After a near-tragic diving experience at the age of 19 in 1987 Keoghan got to thinking about all of the things he wanted to do before he died. There were so many that he began a wish list then embarked on a series of adventures ranging from enjoying a five-star meal on the top pf an erupting volcano to getting married underwater. He found that while often off-the-wall, quirky and sometimes even downright dangerous, each experience enriched his life in unexpected ways and evolved a philosophy focussed on getting the most out of life. Through this book Keoghan helps the reader to start thinking about experiences they've always hankered after, and to start their own list. Drawing on his own amazing adventures as well as the stories of ordinary people who have taken up his challenge, NOW is a call to action that will inspire the reader to: Test their physical limits, venture off the beaten track, rediscover their childhood, shed their inhibitions, get in touch with nature, rekindle romance in thier life and explore their creative side.
