Yes! Jon Acuff is great! This is such a great 'jumpstart your life' kinda book.
This book definitely made me laugh!
this is a giant pain in the bum. I'm not enjoying the process. I paid for the book, why am I required to review.
Just what I needed, wish I listened months ago as the truth and message would have helped me as I quit my job to pursue full time youth ministry.
5 stars to help Jon sleep better at night :)
Made me self reflect and I identify problem areas
I am not scared of the "learning" phase anymore
In summary it gave me a deeper desire to live an "awesome life"
I became familiar with the author from his "Stuff Christians Like" book and enjoy his wit
& humor. We are kindred spirits.
I'm also a management & business book enthusiast. And honestly Jon did better here then I assumed he might. That said I'm between a John C Maxwell & Jim Collins Good to Great book. Kind of deeper in the pool.
BUT this was inspiring and motivating in ways those aren't, and may just be feeding a niche those other authors neglected. And so, where my soon to graduate High School son and my wife might NEVER pick up a John Maxwell book, I'm insisting he give this one a listen before college enrollment.
Jon Acuff is amazing. He is full of life knowledge. I found the book to be real and inspiring. Sometimes authors portray their lives as perfect; however, Jon provides suggestions based upon his own experience.
I don't know if I've ever listened to such an engaging audio book. It felt more like an inspiring public speech rather than an audio book.
That is just a bonus. The information provided in this book encourages the listener to pursue their own talents and passions by giving practical and honest advice on how to do it. It's awesome!
