This book was free when I downloaded it to my Nook. I appreciate the free opportunity to read new-to-me authors who write in genres I do not normally select. What makes this book even better is it contains excerpts from six of his books. This book is well-written, motivating, and inspirational. It can be read quickly or slowly, depending on how much self-reflection the reader wishes to add. I recommend it for all readers.
This short book actually was a sampler, of some of Max Lucado's book. I enjoyed reading this this morning, it gave a nice uplift to the already beautiful day here. I highly recommend this little collection of samples!
