Written by Deborah Ziegler, the mother of Brittany Maynard—a twenty-nine-year-old woman with a terminal brain tumor—this touching and beautiful memoir captures and celebrates her daughter’s spirit and the mostly untold story of Brittany's last year of life as she chose her right to die with dignity, a journey that inspired millions. "Brittany’s story…will have a ready audience, and Deborah’s frank account of their struggles will be comforting to others facing this difficult decision" (Booklist). In this poignant, powerful book, Deborah Ziegler makes good on the promise she made to her only child: that she would honor her daughter and carry forward her legacy by sharing their story and offering hope, empowerment, and inspiration to the growing tens of millions of people who are struggling with end-of-life issues.

On 6 October 2014, a video of Brittany Maynard was posted to YouTube. The first words she utters, “The thoughts that go through your mind when you find out you have so little time is everything you need to say to everyone that you love.” Wearing a simple black sweater, face rounded and puffy from the prescribed steroids to alleviate the pain, Brittany explains why she has chosen to end her life by her own hand, rather than waiting for the brain tumour to rob her of everything that defines who she is. Less than a month later, Brittany died in her bed surrounded by close family and friends, having taken the lethal drugs provided to her by the State of Ohio in accordance with their ‘Death with Dignity’ laws. Wild and Precious Life is Brittany’s incredibly moving and heart-breaking true story as told by her mother, who travelled with her on the painful journey towards accepting and embracing mortality. Interspersed and paralleled with memories from Brittany’s childhood, this book examines and highlights the complex relationships between mother and daughter, life and death, and holding on or letting go.

Many successful people find themselves at point in their life where they know it's time to make a major change. Most likely, they know what that change is, yet somehow find themselves unable to make the leap. They are creative and smart but find themselves off track or trapped by their own success, not knowing how to make the changes they deeply desire. Life coach, Jesse Gros, shares his story of the challenge to get out of his head and into his heart to create a life that had been waiting for him on the sidelines for almost two decades. He shows readers how to access their inner wisdom, and motivation to follow their true path. Jesse's voice, charisma and energy come through in his writing. He shares his journey over the last 20 years, including leaving medicine and walking away from corporate America. It includes stories about courageous clients and inspirational people he has met along the way. You will meet Jill S. who left her career and became a National Geographic photographer; David Rollins, who raised $5 million to start a non-profit; and Briana who had a surprise life-changing discovery while on retreat in Peru. Jesse shares with you his key learnings about how he built Insight Adventures - his life coaching and international retreat business in the middle of a recession, with no prior experience. You will read travel stories from Nepal, India and around the world. Also included are very personal stories about healing from both his life and from clients who have graciously agreed to let him share their experiences.

Hillary Clinton said that Find a Way would stay with her through the general election: “When you’re facing big challenges in your life, you can think about Diana Nyad getting attacked by the lethal sting of box jellyfishes. And nearly anything else seems doable in comparison.” On September 2, 2013, at the age of sixty-four, Diana Nyad emerged onto the sands of Key West after swimming 111 miles, nation to nation, Cuba to Florida, in an epic feat of both endurance and human will, in fifty-three hours. Diana carried three poignant messages on her way across this stretch of shark-infested waters, and she spoke them to the crowd in her moment of final triumph: 1. Never, ever give up. 2. You’re never too old to chase your dreams. 3. It looks like a solitary sport, but it’s a Team. Millions of people around the world cheered this maverick on, moved by her undeniable tenacity to be the first to make the historic crossing without the aid of a shark cage. At the end of her magnificent journey, after thirty-five years and four crushing failures, the public found hope in Diana’s perseverance. They were inspired by her mantra—find a way—that led her to realize a dream in her sixties that had eluded her as a young champion in peak form. In Find a Way, Diana engages us with a unique, passionate story of this heroic adventure and the extraordinary life experiences that have served to carve her unwavering spirit. Diana was a world champion in her twenties, setting the record for swimming around Manhattan Island, along with other ocean-swim achievements, all of which rendered her a star at the time. Back then, she made the first attempt at the Mount Everest of swims, the Cuba Swim, but after forty-two hours and seventy-nine miles she was blown desperately off course. Her dream unfulfilled, she didn’t swim another stroke for three decades. Why, at sixty-four, was she able to achieve what she could not at thirty? How did her dramatic failures push her to success? What inner resources did Diana draw on during her long days and nights of training, and how did the power of the human spirit trump both the limitations of the body and the forces of nature across this vast, dangerous wilderness? This is the gripping story of an athlete, of a hero, of a bold mind. This is a galvanizing meditation on facing fears, engaging in our lives full throttle, and living each day with no regrets. From the Hardcover edition.
