Most of us don't want to relive life's more difficult and upsetting moments, but not Joe Kita. Instead, Kita has done just that -- he has attempted to return to those moments of missed opportunities to try to redo them. Whether it's finding out if a girl he once liked would have gone out with him, or enrolling in a shooting school, or regaining his lost hair, Kita tries to see "what if." Kita also narrates this unusual memoir of regret and attempted redemption. In Kita's narration the listener can sense the joy, and other emotions, he experiences while trying to turn back the clock. Perhaps this book may best be described as a most unusual, but certainly interesting, "self-help" title. -- AudioFile
What a facinating premise! The author takes a look at his life and tries to correct the decision points that caused him later regret. As the story opens, he is trying out - again - for his high school basketball team. As we progress he tries to track down his high school sports car, researches hair replacement therapy, goes back to church, searches for the girl he was afraid to ask out in college, and so forth. I found it entertaining and insightful.
