When Jason Stevens found out he had to learn twelve lessons to maybe get an unnamed inheritance from his billionaire grandfather, he was not amused. By the time he’d finished learning the imposed lessons, he’d become a different man. Ready to tackle the duties of running a multibillion dollar trust, his plans for the year are once again derailed; this time by his pugnacious family. Not content with their cattle ranches and oil fields, his aunts, uncles, and even his mother are determined to see every last dime entrusted to their own self-serving pockets. With none of the reluctance he initially showed for The Ultimate Gift, he eagerly accepts the challenge and pushes himself to prove not only to his family and the court but also to the world that with determination and the simple tenets of The Ultimate Gift, anyone can lead The Ultimate Life.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amber | 2/12/2014

    " Almost a complete rewrite of the first book - the Ultimate Gift. I would give it the same review as the first one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 2/8/2014

    " Amazing...can't wait to read The Ultimate Journey and the rest of Jim Stovall's work! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 2/2/2014

    " I enjoyed the lessons this book had to offer. It was quite simplistic, but had good meaning to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 1/31/2014

    " sequel to The Ultimate Gift. Gives more detail as to what happened in book one. Really shows how selfishness never really gets us what we want in life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 1/30/2014

    " What a great book! I love the message that it sends. It can be a bit repeptetive, but the over-all message is clear. I think that I will go back and read the first book (The Ultimate Gift). I only watched the movie. Very inspiring! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 McKenna | 1/29/2014

    " This book just seemed like a way for the author to make more money without doing any work. It was all the same story, same chapters, and same order. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miranda Heath | 1/28/2014

    " This book was really great. It went into even more detail of the Ultimate Gift. Jason's stories really touched me, and Mr. Hamilton, as always, cracked me up. He will probably always be one of my favorite characters. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Garza | 1/26/2014

    " This was a good book, though it did not differ much from the original (I only saw the movie). The principles are all solid, and very worthwhile. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cathy | 1/15/2014

    " This book, although all good lessons and charachteristics for a good life, was boring. I skimmed the last few gifts. After reading the first one, this one was a real let down. It just basically rehashed the first one, in the setting of a courtroom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanu | 12/10/2013

    " It is a good book, but the first book in the series was the best. This book repeats everything that happens in the first book and adds more to explain each gift. Overall, it is worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha | 12/6/2013

    " I got bored with this one. It was very formulaic and it seemed to just recap what happened in The Ultimate Gift, without really adding anything to the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aruna Kumar Gadepalli | 10/21/2013

    " Those who enjoyed reading - "The Ultimate Gift (The Ultimate Series #1)" will like this as well. Only difference in this story is after the death of grandfather, whose will is challenged in the court starts the story. Its mix of self help woven in the fiction style. Easy and quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristal Golden | 10/21/2013

    " Continuing story of how Jason has implemented the Gifts God has given him into his life! Terrific story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennefer | 10/13/2013

    " Felt like I was reading "The Ultimate Gift" again. It probably would have been better if there was more time since I had read Ultimate Gift. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 10/12/2013

    " This book was better written then the first one. I did, however, feel like he tried to make up for changes found in the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 10/12/2013

    " Another good book. Quick read, but great life lessons. I just bought this book so the rest of my family could read it. It's basically a continuation of the first book. I don't especially like the writer's style of writing, but I stilled liked the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 6/30/2013

    " This book is a continuation of The Ultimate Gift. Both books remind you to think about what you really value in life and how you personally can contribute to the world around you.... I am enjoying my time reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina | 6/27/2013

    " This was fine. It's pretty much a repeat of the Ultimate Gift. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chad | 5/31/2013

    " A good book but very much a repeat of The Ultimate Gift. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 2/5/2013

    " A little better than the last one, in terms of the writing style. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 11/30/2012

    " Really liked the first book (The Ultimate Gift) and this book felt like just a retelling of the same story. Nice story the first time. Kind of lacking the second time around. "

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

    " This is book #2. It follows The Ultimate Gift. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick | 10/28/2012

    " What a great book! This should be mandatory reading! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tpiac | 10/28/2012

    " Mr. Stovall is a modivational speaker and not traditionally an author. While I admire the purpose of this book, lyrical it is not. It's very repetative, but it did give me things to think about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet S | 7/18/2012

    " It gives you a new perspective on life. It makes you stop and think about the little things. And life is what we make of it. How can we make it better for someone else. This is a sequel to the Ultimate Gift. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 2/2/2012

    " This book was just a tired rehash of the first book. As far as I can see it was just a money grab by the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 11/29/2011

    " Nice message wrapped in marshmallow! A bit of fluff. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 9/13/2011

    " This book is a great read. The sequel to "The Ultimate Gift" it really puts life into perspective. Strongly recommend the movie, as well, "The Ultimate Gift" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meagan | 8/22/2011

    " Sequel to The Ultimate Gift, which I haven't yet read but will try to find a copy at the library. Good book about what's important in life...little reminders and lessons cited throughout its entirety. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Whitney | 8/22/2011

    " Again, I liked this. There was a lot of repetition from the first book, so I was able to skim and got through it quickly. Didn't love it; didn't hate it. It's worth a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlie | 4/25/2011

    " THis is the sequel book to the Ultimate Gift, although it is really a repeat of the first, with little variance.

    I would recommend this book, although reading one or the other is sufficient. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl / Bella | 1/9/2011

    " The second book is filled with inspiration for us all to maintain the focus we have in our lives. I suggest to everyone to read this priceless novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassie | 9/14/2010

    " The story is wonderful. The way it is told leaves something to be desired. The routine of it gets boring about half way through it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 8/11/2010

    " This was a good book, though it did not differ much from the original (I only saw the movie). The principles are all solid, and very worthwhile. "
