When Chris Licht learned about the survival rates for people who have suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage, he knew how fortunate he was to be alive. The executive producer of MSNBC's Morning Joe program had just wrapped up another show in April of 2010 when he heard something pop inside his head. The 38 year old had been in perfect health--in fact had never been hospitalized-- but decided to go to the emergency room at George Washington University hospital. Thus began his fight to survive. Chris Licht writes an honest memoir about his life and the realization of his childhood dream to work in television. But after his recovery, he began to assess what was really important in life. He shares these thoughts in this moving book.
