Now a New York Times Bestseller! As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren't good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean's office for seven days until they finally let him enroll. Bob Goff has become something of a legend, and his friends consider him the world's best-kept secret. Those same friends have long insisted he write a book. What follows are paradigm shifts, musings, and stories from one of the world's most delightfully engaging and winsome people. What fuels his impact? Love. But it's not the kind of love that stops at thoughts and feelings. Bob's love takes action. Bob believes Love Does. When Love Does, life gets interesting. Each day turns into a hilarious, whimsical, meaningful chance that makes faith simple and real. Each chapter is a story that forms a book, a life. And this is one life you don't want to miss. Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude just might inspire you to be secretly incredible, too.

I am more than half way through this book. It's suppose to be inspiring--and it is. But, I have found myself laughing Out Loud several times. Who doesn't need a book like "that?"

Humorous stories of successes and failures in Bob’s life, to remind us of the big picture. It’s all about love, and to love greatly we’re reminded to transcend saying nice things to the next level of doing.

Too "Jesus-ey" for me....

The kind of book you'll want to read slowly, a chapter or two a night so you can absorb it. I wish that all of us could live life as fully as Bob does--and this might be a book to help you do that.
