 "This book is a beacon of light and a touchstone for the timeless values of leading a purposeful life."

--From the Foreword by Senator Joseph Lieberman

There's not one person alive who hasn't confronted their own mortality. Each of us, at some point, wakes up to the reality that our time on Earth is limited. But how do we lead our lives with a sense of urgency every day? How do we develop the courage to make choices not based on pressure but on principle? How do we create the sacred space to reflect on who we are and who we want to be so we can realize our innermost goals and dreams?

What Will They Say About You When You're Gone? points the way. Esteemed Rabbi Daniel Cohen will help you rise above the distractions to tap into the best version of yourself. Through a unique blend of storytelling, practical exercises, and profound wisdom, he will teach you seven transformative principles to reverse engineer your life so that you are living with purpose and passion, so that the person you are today more closely aligns with the person you aspire to be.

This is one of the few books that has the power to change your life! Rabbi Cohen is the real deal. He is a true inspiration for how to live a life that leaves a meaningful legacy. I have had the great fortune of meeting him twice and after hearing him speak both times I have felt greatly inspired to live a life of greater purpose. The premise of this book is based on going to a funeral and hearing some nice words about the person who has passed away and thinking “I hope they say nice things like that about me at my funeral”. Rabbi Cohen challenges us “What will they say about you when you are gone?”. The purpose of this book is to help you reverse engineer your life so that this question will have rich answers when your time here on earth is over. Rabbi Cohen identifies seven transformative principles to help you live with more purpose, positivity and passion. It’s not just a great read, it is an action plan for your life that provides thought-provoking questions, strategies and challenges. By reflecting on the principles and putting them into action, it truly has the power to transform your life. A key inspiration of the book is to look for your “Elijah moments” – opportunities to take a few minutes in order to help make someone’s day. If we spend time doing this every day, it has the power to transform the way that we look at the world and our interactions (and purpose) within it. If this is the only insight that gets implemented from the book it will truly give your life meaning and purpose each day. This is only one of many important teachings in this great book. There are very few books that I will read twice, but I already know that I will plan to spend a lot of time with book and will read it over and over. It is well written with numerous anecdotes, quotes, interviews, insights about the Jewish faith and tradition (which I found fascinating since I am Christian) and jam-packed with real life examples to help bring the principles to life. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from netgalley.com in exchange for my fair and unbiased review. However, I have already purchased a hard copy for myself to keep (and scribble in) and four additional copies for family and friends. Highly recommended!
