My Review:

This is a very well-written book, but I was just not moved much by it.  It is written in a format that includes principles at the end of each chapter.  The chapters cover such topics as things that lead to disappointment, determination,  success, and our relationship with God.  It is full of scriptural references and encouragement for the reader.  I don’t usually mention it but this book had multiple typos that distracted from my reading.  The book is written to help the reader to overcome life disappointments.  There really is not a lot I cam say about the book so I would recommend that before you read the book that you read many other reviews to get a full impression of the book.

I was provided a complimentary copy of the book for review.  I was not obligated to write a positive review.  The opinions in this review are my own.
