The popular psychologist, bestselling author, and radio/television personality uses humor to reveal 10 life-changing principles about God, based on the wisdom he learned from King Solomon. After an inauspicious start--Leman says his younger self was "a wise guy, a goofball, and a comedian"--the words of Proverbs 3:1-6 became his road map as he identified the choices that led to to his win-win life. Narrator Jon Gauger's amused tone is clear, and his delivery is well paced and authentic as he draws listeners into the often laugh-out-loud details of Leman's experiences. Gauger's insightful portrayal of Leman's epiphany is warmly characterized and delivered with well-timed pauses. Overall, his appealing narration engages listeners on the topics of God, purpose, and finding meaning in life. G.D.W. AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine
Kevin Leman---one-time rabble-rouser and janitor, now psychologist and humorist---employs 10 quotes from King Solomon, taken from the Book of Proverbs, to help people rejuvenate themselves. For Leman, much of this revitalization comes from identifying the teachable moments that occur in our lives and taking advantage of those opportunities. This audio edition is ably narrated by Jon Gauger, who conveys Lehmans earnestness, spirituality, and humor. Many performances of self-help and spiritual books are either too stodgy or so intense they seem artificial, but Gauger finds a perfect balance. Hes folksy, charming, and engagingand this results in an audiobook thats both a fun listen and easy to process.
