If you only had a year to live, what would you do? In his work with the dying, author Stephen Levine observed the radical changes people can make in the face of death - how they heal relationships, open up to love, act on plans put off for years, even quit dead-end jobs. Levine challenged himself to live an entire year as if it were his last - and in this revealing narrative he shares what he learned. Through a series of month-by-month practices anyone can do, and including special meditations and exercises, A Year to Live teaches a way to live every day of your life with vivid fullness.

    " While interesting at times, this book is painfully dull the rest. Lofty ideas and complicated, grandiose language tainted what could have been an inspiring read. "

    " The concept isn't entirely new: "What would you do if you had only one year to live?" (And how do you know you have even that long?) Levine, who has worked for many years with the dying, describes his own experience in approaching life and death more mindfully. In the process, he offers specific recommendations for letting go of attachments, forgiving others and ourselves, and eliminating suffering without numbing ourselves to the entire range of feeling. The "soft-belly meditation" is one of the most simple yet powerful practices I've ever encountered. By showing us how to prepare for death, Levine makes a persuasive case that doing so will result in our being fully alive. "

    " Good to wake up and know that life is short - there is not enough love so bring some - don't waste a minute. "

    " Overall, I thought it was very uneven. A couple of chapters were thought-provoking and several sentences merited a highlighted. It was too stream-of-consciousness for my tastes and could have used a better editor to achieve a cohesive final product. "
