Tomorrow Will Be A Good Day by Tom Moore

I bought Tomorrow Will Be A Good Day by Tom Moore last year, but postponed reading it until now because I wanted to read it around this time. It is such a good book, I liked reading about his life. Some of the things he mentioned in the book were so surprising. The book was a delight to read and rightly received 5 stars.

Tomorrow Will Be A Good Day by Tom Moore

Captain Sir Tom Moore is the elderly man who started fundraising for the NHS-related charities and he raised an impressive £32 million just before his 100th birthday, inspiring people around the world to do their own fundraising campaigns. I made a small donation at that time and I was curious to know more about the man behind this amazing fundraising campaign. The book did not disappoint at all.

His story starts from his childhood playing in the Yorkshire Dales, going to his experience in the army, fighting in Asia during WWII. I enjoyed reading about his views and stories from India. He talked about his life after the war, his personal life, while touching on current events. He touches on things like mental health, living and dealing with a partner’s illness.

I found his book inspirational and lovely to read. I recommend it because it has so many interesting bits. At the end of the book, the last chapters deal with the fundraising, and it was lovely to read about what happened last year.

  • I’m not sure this is something I would read, although I can only admire his tenacity and commitment to the task he set himself during Covid. He definitely started a trend and inspired others around the world, but I firmly believe that the ‘original’ is best and copycats never really work for me. I’m sure he has some stories to tell, as you must get to experience so much in 100 years – all those changes! – I can’t even cope with the odd one or two changes which are happening now and I have lived nowhere near that long!! 🙂 🙂

    • I know you are not into memoirs. This was very interesting because he saw so many things in his lifetime, a world war, partitioning of India after he served there and knew the people, establishment of the NHS. It’s pretty incredible and lovely to read, so good to keep in mind if you decide you want to try some memoirs. 🙂

      • If I was going to read a memoir, then someone like Sir Tom, is definitely the kind of thing I would select. I really can’t stomach ‘celebrity’ memoirs – most of them really are just normal people who think they are legends in their own lifetime!! I’ll certainly bear this one in mind for the future 🙂

    • It is amazing how many things he went through in his lifetime. Also, his personal life is very interesting and unusual.
