A profound follow-up to the bestselling book and major motion picture, The Ultimate Gift. When Jason Stevens found out he had to jump through hoops to maybe get an unnamed inheritance from his billionaire grandfather, he was not amused. By the time he'd finished learning the lessons he'd become a different man. Ready to tackle the duties of running a multi-billion dollar trust, he is once again derailed, this time by his pugnacious family. Not content with their cattle ranches and oil fields, his aunts, uncles, and even his parents are determined to see every last dime entrusted to their own self-serving pockets.
With none of the reluctance he initially showed for the 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 Gift, anyone can lead The Ultimate Life.

Bill M4 Stars Out Of 5June 13, 2008Bill MAfter reading The Ultimate Gift and watching the movie, it was good to see what happens next to the characters. I found myself laughing throughout the book, which I couldn't put down and finished in just a few days. I hope they make The Ultimate Life into a movie as well!
Pat Chadwick5 Stars Out Of 5March 11, 2008Pat ChadwickI watched the movie The Ultimate Gift and thought it was a really great story. A story that I could learn a lot from. This book take up where the movie left off and reveals the dynamics in different types of families.This is one of the best books I've ever read. It holds a persons interest right from the beginning. It has its serious moments, yet there is plenty of humor.The characters were very life-like. I especially liked Jason, the main character, who took months and a lot of thought to prove himself. Judge Stanford A. Davis was a judge we would all like to have in our court system; he was a man who cared.The ending was a little different than I thought it would be, I'm glad it wasn't predictable. A great read!

Victoria Jones5 Stars Out Of 5December 1, 2007Victoria JonesI read the first book (Ultimate Gift) sometime ago which was very good. The Ultimate Life is just as enjoyable as the first. It touches your heart even without trying; and if you let the wisdom of the book take hold of you, you have to be changed by the end of the book.
