Publisher's Summary

A young woman who knows she is dying of a terminal disease shares a summation of everything she comes to believe about life and death.

What would you do if you were going to die soon? What wisdom would you impart to the world if you knew it was your last chance? Sara Frankl's eventual death was indeed tragic, but the vignettes she presents are unforgettable. Choose Joy is a must-have for those searching for meaning and beauty in a world full of tragedy. Her words breathe with vitality and life, and her stories will inspire smiles, tears, and the desire to "choose joy". Listeners will find themselves contemplating what really matters and move to reassess their day-to-day perspectives on life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Very inspiring

Since I'm from the same geographical area that Sara was from and share some of her health problems, I really wanted to read this story. Sarah was an inspiration to those who knew her personally and through social media. She deliberately chose not to succumb to the depression or despair that her suffering might have caused her. She was a person who was grateful for life and inspired others to be as well.

At first I didn't care for the apparent lack of "flow" of the book, but then realized it was written by someone else about Sara based on their friendship and also Sara's blogs, etc on the internet. Once this was clear the book was really enjoyable and inspirational. You get to know Sara, her troubles and the genius of her attitude towards life's difficulties. I strongly recommend this to anyone with chronic or terminal illness or other serious trials. I found myself thinking over and over "WOW I wish I could think that way!" Thanks to the author who shared this story with those of us who did not know of Sara while she was on earth!

Great book!

Very good book that makes you stop and appreciate the small things in life! We take for granted our purpose in life is bigger than the day to day wants and our busy schedules. We need to stop and appreciate what we have today!
