I had heard that this book would change my life, but I didn't believe it until I read it. Goff's stories encourage the reader to live on whims without social restrictions on love and humanity.
This book is narrated by the exuberant author who probably talks with his hands, so there were a handful of times I had to listen twice, but otherwise the narration is also good.
Bob Goff is one of the best story tellers I've ever heard or read. He is engaging and his stories have quiet an impact. If you want to love people in a deeper, more meaningful way--this book will challenge you to DO it! Because, love DOES!
Bob's humor and use of words. He is brilliant!
I laughed, I cried...I couldn't wait to listen to the next chapter!
Passion Perseverance Faith
Bob's enthusiasm and passion is infectious. Some great lessons in finding the positives in life when they're not readily apparent and making positive things happen through perseverance and faith.
I love listening to books actually read by the author and this one is no exception. Bob Goff lived the stories he shares and those experiences are fully conveyed with an inherent passion for life and the opportunities to live love.
I love that Bob doesn't seem to ever think that anything is impossible. There's a faith and trust that in living life, and making decisions, things will somehow work out. It's less about the destination and all about the journey.
I'm still amazed at the story about his kids writing to world leaders and then actually being invited to come meet them. And then having one of those same leaders come visit them at their house. Crazy!! Who does that and why can't we all live with a little more reckless abandon. Truly inspirational.
I don't normally "listen" to books in one sitting since I listen while working out or commuting. But when I sit to read, which is not as often as I would like, this is a book that I could see reading cover-to-cover just because I was anxious to see what crazy stunt Bob was going to pull next.
If you're in need of some inspiration and a reminder that life is what you make it, read this book. Better yet, read it and then go do. Love Does.
This book is life changing. Our family has already enacted the verb of Love. When we question how we should help others, the statement "Love Does" is always said by someone.
Bob is an inspiration to everyone. If we can only show 1/100th of the Love Bob shows, the world would be a dramatically better place to live. His energy is infectious!
I always love it when the author is engaging enough to narrate their own book. Bob Goff does an amazing job. Hearing it in first person is the only way to get this book!
Yes, the author reads it with his emphases.
None like it!

This audiobook will inspire your wild, adventurous side, and passion for God and others, to work itself into your everyday life. Bob Goff tells stories of his own experiences living life on the edge in an everyday kind of way, while welcoming you into his reflections on God and His boundless, bold, abundant love. He reads about his life with authenticity and makes the listener understand that living a life of love [for God and others] requires boldness, but is fully attainable for those of us who are "typical" or "regular" people.
Bob Goff lives an extraordinary life and speaks about it like "it's just that way it is."
I enjoyed listening to a chapter at a time, and then allowing myself the time and energy to ponder the things he shared.
This book was so refreshing, inspiring and funny. And such an easy listen. The big idea of sharing love really changes everything. Now to start more bible-doing and whimsical living :)
One of the best books I've listened to in years – inspiring and encouraging and convicting all of the same time – love it! Do not hesitate to get this book and read or listen to it, you will have no regrets
