Harry August is dying (again) when he a little girl gives him a message: in the future the world is ending. Harry dies, as usual, and finds himself a child again, in the past, with full memory of the lives he has lived before. All fourteen previous ones.

Harry August is a rarity. A man born in 1918 who lives usually until his sixties or seventies and then dies only to be born again in 1918 to the same parents in the same circumstances. He lives in a loop of time but remembers each life he lives and takes different approaches or careers during his lives. All this wealth and experience is targeted toward finding out how the world is ending and what he can do to stop it.

It's different from any other time travel book you've read and that alone is worth the time spent reading it.
