it was amazing
Read in December, 2011

** spoiler alert ** I heard about this book the other night while listening to the First Presidency Christmas Devotional. President Thomas S. Monson said he reads every Christmas. What better recommendation does one need to read a book?

It is a short story about a very wealthy man who has his priorities wrong. He does plenty of good, but only if it will be beneficial for him. His focus is on the recognition, and in a dream he sees that his mansion in heaven is a shack. He hasn't given Heaven much to work with, and he's already had his reward. The dream changes him.
