In October 2003 Patti Digh's stepfather was diagnosed with lung cancer. He died 37 days later. The timeframe made an impression on her. What emerged was a commitment to ask herself every morning: What would I be doing today if I had only 37 days left to live? The answers changed her life and led to this new kind of book. Part meditation, part how-to guide, part memoir, Life Is a Verb is all heart.

Digh identifies six core practices to jump-start a meaningful life: Say Yes, Trust Yourself, Slow Down, Be Generous, Speak Up, and Love More. Within this framework, she supplies 37 edgy, funny, and literary life stories, each followed by a do it now 10-minute exercise as well as a practice to try for 37 days - and perhaps the rest of your life.
