I was hopeful this book would be something I'd hold onto and readily pass along, but it's not. (I'm reviewing the Kindle version, I actually think this book may be better as hardback/paperback . . . at times it seemed unorganized in pattern and layout) The part I LOVED about this book is the "faith based" reading. The few sections that dove deep into Scripture were nuggets I highlighted and found to be powerful. But, the rest was quite disappointing to me. I felt like it was a lot of: "do" this, "don't" do that. And the bucket lists were geared to those who are financially well off. For those of us who are middle to low income, there is no hope of completing MOST of the items on the suggested bucket lists. In fact, reading through them can be downright depressing. I thought the "don't use a credit card" was repeated a little too often. Overall, the message seemed shallow. None of the bucket list items seemed to take me deeper in my faith and make me a stronger person in Christ. I felt like it was all about the "experience" here on earth, with no focus on eternity, which contradicts Jesus' teachings. So, this is what disappointed me about the book. I wish the book would have been centered around a life in Christ.
