This book just wasn’t for me. It has a lot of favorable reviews on Amazon, so apparently it’s helpful for a lot of people. One of the main problems I had was that about 80-90% of the material was already familiar to me. I had already learned it through life or from reading other books. … More Review – Welcome to Adulting
I really enjoyed reading this! I read the whole thing in one day. It’s the kind of book that’s a lot of fun to read. It’s entertaining, and I learned a lot from it.
The book gives a sense of who Case is, his personality and character, which is something we don’t really get to know about any of the players from their public presence alone. The writing is good and uses some unique phraseology. It’s honest, funny, down to earth, and tells so many great stories. I was amazed at how many famous players and coaches Case has interacted with. … More Review – Playing for More
I think many young women would enjoy this book and find a lot of helpful advice in it. For me, parts of it were helpful and other parts weren’t as helpful. I thought the book might have been more helpful for someone younger, probably mid to late teens. … More Review – Am I Enough?
This is probably the most difficult book I’ve ever read. Not difficult in the same way as a classic might be with hard-to-understand language. No, the writing was easy to understand. In fact, it was vivid, sometimes shocking. … More Review – Courage, Dear Heart: Letters to a Weary World
It will take quite a while for me to soak up everything in this book. I’ll return to it many times to read portions of it. You can tell how much I liked a book by how much writing there is in the margins. This one has a lot of writing in the margins. … More Review – The Struggle is Real: Getting better at life, stronger in faith, and free from the stuff keeping you stuck
This book was so interesting and so much fun to read that I eagerly turned the pages and read through it quickly. I generally read more “can’t-put-it-down” fiction books than nonfiction, but this is a nonfiction book that I couldn’t stop reading. … More Review – The 5 Love Languages; Singles Edition
Exactly the kind of book I’ve been looking for! I’ve known for a long time that I wanted and needed to read a book about training my mind to be stronger and less negative, only I didn’t know where to start. This is a great book to start with. It’s one that’s like an athlete’s mental toughness book, but for all women. … More Review – Battle Ready
I think this is a good book, but just not one that I enjoyed very much. I did learn from it, and I appreciated its unique perspective. It did help me grow as a person, and it gave me a lot to think about. … More Review – The Return: Reflections on Loving God Back
I had different reactions to the first and second halves of the book, so I’ll divide this review into two sections.
Parts I and II of the Book
I found these parts of the book to be so helpful. The message is desperately needed in today’s world. Reading this made me feel like I was taking a deep, refreshing breath of air. The book takes a step back from all the conflict and disagreements and shows a glimpse of a better way. It gives practical suggestions for developing character traits such as wisdom and tact, gentleness and strength, and humility and courage (the character traits are paired together). … More Review – Dancing in No Man’s Land: Moving With Peace and Truth in a Hostile World
My experience with this book alternated between good and bad. Some parts of it are inspiring and practical. Some parts I do not agree with (although I acknowledge I could be wrong). This was a very difficult, and sometimes confusing book for me. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. I think the way I reacted to it has a lot to do with my personal background and situation and less to do with the content of the book. … More Review – Practicing the King’s Economy
