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!

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.

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.

Not as good as the movie

There haven't been but a few times that I've said this but, the Hallmark movie was much better. The movie goes into a lot more character depth. The book just touches the surface. Loved the movie didn't get as much out of the book.

I have immensely enjoyed this program. I just wish everyone would, too. Get it now if you can. Better yet, gift it to someone. They'll know how much you love them.

Gifts to cherish

This book will certainly give you good for thought. A great reminder, step by step, of the many ways we can and should appreciate the life we live.
A good, quick read that would be good to revisit as needed to put priorities back in proper order.

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.
