Bob Goff is not your average person - he dares to pursue in the face of blatantly being told "no". When you get caught up in the hum drum of "making something of yourself" or determining God's call in your life - this book is one that restores hope and pushes for you to stop strategizing your life and be God's hands and feet.
Goff has an excellent story telling ability - not to mention, his stories seem outlandish. But as you read through, you see this, too, is a lifestyle you can have. Not all of life has to be well thought through or lived by following formalities. Dare to pursue people in the overflowing love God has for you.
A perfect vacation read (at least because that's when I had time to read it) - because you have time to reflect on your ordinary life and see where you are void of whimsy. Get some whimsy - read this book.
