Publisher Description

After the publication of his wildly successful memoir, Blue Like Jazz, Donald Miller's life began to stall. During what should have been the height of his success, he found himself avoiding responsibility and even questioning the meaning of life. But when two producers proposed turning his memoir into a movie, Miller found himself launched into a new story filled with risk, possibility, beauty, and meaning.

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years chronicles Miller's rare opportunity to edit his life into a great story and to reinvent himself so nobody shrugs their shoulders when the credits roll. When his producers begin fictionalizing Don's life for the film--changing a meandering memoir into a structured narrative--the real-life Don starts a journey to make his actual life into a better story.

In this book, we have a front-row seat to Miller's journey--from sleeping all day to riding his bike across America, from living in romantic daydreams to facing love head-on, from wasting his money to founding a life-changing nonprofit.

Guided by a host of outlandish but very real characters, Miller teaches us:
Why God hasn't fixed us yetThe power of speaking something into nothingThe redemptive beauty that can come from tragic circumstancesHow to get a second chance at life the first time around
Through heart-wrenching honesty and hilarious self-inspection, Miller takes readers through the life that emerges when it turns from boring reality into a meaningful narrative.

Audio Distracting

I've listened to many audiobooks and have concluded that in most cases the author makes a poor reader. As reader, Mr. Miller speaks too fast and choosing 3/4 speed is not an option. I stopped before reaching end of chapter 1. Would be much improved with a professional reader. Too bad; maybe I'll check the book at my library.
