Stovall is a highly celebrated motivational speaker, weightlifter, investment broker, and entrepreneur. He is a man who has experienced a great deal and knew Howard Stevens very well, as he was his driver for many years. Stovall supports his ideas in the book by describing Howard's lessons to Jason and Alexia, which were recorded on DVDs and are played during the trip. The main point of each chapter is supported by the reading of Howard's personal journal, which contain entries that deal with that topic, and then Stovall's own personal insights and opinions. A quote that I think that explains the book is found near the end. "Life indeed is a gift. Often it takes us on a journey to faraway places to be met with exciting people and transforming experiences. Then inevitably, our journey leads us back into the familiar place where we started, but we are somehow changed as we go home to a place we have never been before" (p. 137).
Bottom line, this book is truly amazing. The organization and structure of the book make it easy to read and understand, and the message is very touching. I can think of a verse that goes along perfectly with the point of the book: "My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart" (Proverbs 3:1). I would highly recommend this book to people of college age or older. It will make an impact on all adult readers. Isaac Hamlin, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
