Review and Giveaway!! Unfinished Business by Lee Kravitz

I was asked to review a copy of Unfinished Business by Lee Kravitz, and I have to say I am really glad I did!! It came to me at a time of my life when I have been really reflecting on things, and some of the topics really hit home for me.

Lee Kravitz was fired from his job as an editor of Parade Magazine. He was an admitted workaholic, claiming that work consumed him. Now, being out of work consumed him, and he came to the realization that he needed to retrace some steps and reconnect with a part of himself that he lost while lost in all that work. He took a year, and reconnected to family, old friends, and attended to several other pieces of "Unfinished Business" in his life.

While my reflecting lately deals with an entirely different scenario, it was really interesting to look at his take on life, and what he needed to do to grow as an individual, as well as become a better husband and father. It makes me wonder what I would do if I were to choose pieces from my past and take care of some unfinished business.

This was a very powerful read for me, but it read easily. I sailed through it even though there were some very deep and meaningful topics. I think this book is a great way to get you thinking!!

I'm honored to have received an extra copy of Unfinished Business to giveaway!! I'll also throw in my gently read copy and pick two winners for this book!! It's open to anyone, and all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog. Please leave a valid email address with your post, otherwise you'll be taken out of the give. I have to be able to get a hold of you, right? The contest runs until Thursday, July 29th, and I'll announce the winners on Friday, July 30!! Good luck to everyone!!!

Also, take a look at Lee's Blog, and this video.

I agree with Lee on his blog post MyUnfinishedBusiness.com of July 19,2010, it’s never too late. Just a comforting words helps no matter how long it;s been. Also any stories or antidotes about the lost loved ones really helps. I know this because I lost my parents when I was a teenager and I lost dear friends, and last I lost my husband nine years ago, after 36 wonderful years of wedded bliss. It’s never too late.

His book sounds like an rewarding read and I would love to win the book.

I read the blog post by Lee and was most interested in his change of heart and outlook. It was fascinating to learn about his book which would be extraordinary to read and think about. My husband died suddenly young and I on my own as a young widow and have pondered life and its many meanings and the future. Thanks for featuring this book. rojosho(at)hotmail(dot)com
