"Christian author and motivational speaker Andrews effectively combines self-help with fiction to catch readers' interest, sustaining momentum while simultaneously passing on instructions for positive thinking." (Publishers Weekly)
This book is the most powerful book I have ever read. It has changed my life to the point where I have almost committed the entire book to memory.
The Greatest Salesman in the world has the same idea of a series of lessons learned.
It made me face the realization that my life was a result of my choices. I could not blame the economy, a bad boss or anything else for where I was.
I love how Andy Andrews tells a story! This book is a true difference maker. Because I don't have a lot of time to read, I rarely read anything that cannot teach me something new or help me improve myself. This book was so fascinating that I carried it around with me over two days just so I could keep listening to it. The history was so cleverly integrated into the story of David Ponder that it kept me wondering who was he going to meet next. I highly recommend this book.
I love GOD, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Family is very important to me. Good wholesome audio books, and Christian music are my favorites.
All of Andy Andrew Books are great
Yes! For sure!
This Book is one of the best out there.
I liked having the author read it. I feel that gave it more importance and made me understand exactly the point he was trying to make.
David Ponder learns many lessons throughout the book. I think he is attempting to be the "Average Joe" but at some points he comes off as being immature and ignorant. But, in the end he learns the lessons he is intended to and redeems himself.
He put EVERYTHING into perspective. So often we forget about problems of the past because we get caught up in our daily life. The past is there to provide lessons that can, in fact, be very helpful for today's world.
This book gave me the chills the entire time I read it. It struck an emotion within me that I had no idea I had. Andy Andrews gave me a gift of wisdom, perspective, and most importantly, clear examples. After reading the book, I researched all 7 people David Ponder met. Each person had an amazing and TRUE story that serves as an example.
I love to travel and train dogs. I can't seem to find the time to sit down and read so I listen while I'm on my way to...well...anywhere!
In the beginning when the main character was having such a hard time then his life went from bad to worse...could identify with the emotions. As the story unfolded it was such an inspiring experience it made me remember that God is good and life experiences can make a person bitter or better...it's our choice.
This is at the very top. I have listened to it five times since I got and each time I get something different out of it.
I love how the story flows and still keeps your attention. I love the content too, it touches the heart.
I love the part when he is talking with Lincoln and he says forgiving yourself is just as important as forgiving others.
I laughed at some parts and tears at others. This book will hit you in the feels for sure.
This is a great book. I would highly recommend it and then read the 7 Decisions to follow it. Amazing and life changing.
The Traveler's Gift is the greatest book ever! I have listened to and read many books by great authors. Andy Andrews tells an amazing story...but you have to listen to the message contained within. Listening to his next book now. Highly recommended!
