    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

Bush Air National Guard controversy, his coverage of the JFK assassination, the origin of "Hurricane Dan", as well as inside stories about all the top personalities Dan has either interviewed or worked with over his remarkable career.

    "Have you ever felt caught between the tension of a day job and a dream job? That gap between what you have to do and what you’d love to do? I have. At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, 'I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.'"

    Would you try another book from Jon Acuff and/or Jon Acuff?

    Not really.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jon is the lead man throughout this story. He tries to focus on the why and encourages you to as well.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, this book would not make a great movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this book at the reccomendation of Dave Ramsey. While Jon tells the story with enthusiasm, the main underlying focus, is to do what you love and in time you can quit your day job and work for yourself. I really didnt learn any new ideas from this book. I think he should go back to the drawing board and rewrite the book with more stories of actual people who have achieved the quitter status.
