Book Review - Moment Maker
About the Book
Chances are you’ve heard of musician, thought leader, blogger and communicator Carlos Whittaker and just didn’t realize it. You may have heard of him through a certain viral video that received a People’s Choice Award, his segment on TLC’s "LA Ink" or maybe through his popular blog. Whatever the outlet, one thing’s for certain – Carlos Whittaker knows how to make big moments in his life. On April 1, Whittaker brings it all together in his first book aptly titled, “Moment Maker – You Can Live Your Life or It Will Live You.” With life happening all around, what you get out of it depends on how engaged and deliberate you are. In “Moment Maker,” Whittaker shares how he has learned to make each moment count and how those moments add up to a life rich with meaning and full of purpose.

Through lessons and application, Whittaker explains his methodology for living intentionally and claiming moments that touch the lives of others whether they be his family, his friends, his colleagues or complete strangers.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that makes you rethink the moments that are important in your life and how you should really step back and re-assess how you are "living" in the moment. I know that in my life, things get crazy and I get drawn into work and technology and I miss out on some of the moments with my kids as well as with others and this really is not what I want, but it happens. The author of this book allows you to break through this and examine how you can make changes to better get connected with the world around you so that you do not miss out. Very well written and one that I would highly recommend to all!
