After writing a successful memoir, Donald Miller's life stalled. During what should have been the height of his success, he found himself unwilling to get out of bed, avoiding responsibility, even questioning the meaning of life. But when two movie producers proposed turning his memoir into a movie, he 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, to reinvent himself so nobody shrugs their shoulders when the credits roll. Through heart-wrenching honesty and hilarious self-inspection, Donald Miller takes readers through the life that emerges when it turns from boring reality into meaningful narrative.
Miller goes from sleeping all day to riding his bike across America, from living in romantic daydreams to fearful encounters with love, from wasting his money to founding a nonprofit with a passionate cause. Guided by a host of outlandish but very real characters, Miller shows us how to get a second chance at life the first time around. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years is a rare celebration of the beauty of life.
Donald Miller is the author of several books, including the bestsellers Blue Like Jazz and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. He helps people live a better story at www.creatingyourlifeplan.com and helps leaders grow their businesses at www.storybrand.com. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee, with his wife, Betsy, and their chocolate lab, Lucy.

The Chapter How Jason Saved His Family is incredible. Every man who has a family member who needs help should read this. It's not easy, mushy advice. It's a call to action that would be difficult and challenging--and a call to action that could save your family.
jdvossAbilene, TXAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Is your life a story worth telling?December 26, 2010jdvossAbilene, TXAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In Donald Miller's book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, the author takes us through the process of editing a life in order to write a story, his life to be exact. As always, Miller mixes humor with insight to share his wisdom about how to intentionally live a life as a story with a purpose.
I love the fact that Miller is the reader for his own book. When the author is the reader, I know that the inflection given to the reading is what was intended. Sarcasm and passion can travel only so far across the written word, but when it is read aloud, new depth and understanding is revealed.
It's almost too easy to listen to this audiobook. It is deceptive in its simplicity when the concepts and ideas are so powerful and profound. I think the worth of books like this lie in the power to actually affect the way you look at life or live life after the last page is read. Things that fit into this category are not common. When something comes along that actually changes you, it is remarkable.
I believe my life is different after reading this book. I want to purposefully create a story for myself and my family. Miller paints a beautiful picture of a scene after death where we sit with God under a tree and share with Him the stories from our lives. I pray that I have many stories to share with God and to hear Him say, "Yes, I remember that. I was there. These are good stories!"
