Synopsis: Once you get your hands on this heavenly book you won't be able to resist its inspirational instructions on how to live life--like you have nothing to lose.

Ten Fun Things to Do Before You Die blends humor, insight, and wisdom in a way that's accessible and irresistible. Nothing exhilarates and sends the soul soaring more than having the best time ever--so much so that face muscles ache from such hearty laughter, writes author Karol Jackowski, a nun for more than 35 years. May you have millions of such laughs. Time rarely gets more divine that that.

Featuring whimsical illustrations and pointers on how to rediscover a fulfilling life--including how to treat yourself, get some depth, and make yourself interesting--Ten Fun Things to Do Before You Die is a boundless well of enthusiasm and encouragement. It's a deceptively simple guide to life--and a way to rediscover the power of wry humor, humanity, and faith.

Review: The cover of Ten Fun Things to Do Before You Die says that its author is "nun other than" Karol Jackowski, which gives you a hint of the humor and humility that suffuses this sister's faith. (The cover's funky design, in the style of those old Monty Python animated interludes, is a tip-off too.) "Nothing exhilarates and sends the soul soaring more than having the best time ever--so much so that face muscles ache from such hearty laughter," she writes. "May you have millions of such laughs. Time rarely gets more divine than that." Each of the titular 10 things--from "Write Something at the End of Every Day" to "Think about Nuns" to "Live Like You Have Nothing Left to Lose"--is described in a short chapter, illustrated with very funny line drawings. Even people who can't stand self-help books may enjoy this one, because its voice is so delightfully free of sententiousness and so disarmingly candid. Ten Fun Things to Do Before You Die is a book that will challenge and comfort the reader, and serve as a reminder that we were created to enjoy the world--a message that will give many readers permission to do just that. --Michael Joseph Gross
