I really enjoy "I Decided Not to Die", the power of decision and how to overcome challenges

I liked many of the stories including the one showing Aunt Theresa's kindness, the one with Mr. Lampkin which urges us to pay attention and do our best, the one with Carol that shows us taking responsibility for one's action is necessary, the one with Uncle Fred which shows that unnecessary obsession with the negative things can be harmful, the one with the British co-passenger showing patience in the face of the author's rudeness, and finally the one where Peter lived because he simply chose not to die. These are my personal favourites.

I liked the story about taking candy without paying and how a man silently paid for him. Then, later when an old woman at the grocery store dropped a $10 bill and couldn't find it because a man behind her stepped on it, the author gives his own $10 to the woman. I really like how we should just do what is right by example, instead of scolding or accusing someone of wrong-doing. Right action speaks louder than judging at times.

All Rob White's stories were remarkable but I mostly loved the first chapter, how he paid tribute to his aunt Theresa.

I like the part of the story best, when the author by chance happens to go to a barber suggested by his friend, rather than his usual one, and gets a desirable haircut! When he returns home, he looks at the mirror. From his new haircut, he discovers his true personality! It was to do what he truly wished in life, rather than following the traditional ideas and protocols of society!

I liked every single story. Every single one taught something and I loved it. Every chapter was extraordinary in this or that way. So every chapter was equally liked.
