Drawing from his own brush with death, a Hollywood director shares what he's learned about love, fear, and the true meaning of happiness in a series of uplifting reflections

Just about everything today comes with an operating manual—from your computer to your car, from your cell phone to your iPad. Is it possible that life comes with an operating manual as well?
That’s the simple but powerful premise of Tom Shadyac’s inspiring and provocative first book. Written as a series of essays and dialogues, we are invited into a conversation that is both challenging and empowering. The question is: Can we discern what is written inside this operating manual and garner the courage to live in accordance with its precepts?

About the Author

Tom Shadyac is the film director behind such blockbuster hits as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective; The Nutty Professor; Liar, Liar; Patch Adams; and Bruce Almighty. A recent brush with death compelled Tom to make his latest film, I AM, a documentary that asks some of today’s most profound thinkers two questions: "What’s wrong with the world?" and "What can we do about it?"
