  • Additional Information
    • Abstract:
      Summary: "As the obituary writer in a spectacularly beautiful but often dangerous spit of land in Alaska, Heather Lende knows something about last words and lives well lived. Now she's distilled what she's learned about how to live a more exhilarating and meaningful life into three words: find the good. It's that simple--and that hard.... [Her book] offers up short chapters that help us unlearn the habit ... of seeing only the negatives. Lende reminds us that we can choose to see any event ... as an opportunity to find the good."--Front flap of jacket.
