The Five Times I Met Myself 
"The Five Times I Met Myself"
James L. Rubart

What if you met your twenty-three-year-old self in a dream? What would you say?
Brock Matthews’ once promising life is unraveling. His coffee company. His marriage.
So when he discovers his vivid dreams—where he encounters his younger self—might let him change his past mistakes, he jumps at the chance. The results are astonishing, but also disturbing.
Because getting what Brock wants most in the world will force him to give up the one thing he doesn’t know how to let go . . . and his greatest fear is that it’s already too late.

"The Five Times I Met Myself" was very different yet captivating at the same time.  It was a good different.  There was so much imagination throughout the whole thing and at the same you wonder if this could actually happen.  

While reading this book, I was reminded of the movie "It's A Wonderful Life". While the main character always exists in this book, he is still given a gift to see how different things could be.  So he uses that gift and soon realizes that things may have been pretty good as they were.  

This book helped me realize that even though we would like to go back and change some things, we may be taking for granted the good things that we already have.  Also, to make the right decisions.  Brock had a lot of problems with making the wrong decisions, but through the gift that he was given, he finally figured it out.  We must be careful and use wisdom in the decisions that we make as well.  Our decisions not only affect our lives, but those around us.  It really makes you stop and put things into perspective and make sure your priorities are right.

I have to admit, I wasn't sure about this book at first.  It took me awhile to actually start reading it, but once I started, I didn't want to put it down.  I was hooked from the very beginning!

"The Five Times I Met Myself" is a very well written, very thought provoking book.  I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!
