Summary:

Inspired by the most popular article ever in Men’s Health magazine, Joe Kita shares an uproarious journey to be enjoyed by men and women alike.

We all have regrets. Rarely do we have an opportunity to discover “what could have been.” After turning 40, Men’s Health writer Joe Kita set out to relive 20 personal regrets. He recounts his adventures in Another Shot, the hilarious yet poignant successor to Wisdom of Our Fathers and The Father’s Guide to the Meaning of Life. Dismayed that he’s not the lover he wants to be, he and his wife go to sex camp. Bemoaning having sold his first love, a powerhouse Camaro, he and a private eye spend six months trying to locate the car. Still smarting from the sting of getting cut from his high school basketball team, he convinces his alma mater’s coach to let him try out for the squad again–20 years later. Kita is a superb storyteller with an outstanding media personality and a rapidly growing following. His quests for redemption are unique, his reasons for doing so easily understood by all. At once witty and profound, Another Shot speaks to everyone who has ever harbored regrets or wished for a second chance.

    Read the previous review by Shane. I could not say it any better. If I could think of one other thing to add it would be that his review is an under-exaggeration of how good this book was. A must listen to !!!

    I now OWN this book. LIFE CHANGING. Kita is great. His voice is great. The book is GREAT. Within minutes after starting it, this book had me in tears. Two minutes later I was laughing so hard I had to pull off the road. Stories about his "re-tryout" for his basketball team at High School and talking to his dead dad just rung my emotional being from start to finish. I couldn't believe how accurate for my life his accounts of his own were. Just fantastic. GREAT. WONDERFUL. What a book. If I could think of any other good things to say, I'd say it. Just a GREAT READ/LISTEN.
