Recommended for: Everyone!

Ya'll, this was awesome. Chip and Joanna are some of the most amazing people. They are just some of the most down to earth and real people I have ever heard of. This book was a wonderful glance into their busy, beautiful life. It made me laugh hysterically, (Chip has the effect on people, I imagine) and *almost* made me cry. They are just real people, with real issues, and a VERY real God! There is no romanticization, drama, or anything like that with either the TV show or this book. What you see is what you get.

To quote Joanna: "We love our kids, we love each other, we love this town, and we love our clients That's the heart behind our show. We're a real couple and a real company, and we do real jobs or people with real budgets."

They devotion to God, their family, and their business is so inspiring, and their honesty and integrity is motivational. This books was very encouraging to my own entrepreneurial efforts. A must read!!!
