In February 2012, as she went in labour with her first child, Bronnie Ware prayed for two things: the safe arrival of her baby, and that she would one day become a Hay House author. In a turn of events that can only be described as extraordinary, within 24 hours, both had come true!

First published in October 2011 by Balboa Press (a division of Hay House), The Top Five Regrets of the Dying is now being released simultaneously worldwide as a Hay House title. When The Top Five Regrets of the Dying started shooting straight to the top of the bestseller lists, monitoring between Balboa Press and Hay House went into overdrive. It wasn't long before calls from The ABC, The Courier Mail as well as other local media, plus the UK's Sunday Times and BBC followed. Within a week, rights to The Top Five Regrets of the Dying were sold in seven countries. More information available in SAMS.

Bronnie's blog, Inspiration and Chai, is the source of the post The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, which has been read by over 3 million people worldwide. This post is the springboard from which the book of the same name was written.

Part memoir, part inspirational guide, in The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, Bronnie shares her own life story, and interweaves it with the lessons she learned from her experiences with the patients she tended as a palliative care nurse.

The top five regrets are:

1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself
2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard
3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings
4. I wish I'd stayed in touch with my friends and
5. I wish I'd let myself be happierĀ 

International interest has been huge, with rights sold in Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Czech Republic, and auctions in place for World Spanish Language, France, Japan, Korea and Poland.

            This book is not what you may think - yes there are details of the regrets of dying, but it is far more than this - it is a story of a journey, a very inspiring journey that will take you by surprise towards the end. This book is full of great inspiration and hope, and I can't wait to read it again......once my husband finishes it!

              Written by a lay person who gained an insight to the thoughts of the dying. The five tenets were not unexpected but are well clarified by the writer with examples

                A beautiful book that gives insight into what people feel when they are dying. They don't wish they made more money or worked harder, they wish they loved more, laughed more, were kinder to themselves and others. A book to learn from and read over again and again. A bible for real life.
