Last year, while travelling to Baden-Baden to speak at a conference, I decided to pick up a book at the airport bookstore in Atlanta. Something not related to health, science or business. The book I picked was The 5 People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Alblom, the author of Tuesday’s With Morrie.
I was so impressed by the book, I decided to buy a dozen of them and give it as my Christmas gift to some of my good friends. It is an easy read, but it is so uplifting and well written that I had to write about it here.
Without giving anything away, it is a story about a man who worked in what he thought was a meaningless job. Instead he finds out that he touched more lives than he could have ever imagined. If you don’t shed a tear while reading the last few chapters, than you’ve lost your heart.
If you can only read one book this year, read this one.
