When it comes to Audible, action hero, actor, and author Kevin Sorbo does his own stunts. For those Kevin Sorbo fans out there, he reads the book with passion and emotion, along with his wife Sam’s contributions. The book is arranged chronologically and the action is often based off a life epiphany that Kevin had. He shares intimate details of his life with the reader/listener.
The book starts with Kevin’s aspirations as an athlete, which would later transition to becoming an actor. There is great moment Kevin shares about discovering his love for theater; it is definite must-read. Next, he discusses the struggles and the challenges he overcame in pursuing a modeling and acting career. It may seem surprising that even the man who played Hercules and Captain Dylan Hunt had to face rejection and overcome obstacles to earn his dream career. The listening audience is also invited to Kevin’s celebration on landing the role of Hercules. Kevin is a visual writer and his writing transforms the listener’s experience to a dynamic one.
Kevin also shares the evolution of his love life and the different relationships in which he was involved. These led to him meeting Sam, whom he later married. They have three children.
Kevin continues the story with his health crisis, which I assumed would be a heroic tale of how Kevin defeated his illness. However, it was much more than that. Kevin allows the audience to see the interpersonal struggles, the mental stress, and the emotional strain he went through. He also informs the listener about his wife’s strength and the support she gave him and continues to provide. Kevin shares how the illness brought his family closer together and how he grew as a man, a husband, a father, a son, a brother, and as an actor. He even takes the audience on the spiritual journey he went through as he discovered the importance of a balanced life. Once the story concludes the listener will likely realize True Strength is the story of two heroes, Kevin and Sam, and how they work together to face an aneurism, three strokes, and continuous side effects.
Kevin Sorbo inspires in his book and I would like to do the same with this book review. True Strength is an entertaining, informative, and well-written book. It should inspire anyone that has or currently experiences an ailment similar to Kevin’s condition. The book will be enjoyed by anyone overcoming an obstacle, dealing with an illness, or striving to succeed.
Kevin and Sam delivered a great performance.
Smart Engaging Entertaining
His energy and Enthusiasm.
I learned information on how to negotiate salaries and negotiate terms in everyday life. I actually was able to get a discount on a set of new tires by selling my old tires, to the tire company. In the past I had to pay to have the tire company dispose of my used tires. Thanks Jim!
It would be great if Jim made a book for freelancers on audible!
I learned areas I should work on to be more effective professionally! I also discovered the areas I was already strong in.
It is easy to listen to and I suggest anyone looking for a professional advantage, to listen to this book on Audible.
Energetic Practical Smart
I enjoyed the pace, and I found the authors unique take on narrative as a teaching tool for vocabulary.
The narrator is full of energy. She uses different voice tones and accents to differentiate the characters in the story.
This book is educational, and it should not be judge on content that will move an audience. I did learn from it.
This audio book is great for a professional that is seeking to sharpen their networking vocabulary.
