Publisher's Summary

In the best-selling tradition of Brene Brown's Daring Greatly and Nick Vujicic's Life Without Limits comes a rousing seven-step plan for living a life on fire, filled with hope and possibility - from an inspirational speaker who survived a near-fatal fire at the age of nine and now runs a successful business inspiring people all around the world.

When John O'Leary was nine years old, he was almost killed in a devastating house fire. With burns on 100 percent of his body, O'Leary mustered an almost unimaginable amount of inner strength just to survive the ordeal. The insights he gained through this experience and the heroes who stepped into his life to help him through the journey - his family, the medical staff, and total strangers - changed his life. Now he is committed to living life to the fullest and inspiring others to do the same.

An incredible and emotionally honest account of triumph over tragedy, On Fire contains O'Leary's reflections on being that little boy, the life-giving choices made then, and the resulting lessons he learned. O'Leary very clearly shares that without the right people providing the right guidance at the right time, he never would have made it through those five months in the hospital, let alone the years that followed as he struggled to regain mobility, embrace his story, and ignite clarity of his life's purpose.

On Fire encourages us to seize the power to choose our paths and transform our lives from mundane to extraordinary. Once we stop thinking solely on the big moments in our lives, we can begin to focus on those smaller opportunities that tend to pass us by. These are the events - the inflection points in our lives - that can determine how we feel about life now, where we are headed in the future, and how many lives we can impact along the way. We can't always choose the paths we walk, but we can choose how we walk them. Empowering, inspiring, remarkably honest, and heartfelt, O'Leary's strength and incredible spirit shine through in every minute.

    What did you like most about On Fire?

    I loved every part of the book!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Fire?

    From sports celebrities, to family, to nurses and janitors, it is amazing to hear how each one played a part in John's story


    What does John O'Leary bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    If this book wasn't in audio version, I would most likely never have read it. Thanks for narrating your story John.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were some parts of the story which really struck home, his relationship with his dad. It was nice to hear a story that didn't involve an emotionally disturbed childhood.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should read this book, everyone will get something out of it.

    "Life changing "

    This is an incredible Book that I recommend to everyone. After reading it, I can say it is on one of the 3 most influential books I've ever read. It is also incredibly moving. I think about the material everyday, and was able to put one difficult concept into action just yesterday. This is a book I will read and read and then read again.

    "Great Lessons"

    I had heard John's story before. But the lessons he brings in this book that he had to learn much harder than most of us ever will are inspiring. It proves that excuses are just that, and if you want to be successful only you can make that choice.

    If you ever need to listen to a wonderful true story of living a significant life, this is it. Humility and gratitude are brought together in an honest portrayal of a person overcoming obstacles, and the need for us to do the same.
