Bob reads his work with impressive passion and deliberation. The listener can hear how important each sentence and story is simply by the sound of Bob's voice. Beautifully done.
Love Does is so simple, yet so vital to the complexities of life. After finishing Love Does, I realized that every day is an invitation to participate in life and to not take advantage of that is a mistake that many make. I have never felt so fulfilled as I do now after being reminded of the tremendous love that God has for me. Now I am confident to love God back, and do as I please because my actions are an outpouring of His love for me.
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.
Probably not but that's not to speak against this author. This book offered an okay listening experience. I ordered it for a 12 hour car trip. What I liked about the book was how the various short stories were appropriate for little ears in the backseat and how the message was positive and encouraging. The reader's voice was also pleasant and easy to understand. Some of the stories that the author launched into were actually entertaining, yet others were a little long-winded and going no where. I know a handful of folks who absolutely LOVED this book so this is why I gave it a whirl, however, I found myself making excuses for turning it off during the road trip which is not something I typically do with more engaging audiobooks where I can't wait to hear what happens next. In fact, I didn't finish this book until I was well on my way BACK HOME from my trip. My official opinion: "Mehhh".
The narration was fine.
It's an okay book. By far not the worst book I've ever read or listened to but I kinda wish I had downloaded a different book on my iphone for my car trip. It just couldn't hold my attention like other feel-good books do.
