ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - May 10, 2013) - In his new book, "Life... Don't Miss It. I Almost Did: How I Learned to Live Life to Its Fullest," (, entrepreneur, speaker and former CEO Gary Kunath says people desperately seeking a way to balance the demands -- and joys -- of their work and home lives.

"I used to be caught up in the spin cycle of thinking that net worth automatically afforded me life worth," says Kunath, a former national Businessman of the Year. "I sacrificed time with my family with the justification that I was providing necessary material things. But at a certain point you realize that money doesn't make you rich; it just allows you to buy more stuff."

In "Life… Don't Miss It," Kunath passes along the lessons he learned about achieving work-life balance no matter how demanding one's job.

"Gary's unique insights on personal development have been very beneficial to our company for many years -- reading this book will show you why!" writes David Marriott, COO of America's Eastern Region, Marriott.

Amazon reviewer Terry M Tarbell, who gave the book five stars, writes, "I originally bought this book at the airport; it's quick read but truly makes you think about what's important in life. I loved it so much I ended up buying additional books as gifts for my three daughters. Inside the book I wrote that they pay it forward when they were done reading it. This book touched me in such a way that I want to share it with everyone."
