Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Beth | 2/20/2014

    " Very insightful and inspiring. The anecdotal format kept it informative rather than being "preachy". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lamplight | 2/11/2014

    " The personal stories at the end of each chapter are the best part. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katy | 2/9/2014

    " Great book. Really makes you think about life and to be happy with your own life! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trace Henley | 2/8/2014

    " I think this is an incredible book. It really outlines the difference one person can make by believing in something. More importantly, it offers the opportunity for personal reflection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 2/4/2014

    " No this is not a marriage book. And yes I would recommend it to everyone. Especially if you have grown up in a sheltered world where you like to not think about what happens to those less fortunate than you on the other side of the world. This book honestly opened my eyes and gave me hope that I can make a difference. It really was probably my favorite book I have read this summer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Akhila | 2/1/2014

    " I felt like this book was very elementary. It had a great message and the authors are very inspiring, but it seemed like it was written for little kids. While the theme was good, I felt like it didn't really add very much to my life in terms of my understanding of the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Duncan | 1/31/2014

    " The past couple of years I've found myself focused more on "me and mine," with most of my attention and work centered around my own home and family - and with a toddler and a baby, that may be excusable, but it's not how I intend to live or how I want my children to prioritize their involvement with the world. This book was motivational in that it praised the small and simple things we can do for others, given the limitations on time and resources that most of us have. Yes, it's self-helpy, but it's a quick read and there's something here toward which most everyone could relate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CD | 1/18/2014

    " Excellent book for teens and parents and any adult who works with teens. Provides a concrete and positive way for our teens to make a positive difference in the world. It is trly amazing what teens can do right now. There is no need for them to wait until they are adults to do something spectacular. This book is filled with personal stories of teens who have raised buckets of cash, who have helped other teens in need, who have made a difference for child laborers, the list goes on and one. This organization is the real deal and Mark and Craig have a powerful message. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/16/2014

    " Totally inspiring. Made me want to change the world, adopt an orphan, and start living my religion. "

    " inspiring if a bit pat at times "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine Barrus | 12/31/2013

    " I loved the world view of this book and its efforts to make the reader think about her place in the world at large. It made me want to get out and serve and offered very concrete examples of ways that could be done. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tobi | 12/23/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali Mae | 9/3/2013

    " a little cheesy, but no too depressing--although the subject matter is very depressing. I listened to the audio book while driving--so I couldn't do the act now stuff--but I thought there were really good ideas in there. "

    " I think my brain is on overload from books like this right now. There were some really nice stories though. I liked that it focused more on average people than powerful ones too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 El50 | 4/17/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya | 11/9/2012

    " An amazing message from two amazing young men. However, I recommend travelling to see them speak, more than reading the book. I was a little disappointed about the amount of American references in the book. However, the message is what is important... "
