When Miller turns his first memoir into a movie, he learns some interesting things about what makes a good story. In this memoir, he takes those lessons and applies them to real life. Unfortunately the wonderful things he has to say about getting out there and living your story instead of sitting on the couch watching tv all day are sullied by his forays into excitement for the Christian after-life. A good example of such a wandering is the time he states that people who have bad lives will enjoy the after-life the most, so they're actually lucky. It's such a logical fallacy that I was left distrusting everything he had to say. It's too bad Miller is so caught up in the after-life. His life now would be even better if he wasn't.

Check out my full review.
