A Lifetime of Adventure that will Inspire Readers

Kari Loya’s ‘My Top 40 at 40’ is a witty, inspiring book that makes milestones into goalposts, encouraging readers to create incredible experiences of their own

Author Kari Loya’s Top 40 at 40: Making the First Half Count is a charming and hilarious collection of his own incredible experiences.  From the incredible and fantastic to the not-so-lucky, his inspirational tone and fun outlook on life will entertain readers everywhere who love an author with an insatiable taste for adventure.

Including such wild adventures as tearing through the streets of Pamplona with bulls on his heels, running to the top of the Empire State Building and the floor of the Grand Canyon, a three-day James Bond themed wedding in Argentina, and crossing the Andes on horseback, Loya’s spirit for experience will carry though the pages, inspiring readers everywhere to create stories of their own.

Written in celebration of his fortieth birthday, Loya decided to present the most memorable moments of his life in an original, meaningful way that could be enjoyed not only by his friends and family, but people everywhere.  This collection of forty stories spanning six continents and two decades is a witty and thrilling book of a life well lived, even covering such unpleasant (yet still somehow fun to read) experiences such as being audited by the IRS and getting arrested.

Loya’s colorful recollections, infectiously enthusiastic voice, and hilarious retelling of his epic adventures (and mishaps) will leave readers eager to create their own unique stories in their lives – and hopefully, figure out how to avoid the snags!  

A great read for anyone coming up on a milestone birthday, or any individual looking for a little inspiration to jumpstart their own adventures, My Top 40 at 40 is well-written and expertly told with a keen sense of humor and a wonderfully positive attitude that will translate to readers of all ages, on all walks of life.
