Why do we have regrets and what can we do about it? We all want to live a life without regrets. Whenever we do something, we wish we hadn't or don't do something we wish we had, we vow it won't happen again. But why do we have regrets in the first place? Because we become prisoners of habit and circumstance, we take people in our lives for granted and fail to be true to ourselves. We stop growing and learning, become self-absorbed and judgmental, and lose touch with our innate goodness.
Inspired by his final conversation with a dying friend, Marc Muchnick's No More Regrets! is specifically designed to help you avoid these pitfalls. Just one or two of the 30 ways to greater happiness and meaning outlined here could potentially change your life.
Muchnick's suggestions are straightforward, thoughtful, and easy to implement - often just a matter of shifting perspective and seeing the world differently.

What I thought was useful: There were a lot of good tips in this book on recognizing your regrets and how to acknowledge them. The first part of the book was very useful and filled with some very common sense approaches to learning to let go of regrets. This book was all about living your best life from this point forward!
What I thought was lacking: This book was a little bit repetitive. It had a lot of very well-known approaches in it but nothing seemed to be "new" or "unique". The way the book was laid out also seemed to be a bit out of order to me but I think that is because of the audio.
Audiobook Review: Marc read the book perfectly but whoever published the audio didn't do a real great job with layout. There are 3 times in the 2.5 hours where it appears they are skipping chapters but they aren't really---just reading a bunch of chapters and chapter titles. It was distracting.
Why I gave it a 3: I did find some of the information really useful and felt all the tips were good to know. I just didn't find the book mind-blowing. I also think I would have liked it more in paper book format!
Who I would recommend it too: Anyone looking for a simple, straight forward approach to recognizing and living with regrets. I would recommend getting the print copy though--the audio was a little distracting.
