    Eddie is your ordinary 9-5 guy; he’s an old amusement park maintenance worker – a wounded war veteran – who thinks he has lived an uninspired life. When he is met by death while trying to save a little girl on his 83rd birthday, Eddie discovers that Heaven is a place where your life is “explained to you” by five people you met in your life on Earth.

    The book tackles the issue of life after death and the true meaning of life in a poignant way that makes it a must-read. While being taken through his life – from childhood through old age, Eddie learns about the meaning of his life, what he was supposed to have learned, and his real purpose on the planet. In a way, The Five People You Meet in Heaven takes lyrical writing and affecting themes of Tuesday with Morrie (also by Mitch Albom) to the next level.

    Who are your five?

    A fascinating and compelling read, The 5 People You Meet in Heaven reminds us of our true purpose in life, what really matters here on earth. It shifts constantly between Eddies life here on earth and heaven, giving us a chance to ask the right questions. If indeed there are 5 people in the afterlife, who would they be? Would you be one of the five people in someone else life, and who would that be? The message is clear: we should appreciate people in our lives before it’s too late. We are all interconnected and expression of gratitude is paramount..

    Today, we are often caught up in climbing the ladder of success, building immense wealth, and indulging in material pleasures of the world because society has deemed that to be the determining factors of happiness. As a result, we may end up forgetting some basic but important values about life, love and relationships. What should we really be placing value on? And how can we reach so called self actualisation in a way that benefits not just ourselves?

    In What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey, the legendary talk show host shares candid and sometimes harsh life lessons she has learned over the years that every reader will be able to identify with at some stage in their life. Most importantly, it is a book that teaches us to be better versions of ourselves.
