This is the Moment
This transformative work is about to take you on one man’s extraordinary journey of gratitude. Over the course of a year, Walter Green traveled throughout the United States (and even abroad) to visit 44 of the people who have significantly impacted his life at various stages—be it as a young man trying to find his way in the world, a businessman building his career and family, or a man who sold his company and found new meaning in mentoring and philanthropy. During these visits, Walter conveyed his profound gratitude in a purposeful and explicit way. He wanted to tell these men and women how much they mattered to him before anyone’s health or life was compromised and the opportunity was missed.
In this inspirational gem of a book, not only will you accompany Walter on his gratitude journey, but you’ll also find yourself greatly moved by all that resulted from these powerful encounters. And as you read, you’ll acquire the tools to create meaningful conversations with your own “road-changers,” no matter what your age or life circumstance. These individuals could be family members, friends, teachers, colleagues, counselors, or any number of others who have influenced you. Your expressions of appreciation will undoubtedly enrich your relationships with them . . . and will provide you with amazing insights into your own life as well.

What others are saying about the book…
“My friend Walter Green . . . has done what few people have ever thought of doing, and that is to go back and revisit all those people in his life who assisted in propelling him forward in his journey. This is a wise, thought-provoking, and provocative endeavor, and a very interesting and inspiring read.”
— Suzanne Somers, TV personality and actress; best-selling author of Knockout
“You will not like Walter Green’s new book, This Is the Moment. You will LOVE it!”
—Harvey Mackay, Author of New York Times No. 1 Best Seller, Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive
“There’s an old adage that asks: ‘Why put off until tomorrow that which you can do today?’ This Is the Moment! is Walter Green’s takeoff on that age-old sound advice. This is not your usual ‘how to’ book. Rather, it’s a compelling, deeply personal accounting of a life well lived and appreciated; as well as how Walter thanked those he felt were responsible for helping him live that life to the fullest, while they were still alive to hear and appreciate it. A good read and good advice. Enjoy it.”
— Bill Bratton, the former chief of the LAPD and former New York City Police Commissioner
“Walter Green beautifully captures one man’s journey of the heart. Recognizing that those around us shape and mold who we are, he calls to light one of the greatest spiritual lessons of gratefulness and appreciation. May we all open our hearts in this way.”
— Mimi Guarneri, M.D., FACC, the author of The Heart Speaks
“This book is the perfect source for inspiration, education, and mobilization! It will open your eyes to the art of the possible and commit your heart to the science of the actionable. Read it not only to be motivated, but to be enlightened about both success and significance in business and life.”
