What Do You Want to Do Before You Die?

Moving, Unexpected, and Inspiring Answers to Life's Most Important Question

By The Buried Life, Dave Lingwood, Ben Nemtin, Duncan Penn, Jonnie Penn

#1 New York Times Bestseller

What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? is an illustrated collection of your wildest dreams. Two hundred of the most moving, imaginative, unexpected, and inspiring things to do before you die are brought to life through handmade art curated by Ben, Dave, Duncan, and Jonnie—the founders of The Buried Life.

These four regular guys are on a mission to complete a list of 100 things before they die, and for every item they accomplish, they help a total stranger do something on his or her own list.

Why we wrote this book:
We hope that the dreams and words filling these pages will ignite part of you and halt you long enough to sincerely think about what is important to you. It’s easy to think about what’s important to others but rarely do we truly listen to our gut and our heart, and that is where a bucket list should grow. If nothing in the world were impossible, what would you do? Even if it is impossible, what do you want to do before you die?
