an intimate journey. He moves beyond depression, tragedy, and self-doubt and grapples with his greatest decision: not simply whether to live but how to live. If you had only 24 hours left... what would you do?
“This is a marvelous collection of the right way to do things. Jim Moret’s book belongs in every library.”
“I think everyone has asked the question of themselves, but very few have explored it the way Jim Moret has in this heartbreaking, heart-strengthening, universally recognizable foray into what goes into making us Whole as individuals and as people. The things that we must face in ourselves and put into balance, before we find ourselves in the darkness of no return. So take a page from Jim’s book. It may not be the answer, but it is certainly part of the conversation.”
“It is simple enough to say that contemplating death teaches one to live. Indeed, Jim Moret looked over that brink and determined that he should live. Rarely, however, does an author take a reader through the journey that brings one so vividly to that moment. Once there, he shares with us his evolution from despair toward miracles, unforeseen adventures and most importantly the deepening of the relationships that give life its meaning. Well done.”
-Dr. Drew Pinsky
