I received this book from the author and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest opinion.
Do you strive to be "known", fear being forgotten, insignificant and not leaving your mark on the world or maybe just in your home or community? Why do so many of us, post frequently on social media, start blogs, donate money so our names can be on a brick, or work hard to leave a legacy? Whether we admit it or not, it may stem from the fear of becoming insignificant... We do not want to be forgotten.
I struggled to get through this book, not because it wasn't good, but because the content is mostly factual (many examples and lists of events, people, accomplishments, etc); and I was not able to intake as much at one time, as with a typical book such as a fiction or non-fiction. There is certainly a lot of information included. For instance, did you know that Robert Shields kept a diary that chronicled every five minutes of his life from 1972 until a stroke disabled him in 1997? It totaled 37.5 million words and filled 94 boxes. He believed discontinuing his diary would be like "turning off my life". He wrote about his bowel movements, dreams, toe nail clippings.... get the idea?
This may not be an easy book to read for some, but for those searching for significance, the facts and supporting Scriptures are valuable information in leading a successful life without the pressures society puts on us. Each chapter includes a study guide with questions and food for thought.
