New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Tropper's funny, touching family story about a man named Silver who has begun to accept that his life isn't going to turn out as he expected. The ex-wife he's still friends with is about to marry a terrific guy Silver can't quite bring himself to hate, and his Princeton-bound teenage daughter has just confided in him that she's pregnant, because he's the one she cares least about letting down. So when he learns that his heart requires emergency, lifesaving surgery, Silver makes the radical decision to refuse the operation, choosing instead to use what little time he has left to repair his relationship with Casey, become a better man, and live in the moment - even if that moment isn't destined to last very long.

I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
The publisher's sumary.
It did not incrase anything.
No. I could not even finish.
He did his best.
"Another great book from a wonderful author"
This is the second book I have read by Mr Tropper ('How to talk to a widower' was the first). Silver is a lovely character. Full of self pity and regrets and flawed up to the eyeballs. Although only in his mid-forties he has resigned himself to a lonely and futile existence brought about by his own mistakes. When he is diagnosed with a life threatening illness his response to his situation causes his friends and family to react in all sorts of unexpected ways.
Don't be put off by the subject matter. This is a funny, moving and totally satisfying read filled with memorable characters. This one left me with a smile on my face and a desire to read more from this author.
"Absolute Rubbish! The stars are black ones"
Not writing it. Not having any of those four letter swear words that may be current language to our american cousins, but indicate a lacking in the use of the English language.
It certainly has. Couldn't make head or tail of the story (did it have one?)
The narrator sounded so very bored with the whole thing. I was surprised to learn that W.Hope is canadian, his voice sounded like a cowboy from the far west
If by redeeming you mean I can change it with something else...... Otherwise it is just absolute rubbish!
A sheer waste of money. I bought it because your write up said it was a "funny touching family story". There was nothing funny nor touching. I only got less than half way through then cancelled it from my device. A waste of money and not worthy of being an Audible.
