Inhaltsangabe

Joe Kita has had a good life. He has been happily married for more than 15 years and has two beautiful children. He is a successful journalist. He has lots of friends. Still, nearing 40, he wondered about missed opportunities: What would have happened if I had asked out that co-ed? What if I didn't get cut from my high school basketball team? What if I'd been nicer to my dog?

Afraid of having the same pangs of regret at age 80, and no longer satisfied leaving good times to chance, Kita deliberately revisited 20 crossroads in his life and tried to relive them. In Another Shot, he chronicles his crazy year with humor and inspiration. Along the way, he gets to the bottom of what happened to his first car - a beautiful 1979 Camaro - and ponders whether choices really matter and what determines one's place in the world. Some of Kita's adventures border on the absurd: Never having the chance to fire a real gun, he enrolls in a shooting school. Not ever being filthy rich, Joe hires a Romanian butler to experience the lifestyle. Other stops on his journey are more common to men his age: He's lost his hair and he wants it back. His sexual peak came and went without him.

Regardless of the original regret and its final "outcome," each experience alters Kita's perspective and will alter yours, too. A poetic narrative organized by regret, Another Shot provides an insightful glimpse into the life and mind of a regular guy. It's a tumultuous and sometimes uncomfortable journey. But Joe Kita is hilarious, insightful, and - most of all - inspiring enough to make you ponder: Why not give it another shot?
