David Menasche had not yet turned thirty-five when he received the news that he had terminal brain cancer. Six years passed before a seizure robbed him of his future as a classroom English teacher, but this passionate young man was determined not to abandon his own education. With alacrity, he set out to visit dozens of his former students in distant cities and towns to discover how these young men and women had translated his teachings into their day-to-day lives. The Priority List serves as a double narrative; both the memoir of a brave man searching for final meanings and the stories of young people assimilating the insights of another person's lifetime.
