Love Does shares powerful stories coupled with eye-opening truths and empowers anyone who longs for a better world and a richer faith. You don’t need another Christian message or a self-help book. You need to have your paradigms about the world shifted into truth. That’s exactly what you get in Love Does. Have you ever noticed that the real change in your life - the growth that sticks and becomes a part of you - never happens with a program or the sheer grit of your best efforts?

Very uplifting and inspiring. I'm not a religious person and I really appreciated Bob's approach to his faith. It makes me want to take more chances in life!

This book is full of great information, and wonderful insight. I really enjoyed it, When I could concentrate enough on every word. While it is obvious the author is passionate about the subject, the monotone nature of the boys allowed me to tune it out as background noise more often than not. Therefore I had a very difficult time getting through this entire book. The softness and calmness of his voice was really good for the exercises portion of the book. Perfect for actually practicing meditation. However, I feel like I missed a good portion of good information because I completely zoned out nearly every time I I started to listen.

We have all seen, whether live, in photographs or on postcards, some of Claude Monet's legendary water lily paintings. They are in museums all over the world and are among the most beloved works of art of the past century. Yet, ironically, these soothing images were created amid terrible personal turmoil and sadness.

I love learning more about Claude Monet, the story is both beautiful and sad. Performance was just OK. A little bit monotone, I found myself drifting off quite easily. However overall, if you are into the time period And the artist you will definitely enjoy this Book.

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

A quiet book, well read, well written, decent story, predictable, full of tiny things that make life beautiful. I very much enjoyed the narrators voice. I feel that maybe on reflection and in evaluation I might enjoy the book even further. Not what I was expecting based on all the 5 star, "best book I've ever read in my life" reviews. Really good, not great.
