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

This is a story of dreaming big and working hard, of spectacular success and breathtaking failure, of shouted questions, and, at long last, whispered answers. With trademark wit and heart, Phil Vischer shares how God can use the death of a dream to point us toward true success.

Larry. Bob. Archibald. These VeggieTales stars are the most famous vegetables you'll ever eat. Oops, meet. Their antics are known around the world. But so much of the VeggieTales story hasn't been told. In Me, Myself, and Bob, Phil Vischer, founder of Big Idea and creator of VeggieTales, 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.

Author Bio

Phil Vischer is the CEO and Chief Creative Officer of Big Idea Productions. As co-creator of the popular series, VeggieTales™, he has also served as writer, director and voice for more than a dozen characters, including Bob the Tomato. Since the release of the first VeggieTales™ episode in 1993, more than 30 million units have been sold in the series. Vischer and his wife, Lisa, live in the Chicago, IL with their 3 children.

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

    At times I couldn't put it down at other times I had to put it down so I could do other things. If you want to serve Jesus this book is for you. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself." Learn from Phil Vischer's mistakes and what he learned.

    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.
