Publisher's Summary

What would you do to inherit a million dollars? Would you be willing to change your life? Jason Stevens is about to find out in Jim Stovall's The Ultimate Gift.

Red Stevens has died, and the older members of his family receive their millions with greedy anticipation. But a different fate awaits young Jason, whom Stevens, his great-uncle, believes may be the last vestige of hope in the family. "Although to date your life seems to be a sorry excuse for anything I would call promising, there does seem to be a spark of something in you that I hope we can fan into a flame. For that reason, I am not making you an instant millionaire."

What Stevens does give Jason leads to The Ultimate Gift. Young and old will take this timeless tale to heart.

    "A Delightful Story Well Told!"

    The first of Jim Stovall's "Ultimate..." trilogy and a delightful introduction to his positive oriented books. As an avid self-help enthusiast, I hadn't expected much new info, and yet a number of the key topics (no spoilers, here) were presented with a fresh approach. I look forward to "reading" Jim Stovall's other books.
    The narration by Tom Bosley was excellent and reminiscent of his role as a kind-hearted father on the TV-series "Happy Days."
    Two thumbs up!

    "What a treasure!"

    I can't wait to pass this book along to my son for his 10th birthday. I hope he gets as much out of it as I did. Tom Bosley did a fantastic job. His familiar voice really helped bring you into the story like you were family.

    "Life Is What You Make It"

    The story was informative, inspiring and interesting. It would be a good (in chapters) youth class presentation. The narrator was perfect.

    "As expected"

    Nothing ground breaking here. predictable plot. love listening to Tom though!
    It would be a good read for a young person in middle school.

    "Timeless classic"

    A quick classic tale of the important lessons in life that money can't buy. I was a little bored at times listening to this because I didn't learn anything new. But it would be a good one for kids to read who need to learn this valuable information.

    Story
    "The gift that keeps on giving"
    If you could sum up The Ultimate Gift in three words, what would they be?

    Timeless...inspiring...essential.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ultimate Gift?

    The section that described the "Golden List." Something so easy to do, yet easy to not do. We make grocery lists, to-do lists, Christmas lists, etc. Yet, we rarely put together as daily list of what we're grateful for.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene with the elderly gentleman who just buried his wife of 60 years. My life flashed forward so quickly when I thought of my wife and how fast it will go by. I needed the reminder to daily create a special life for not only me, but wife, daughter and so many others. To look back on a live lived with no regrets is a life well-lived.


    If you could take any character from The Ultimate Gift out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Red Stevens.

    "Buy It !"

    I bought this book (the hard copy) many many years ago, and I have read it many times, I've lent it out many times, and I have to say it has had some profound effects.

    I highly recommend you listen to it, its wonderful.
