I Was Hooked From the Opening Paragraph

I don’t read many memoirs but I was intrigued with the concept. This author decided to write 365 Thank Yous and learned some surprising lessons about life and the healing power of gratitude.
 
The first chapter is called “The Lowest Day.” Here’s how this book begins, “In December 2007, I felt my life was at an irreversible nadir. My law firm was losing money and losing its lease. I was going through a difficult divorce, was completely out of funds, and was living in a small, stuffy apartment where I often slept on the floor under an ancient air conditioner. My sons had grown distant from me. A horrible year was ending, with promises that things would soon be even worse.”
 
Just like a skilled novelist who plunges his characters into high drama, Kralik told his personal story with the same powerful language. Whether I wanted to do so or not, I was compelled to read every page of this book. The book is fascinating and filled with valuable lessons and insight for every reader. I highly recommend this book for an infusion of hope mixed with practical application for every reader.
