From renowned adventurer and rising television star, Phil Keoghan, No Opportunity Wasted: Creating a List for Life combines the self-improvement appeal of an inspirational book with the adrenaline-rush of an adventure story. Taking the reader on a series of exciting journeys, Phil sets forth his dynamic and uplifting philosophy, and in a step-by-step manner, shows the reader how to put that philosophy into effect by creating a personalized "List for Life."

In dramatic narrative form, Keoghan transports the reader from Yucatan Jungle to the African Congo, from the depths of an underwater cave to the top of an erupting volcano. But this is no armchair traveler book. It is an urgent call to action, inspiring and enabling people to overcome fear and seek out memorable experiences of their own. With his fresh and compelling N.O.W. philosophy, this is a book that will help us all dream more freely and live more fully.

Praise For No Opportunity Wasted: Eight Ways to Create a List for the Life You Want

“No Opportunity Wasted is about learning how to live while you still have the chance; about letting go of the handrails; taking off your tie (and maybe taking off a lot more, while you're at it); swerving off that predictable road you've been following for years--onto a strange and bumpy path that just might, with a bit of luck, get you lost. It's about taking the time to enjoy experiences you've denied yourself. But it is also about sharing experiences with other people you don't know . . . beginning with yourself.” —Phil Keoghan
