As you can well imagine, I receive hundreds of books. I generally skim through a few and figure out what they’re about and that’s it. I just don’t have a lot of time.
I started reading yours, however, and was absolutely captured by it. The Integrated Life is filled with very valuable insights and wisdom. I knew you were an amazing guy, but this book really confirms that fact. You’re not only a success in business and a great entrepreneur, but you’re a very good thinker and writer.
I especially loved what you said about work; the compartmentalization, as you call it, is absolutely appalling. There’s a work side of life, a family side of life, a pleasure side of life, a church side of life—this is nonsense. That’s why your title is so much on target…
I’m about two-thirds of the way through the book, but I didn’t want to wait till I finished to write and tell you how much I appreciate it. I have already made notes through the book and have some great stories and examples to use to illustrate my points. This is really great stuff…
God bless you, dear brother.
Yours in His service,
