Publisher's Summary

In 1988, 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. Until next time.

Whoa and wow

Very interesting and engaging premise especially for us middle aged people. Would you live your life again if you could but try to make different choices? I think I’ll just focus on making this life count.

Amazing Story!

I love this book, and I did not want it to end. The idea of reliving your life and making different choices is a fascinating concept.

I literally cried, and reflected deeply on my life

This is one of my favorite books of all time. There are very few books that make you really, truly assess your life and the world around you, really think of your own personal priorities and what you want to make of now until you're dead. This book is one of them.

Imagine what you would do with years of your life to live over and over again. Imagine what you would lose every time you started over and what that would mean for the next time. What lessons would you learn? What lessons can we learn just by imagining that now?

I'm still astounded by what the author was able to create with this book. I truly feel like I should listen to it every year just to remind myself how important it is to be intentional in every day.

Can't recommend this book enough - you won't regret a moment of it.

Great Book! Happy it's went to audio!

I read this book years ago, was so happy they made an audio book version. While I had picked it up in audio book format, took a while to getting around to listing to it as I had read and reread the book a few times over the last few decades. Still, it was worth the wait.

The story was not what I expected but that is what I loved about it. the beginning seemed stretched out. Half way is where things really got good. Worth the listen! #Audible20 #Sweepstakes

Interesting idea

Like the movie Groundhog Day, you get to keep trying different ways to go through your life, though for years, rather than a specific day. Makes you think about all the different choices you make in life and how it can change. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

The Choices We Make

I chose this book after a suggestion for other time-travel books. The premise was interesting enough--a man "dies" but wakes up as freshman in college. He then lives his life according to what he knows already. I liked it because it played out different scenarios based on his choices. It makes one think about what we would do if we could get a do-over. It had a few strange parts, but overall, I would recommend this book. It was a fun trip back in time.

Reads more like a "Dear penthouse..." letter

I could only stand 13 chapters of listening to the protagonist hump his way through time. At one point a really began to wonder if this book was written by hormone driven teenager. If the writer had spent half as much time working on a real plot vs. finding a way to have Jeff bang the universe, it could have been a decent book. Only plus was the narrator was decent.
