Book Review: One Moment in Time by Glenn Snyder

From the Back Insert: On a stormy November evening Jack Barrett had plans to treat his best friend Travis to a night of fine dining and jazz.  As they neared their destination, a truck ran a red light, plowing through Jack’s car, and changing his life forever.  Jack found a new outlook on life, and took on adventures that made him one of the world’s most admired people.  With each step, Jack grew as a person and a leader; piecing together a family from different corners of the world, while risking himself and his family to save others.  Jack’s impact on the world was like no other, but in the end, when the lights and the cameras were gone, Jack was about to die, or was he?  Prepare yourself for a surprising ending that questions the very nature between life and death, reality and dream.

Thoughts on the book: This was a book I really enjoyed.  The book begins with Jack as a young guy, he was 23, I believe, and how he was excited to be celebrating his best friend’s birthday.

And then we are placed in an interview session where Jack relays his life back to the camera where we learned what happened after the accident and how his course of life came together from traveling to Italy to meet the love of his life to his wedding day to traveling to Mexico where his wife and him end up adopting a beautiful daughter, to back home where he ends up apart of the San Francisco earthquake trying to save as many lives in the process, to his days as a politician.

To me, there was nothing stopping this man, until, we get near the end of the book where lines are crossed and blurred, and you’re asking yourself, “What just happened?”

I love books that make me question everything, that make me really think about the events that were just laid out before me, and this book definitely did this.

My recommendation on a scale of 1 to 10? I’d give this book an 8.
