Mock, Janice - Life's Hourglass: A Memoir of Chasing Success at a Cost

SKU: 9781647420055
When Janice Mock’s stage four cancer diagnosis causes her to examine her career as a successful trial lawyer and the relentless drive for wealth and excess that corporate America promotes, she comes to the realization that she must change in order to make the most of the rest of her life.

When Janice learns that she has stage four cancer, she feels the sand in life’s hourglass begin to escape through her fingers. A successful trial lawyer, she’s spent her entire adulthood competing, clock watching, and chasing the money while life slipped by unnoticed. But this diagnosis leaves her questioning whether it’s all been worth it.

In this candid memoir, Janice reflects on the choices she made throughout her life to bring her to this point. She offers an insider’s view of Big Law and questions corporate America’s relationship with wealth and excess. She examines how one’s longing for approval—from family or elsewhere—comes at the expense of knowing what we want and being our true selves. And she discovers that the remedy is a long, hard road to travel.

Earnest, tender, and eye-opening, Life’s Hourglass inspires readers to ask themselves, “How do I want to spend the days I have remaining?”
