Often silly and inane, occasionally human and vulnerable, I’ll Seize the Day Tomorrow is a rallying cry for anyone who laments the rose-colored remembrances of things past and needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

Synopsis

I'll Seize the Day Tomorrow is the story of Jonathan Goldstein's journey to find some great truth on his road to forty. In a series of wonderfully funny stories, the host of CBC's WireTap recounts the highs and lows of his last year in his thirties. Throughout the year, Goldstein asks weighty questions that would stump a person less seasoned. For example: What is it about a McRib that drives people crazy? Can we replace extending an olive leaf with extending an olive jar? How much wisdom can we glean from episodes of Welcome Back, Kotter? His friends and family, many of them known through their appearances on WireTap, weigh in with hilarious results as Goldstein eats, sleeps, and watches bad TV all the way to his date with destiny.

...the strength of Goldstein’s observation and reflection lies in how he manages to cull valuable life lessons from the inane.
