LUCE FORWARD PARTNER PUBLISHES BOOK ON A LIFE FULFILLED, FRAMED IN THE CONTEXT OF DEATH – Partner Timothy Tosta, a real estate attorney with Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps LLP, today announced his book, “#DEATHtweet: A Well-Lived Life through 140 Perspectives on Death and its Teachings,” is now available. Intended for those in law, real estate, finance, health care, and other business sectors, #DEATHtweet utilizes lessons Tosta has learned through working with the dying to offer readers a framework for examining their lives, purpose, perspectives, emotions, and relationships.

#DEATHtweet, contains 140 tweets, each less than 140 characters long. Though condensed, these powerful messages offer readers profound truths in a format that is easy to consume for even the busiest individual.

Tosta, one of California’s leading land use and environmental lawyers, secures entitlements for some of the State’s largest and most controversial land use developments. He is also a cancer survivor, seasoned hospice volunteer and certified Integral Coach who shares his experiences with death to help business professionals understand change, help others, manage stress and live a more fulfilled and balanced life.

“So many individuals in the business world lose themselves to projects, deadlines, meetings or Blackberrys,” said Tosta. “Often, they can only be shaken free by experiencing something that shocks them to the core and makes them think about life and what they want from it. From my experiences with death, I’ve learned that it is actually possible to develop and maintain a thriving and even aggressive career, while fully experiencing all that life has to offer. #DEATHtweet and my seminars deal with these issues.”

Prior to #DEATHtweet, Tosta took lessons from his own experience facing death and from his work with the dying to a broader audience through a provocative lecture series entitled “Lessons for the Living.” In addition, he is currently lecturing throughout California on a six-part lecture series called “Why Not Thrive in Turbulent Times.” Tosta also distributes a series of writings titled “Putting Things in Perspective – Stories from a Hospice Volunteer.”
