Obit: Inspiring Stories of Ordinary People Who Led Extraordinary Lives (07 Edition)by Jim Sheeler
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Like Everything I Really Needed to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten, or Tuesdays with Morrie, Obit is a wise and deeply moving book that illuminates the human condition. For ten years, Jim Sheeler has scoured Colorado looking for subjects whose stories he will tell for the last time. Most are unknowns, but that doesn?t mean they?re nobodies. Their obituaries are sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, and chock full of life lessons as taught by the people we all pass on the street every day. And thanks to Sheeler?s brilliant and compassionate prose, it?s not too late to meet them.
A feast of lives well-lived: some mundane, some comic and, yes, some tragic, but all hell-bent on fulfillment of their time in this world.--"Rocky Mountain News."
