Author Paul Teutul Jr. is arguably the most creative builder of custom "chopper" motorcycles in the world. His talents were revealed to millions of TV viewers worldwide on American Chopper as well as later in a spinoff series, American Chopper Senior vs. Junior. The Build gives the listener a glimpse at Paul Jr.'s life behind the camera, which included volcanic conflict with his father and business mentor, Paul Sr. Using his own story of improbable success as an illustration, Paul Jr. offers insights on how anyone can find and activate hidden talents.

I was blessed to read Paul's testimony and the changes that he has made in his life because he has a personal relationship with God. His story is very relatable on many levels. He is honest, transparent, vulnerable, and encouraging. His story is one of hope and encouragement. He honors his dad very well in this book, and if you have had issues with your own father, this is a good book to read. He is proof that you can rise above the crap and be a man of God, regardless of how you start out in life. He is also proof that God uses our past to make us better in the future.

I wrote this book because I believe everyone deserves a place to belong, and I didn't want poor social skills to hold anyone back from friendship and community - even if they struggle with social skills. I believe that you, too can live a life full to the brim with friendship, connection, and love. I hope that after listening to Improve Your Social Skills, you'll believe it too.

The book is great. The person who is reading this is a bit like a robot. Not very fluid or smooth. But, if you can get past the voice, what is being said is very good and worthwhile.

Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world. Yet, in pastor Paul Tripp's professional experience, the majority of couples enter marriage with unrealistic expectations, leaving them unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life.

What did you love best about What Did You Expect??

Paul Tripp explains in common sense terms the application of theology in marriage. Two sinners get married, one should not expect marital bliss. Within the pages are important messages to men and women about how we work out our salvation in the context of marriage.

What was one of the most memorable moments of What Did You Expect??

A proper theology is more important in a marriage than sexual technique or how to please your spouse sexually. Too many people look for sexual books to bring healing to their marriage when what they really need is a better theology.

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.They're talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a 100-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Can you imagine your life without fear?

What did you love best about Fearless?

The author deals with common fears that everyone either has dealt with, is dealing with, or will deal with (from not enough money in the bank to death). Because perfect love casts out fear, the author does a great job of drawing people to God's perfect love which removes fear.

Any additional comments?

Max has a desire to know the depths of God's love. When we love God with all of our heart, there is no room for fear.

The heart of Christianity is about transformation, about a God who isn't just concerned with our "spiritual lives", but who wants to impact every aspect of living. It's realizing that God meets us not in a monastery but on Main Street, and that all of ordinary, daily life has the potential to be lived as if Jesus himself were the one living it.

If you could sum up The Me I Want to Be in three words, what would they be?

Refreshing, Insightful, Liberating

What did you like best about this story?

John does a great job of communicating Biblical truths that are not dry, irrelevant, or holier than thou. The author is speaking to me, not down to me.

What about John Ortberg’s performance did you like?

There is no doubt that John is speaking from firsthand experience in this book. In addition, his knowledge as a psychologist helps him relate to people better than theologians.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Do not compare yourself to other people.
