What I Learned Under the Sun is about how you can be overwhelmed with blessings on top of blessings, but if you turn from God in your life, your marriage, anywhere, you make wrong decisions in life and disasters follow. A journey of love sanctified by the Holy Spirit can still turn to deception, adultery, evil, and wickedness beyond comprehension. But if you turn back to y

I won this book thru Library Thing and was so amazed by it. The book is a quick read and is about Kyle and his life. He went thru some pretty rough times along which God was there & still is for him. It was awesome reading about all the good things that the author went thru. The passages about his ex wife made my gut wrench, but Kyle delivers it with grace. I am so looking foreword to his second book and hope I will get the opportunity to read it.

WHAT I LEARNED UNDER THE SUN takes you on a roller coaster ride with the author. After leading the reader through his very interesting start in life, things for Kyle start going downhill. Only by faith, does he get through the terrible Family Court system. What a story he has to tell!! If you are going through or have been through a divorce and child custody battle, you may want to pick this book up!!

Kyle L. Coon presents an incredibly touching and simply unbelievable memoir in What I Learned Under the Sun. In exquisite precision and detail, he describes the things he has done -- and hasn't done -- in his lifetime, and in the end, shows the reader how blessed he is to have a life under the sun that he has grown to love through thick and thin, warts and all.

Beginning from his early adulthood, Coon displays the young and carefree innocence exhibited within himself. Living in sin with his then-

I read this book fairly quickly. There were some great things about this memoir that I found compelling, and some things that needed major editing. If it had been edited better I could have ranked it higher. The best part was the first half of the book before the author gets into the divorce from Marlene. At that point the book takes on an entirely different tone. Also, the second half became pretty repetitious and some things were said numerous times. There were a lot of seemingly contradictory ...more

I received an Advance Reader's Copy (ARC) of this book, and I will post a review after reading.
I thought this story was fascinating and a page-turner. I couldn't wait to find out what's going to happen next. The author's life is truly unbelievable, and I guess one of the messages I took from this book is: you have nothing unless you have God in your life. I'm looking forward to the next book, it should be amazing.

Written straight from the heart, this book is down to earth, open, and honest. I laughed; I cried; I couldn't put it down. Thank you, Kyle, for an inspiring read!
