"What I Learned When I Almost Died" by Chris Licht


This is the true account of Chris Licht’s experience of having a brain hemorrhage. He wrote What I Learned When I Almost Died to give others the benefit of the life lessons he learned from having a near-death experience. Basically, he learned his family and friends were more important than his job. I think most people already know this, but he was a TV producer who feared losing his job--a TV producer.

By reading this book, I did learn that if I ever get a really unusual pain in my head, I need to go right to a hospital emergency room and say “I do not get headaches and this is the worst headache of my life.”
“. . . which is an informal code within the medical profession. Any decent ER would interpret the phrases to mean I was not a habitual complainer, I was in the midst of something rare, pay attention, give me a CAT scan.” P.7-8

I could have skipped this book and not missed much.
