Incredibly Inspiring!

“Everyday Greatness” is one of the best gift/ coffee table books of our time. The introduction and commentary by Stephen Covey is nothing less that brilliant and incredibly inspiring. The book is so well organized and written in such a way that the stories of perseverance against impossibilities will cause you to do some serious soul searching. Your perspective on life is sure to change and you will find yourself digging your heals in deeper and opening your heart and mind to your purpose in life.

I would highly recommend this book to readers of all walks of life and of all ages. (Great graduation gift!) It is easy to read and hard to put down. The stories within each page are at times gut wrenching, yet inspirational and uplifting. The purpose of this book is clear: to bring you to a place of searching for your purpose and potential and inspiring you to persevere. As a Christian, the only thing I would point out in this book is that it does not bridge a connection between the Christian faith and examining one’s purpose. I would caution that although these are truly inspirational stories, the Christian life should also entail the greater purpose of leading people to Christ and should include less of an emphasis on “success” in this life. “Everyday Greatness” is important when it is furthering the Kingdom of God and bringing glory to God; in the end, all else will be forgotten. That being said, this is truly a book worth having and giving to others!
