About this product
|An illustrated collection of answers to the age-old question, What do you want to do before you die? as posed by four twenty-something guys known as The Buried Life. In 2006, four regular guys-Ben, Dave, Duncan, and Jonnie-made a "bucket list" of 100 things they wanted to do before they died. They set off on their journey, and for every item they crossed off their list, they helped a stranger achieve one of their goals. Five years later, with an MTV show and 1.2 million loyal Facebook followers under their belt, they've turned their attention to crossing off their list item #19: Write a Bestselling Book. What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? is an illustrated collection of real people's dreams. Two hundred moving, imaginative, amusing, and thought-provoking goals ("I want to accept my body the way it is"; I want to longboard down an active volcano"; "I'd like a second chance") are brought to life through original illustrations. Peppered throughout are stories of the boys' own journey, sometimes poignant, often hilarious, and occasionally illegal, but never dull. Readers will find something to take away-touching stories, nuggets of wisdom-on every page. This is an inspirational book for a new generation: visual and sassy, lighthearted but substantive, encouraging without being preachy.|
