Tell us about yourself!
I have already listened to it 3 times. I take something different from it each time.
I love that the book is set at the Gulf Coast. I grew up close by & I can picture everything he's talking about. It make it very personal.
I enjoyed this book and so I bought hard copies gave it to many others. It lifts the spirit. His other book The Travelers Gift was even better. Enjoyed both of his books...and will read The Summit next.
It is a great story and other than kind of sounding like an motivational seminar is a short feel good, perspective on why we all carry so much baggage and angst around but really don't have too. Stuck in life, listen to this story. Down on your luck, listen to this story.
This book is so uplifting and gives you a different way of looking at a problem or situation. A book that you will want to share.
Jones - He was so funny and truethful!!
His voice change for the Mr Jones.
I've laughed and I've cried. OUTLOUD! :)
This book is FANTASTIC!! I love it. It is one I could listen to over and over. Life Lesson's in a turned around way.
Yes - there were so many life lessons. Whether you are in a slum or on a mountain top, there is a lesson. My daughter (13 yrs old) is listening to it again. We just finished it. My 15 yr old and 10 yr old begged to listen to this book.
When he told the older lady that she was still valuable in other people's lives.
Laugh and cry - ponder and act differently
I would only recommend this book to ages 8-20 year old.If you listened to Focus on the Family's - Wits End, then you would get the style immediately, but my children are all grown. You would only need to read the title of know the entire message of the book. It didn't have enough depth for me. I wanted to stop in the first chapter, however, I friend suggested it, and I thought it would have a surprise ending. But not really. The message was the same throughout the book and there wasn't any need to keep repeating it by changing the characters. His style lends itself to preteens up to college bound students.I thought the title needed to be reworked, at least to hold the read/listeners attention.
No, I did not care for his style of writing. He was predictable and a little tiresome for me.
Hie voice seemed forced as the Noticer, yet pleasant when not the Noticer, and grating and soft at times. I was not a fan of his voice throughout the entire book, maybe if other people shared the characters with him it could have made it more interesting.
No-because the message was in the title. Could have been delivered in a pamphlet.
Title was too simple and needed more development, but then again, so did the story.
The book was very thought provoking and inspiring.
This is not a book that I wanted to listen to in one sitting because I want to continue listening and gaining more insight from the book.
I would recommend this book to everyone.
