Full Tilt Living is a carpe-diem-pedal-to-the-metal-grab-it-by-the-throat-suck-out-the-marrow approach to living life. Its about finding the juicy parts, Maureen Smith writes. It came about as I looked for ways to talk about how to make life better. Because this is a pretty challenging time to be around. Things move fast. Stress is our constant companion. Smith leads us to an understanding of how important it is to fully experience life on an everyday basis, and in both the highs and the lows. Smith is no nave self-help guru. She knows that life lived completely contains a lot of emotionally and mentally challenging momentsand lots of opportunities. Some of the opportunities in this book include: finding your natural fuel, living in in-between moments, changing habits, succeeding at failure, falling in love with yourself, picking up cues, and paying attention to angels in your lifewhatever form they come in. Stories, exercises, and plain-talking advice abounds here. Pick them like cherries from a tree to create your own Full Tilt life.
