    Story
    "The gift that keeps on giving"
    If you could sum up The Ultimate Gift in three words, what would they be?

    Timeless...inspiring...essential.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ultimate Gift?

    The section that described the "Golden List." Something so easy to do, yet easy to not do. We make grocery lists, to-do lists, Christmas lists, etc. Yet, we rarely put together as daily list of what we're grateful for.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene with the elderly gentleman who just buried his wife of 60 years. My life flashed forward so quickly when I thought of my wife and how fast it will go by. I needed the reminder to daily create a special life for not only me, but wife, daughter and so many others. To look back on a live lived with no regrets is a life well-lived.


    If you could take any character from The Ultimate Gift out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Red Stevens.

    "Loved this Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ultimate Gift to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but I liked it better than the movie.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene in the lawyer's office when the will was originally read for the whole family.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved all the lessons in this book. I'd like to get the print version to keep as a reminder.

    I love to read! I love reading even more now with my Audible account. I probably read two to three books a month. And, yes, I have a life!

    "Great story"

    I saw the movie and wanted to know more about the relationship between Jason and the mom. What a sweet story. I walked about from this little two hour book totally affected.

    "The Best Things in Life are not Things"

    Great message that we all need to be reminded of frequently. Cleverly written story and the narrator did a great job. I will probably listen to this one every few years just to keep me mindful of what is really important in this life. Take the time to listen - it's a short story, but a very important one.

    "Buy It !"

    I bought this book (the hard copy) many many years ago, and I have read it many times, I've lent it out many times, and I have to say it has had some profound effects.

    I highly recommend you listen to it, its wonderful.
