Product Description

Not many people can claim "talking vegetables" as the fruit of their life's labor, but Phil Vischer can! Starting with no money, no connections, and no clue what he was getting himself into, he doggedly pursued his dream to use his love of technology and slightly warped sense of humor to change the world for Christ. But instead of becoming the next Walt Disney, Phil Vischer found himself in bankruptcy court, watching everything fall apart. Follow his remarkable journey from VeggieTales creator to bankrupt dreamer as he shares his story of trial and ultimate triumph. It may change everything you believe about dreaming big, falling hard and getting back up again.

Publisher's Description

Larry. Bob. Archibald. These Veggie Tales stars are the most famous vegetables you'll ever eat. Oops, meet. Their antics are known around the world. But so much of the Veggie Tale story hasn't been told. In Me, Myself, and Bob, Phil Vischer, founder of Big Idea and creator of Veggie Tales, gives a behind-the-scenes look at his not-so-funny journey with the loveable veggies. From famed creator to bankrupt dreamer, Vischer shares his story of trial and ultimate triumph as God inspired him with one big idea after another.

With a flair for electronics, a wild imagination salted heavily with wit, and a talent for animation, a young Iowan boy broke out of the mold and ended up creating those very popular VeggieTales. How does your average 1960’s Christian boy with divorced parents become so famous? As told by that boy himself, Phil Vischer, Me, Myself & Bob is by turns hilarious, disquieting, heart-breaking, intriguing, and comforting. And then he faces bankruptcy. It isn’t only humor and talent that get him through it all. Along the way Vischer shares the trust and obey lessons he learned from his Lord. Vignettes clustered through this story provide appeal, including many of our now-famous animators and performers.
Me, Myself & Bob is an interesting—yet somewhat improbable even while remaining believable—autobiography. The average, middle-class Christian will identify with the pitfalls, problems, mess-ups, and godly rescues that appear on these pages. Those readers who have found themselves not quite in step with the common drummer will be happy to meet another out-of-stepper. Everyone will enjoy the humor. The account of bankruptcy proceedings capably catches the frailty of average people, and their relief as they find they can trust God. Vischer describes himself as a Bible college dropout looking for his father and longing to make an impact. In his closing chapters, Vischer shares this insight, “Let it go. Give it up. Let it die. Let Christ shred your dragon skin and lead you into a whole new life” (p. 251). Read this book for fun, read it to learn more about living the daily Christian life, but most of all read it to see how one man is getting rid of his dragon skin. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book

    This book has been shared with our whole family, adults and teens especially. It is written with humor and absolute candor on Phil Vischer's part. Reading it has lead to some meaningful conversations between parents and their teens. Some important life lessons revealed and examined here. I highly recommend it.

    I bought this book for someone else after hearing Phil Vischer on a radio interview. The young man (college student) that I purchased it for quickly read the book from cover to cover. The book had a profound impact on him, and I can't wait to read it next. Phil's story was so inspirational and encouraging that the young man emailed Phil to tell him how it encouraged him, and Phil even wrote back!

    This book gives all of us who want to make entertainment for the Lord come to grips with God's plans which are superior to our plans. "A man's mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." Proverbs

    I loved this book--an honest account of one man's dream to partner with God in creating something that would bring good to the world. Vischer makes profound points about "beware of your dreams," because, ultimately, "The God who created the universe is enough for us." Highly recommended, as both a memoir and a business book.

    Since expanding our family 8 years ago, we have found great comfort in the Big Idea productions of biblical truths and morals so lacking in modern entertainment. I read Phil's book in 2 sittings and was refreshed to find a candid and honest look at our human frailites...not finger pointing. I was also relieved to see that Big Idea did not fail due to scandal or immoral choices.
