"Knowledge of our own mortality is the greatest gift God ever gives us," Quindlen writes, "because unless you know the clock is ticking, it is so easy to waste our days, our lives." This little book brought some giant nuggets into my life and living! I came across this as recommended by Sheryl Sandberg!

I've probably read this more times than any other book, in part because it is so short. You can expect to spend 15 minutes or less reading it. Though everything in this little gem may not ring true for you, there's bound to be something that will resonate.

If you like advice about working less and appreciating the world around you more, this book will be right up your alley. While work and a profession is important, in this short read, Quindlen focuses on the rest of life and what you're missing if you're not paying attention. This book would be good for recent graduates or people who are getting run down by the rat race.
