five star customer review for on fire by john oleary

John’s much-anticipated first book, ON FIRE: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life was an instant #1 National Bestseller! It is already being translated into 7 languages and has sold more than 40,000 copies since it was published in March (a stunning number considering most books sell fewer than 10,000 copies in their first year).

    I was diagnosed this year with an autoimmune disease that is progressive and incurable. I happened upon your book in a Barnes and Noble and
    I not only took the book home with me, I took you home with me. The words in your book completely changed my perspective on my “death sentence”
    and left me committed to living a life that matters. I hope one day to be able to see one of your presentations. Until then, thank you for writing this
    book. Anyone facing something hard that can never be changed needs a copy. I cannot imagine that I will ever be without a copy close by so that
    I can turn to to as my survival guide. The bottom line for me as my takeaway, “God Always Has the Last Word, Always.”

    It’s one of only 3 books in my life that I started reading and could not put down. I am 66 years old. I had a box of Kleenex and used the whole box, not from just crying, but also from laughing and considering. Best book I have read in many, many years. Love and hugs to John for sharing his love to all.

    Love this book! It was gifted to me. I’m reading it again for the third time. After receiving it, I read it within 48 hours. Then I read it again, section by section, over the summer. Each chapter, each section speaks directly to me. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to live an inspired life.

    I listen to John O’Leary speak in Richmond today and I have to say he had one of the most inspirational stories I have ever heard. He is a truly amazing person from his charm to sense of humor. May God continue to bless this man.

  • Jim Rendon, author of Upside: The New Science of Post-Traumatic Growth

    When  he  was  only  nine  years  old  John  O’Leary  survived  a  fire  that  should  have  killed  him.  But   as  he  quickly  learned,  surviving  is  only  the  first  step.  In  the  ensuing  years  O’Leary  and  his  family   figured  out  how  to  move  forward  in  life,  how  to  get  past  the  bitterness,  anger  and  depression  to   thrive.  O’Leary  weaves  his  own  riveting  story  around  his  hard-­won  lessons  about  how  to  engage   with  the  world,  to  demand  the  most  from  yourself  and  how  to  live  a  full  and  meaningful  life.  On   Fire  is  true-­life  story  of  post-­traumatic  growth  that  everyone  can  learn  from.

    John  is  the  embodiment  of  someone  who  made  a  powerful  choice  to  not  be  defined  by  his   challenges.  This  book  is  a  reminder  to  us  all  that  no  matter  what  happens  in  life,  we  deserve   and  are  capable  of  discovering  our  passion,  pursuing  our  dreams  and  making  a  meaningful   impact  on  the  world.

  • Rory Vaden, Cofounder of Southwestern Consulting and New York Time bestselling author of Take the Stairs

  • Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times bestselling author of Hands Free Life

    I  can  count  on  one  hand  the  number  of  books  I’ve  read  that  created  an  urgency  to  push  away   my  fears  and  past  mistakes  to  step  fully  into  life.  Drawn  in  by  John’s  incredible  story  and   conversational  writing  style,  On  Fire  helped  me  see  life’s  trials  as  steppingstones  to  an   enhanced  version  of  me.  John’s  powerful  truths  enabled  me  to  stop  seeing  what  I  can’t  do  and   see  the  opportunities  still  available.  On  Fire  offers  a  redemptive  invitation  to  all,  leading  us  to   believe  that  no  matter  how  many  times  we’ve  fall  down,  no  matter  how  dismal  the  current   situation,  the  best  is  yet  to  come.

    On  Fire,  by  John  O’Leary,  celebrates  the  beauty  of  LIFE!    Through  courageously  sharing  his   own  pain  and  devastating  loss,  O’Leary  reveals  how  crucial  it  is  for  us  to  keep  moving  forward   after  a  setback  or  trial—still  hope,  still  dream,  still  see  the  possibilities  before  us.    Eventually  we   must  all  make  the  choice  to  truly  live  or  just  exist.  A  magnificent  and  inspiring  read!

  • Joe Buck, Fox Sports

    Fast  paced,  emotional,  and  surprisingly  funny,  On  Fire  is  an  amazing  reminder  that,  as  John   says,  we  might  not  be  able  to  choose  the  path  we  walk  in  life,  but  we can  always  choose  the   manner  in  which  we  walk  it.

  • Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, author of New York Times bestsellers Daring Greatly and Rising Strong

    This  is  a  book  about  coming  alive  –  about  practicing  courage  and  fully  showing  up  at  home,   work,  and  with  the  people  we  love.  John  is  a  storyteller,  change-­maker,  and  cage-­rattler.   Reading  this  book  is  like  having  a  good  friend  look  you  square  in  the  eye  and  say,  ‘The  time  to   be  brave  is  now.’
