Summary

New York Times Bestseller!

What happens when we give away love like we're made of it?

In his entertaining and inspiring follow-up to the New York Times bestselling phenomenon Love Does, Bob Goff takes readers on a journey into the secret of living without fear, constraint, or worry. The path toward the liberated existence we all long for is found in a truth as simple to say as it is hard to do: love people, even the difficult ones, without distinction and without limits.

Driven by Bob's trademark storytelling, Everybody, Always reveals the lessons Bob learned--often the hard way--about what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction. From finding the right friends to discovering the upside of failure, Everybody, Always points the way to embodying love by doing the unexpected, the intimidating, the seemingly impossible. Whether losing his shoes while skydiving solo or befriending a Ugandan witch doctor, Bob steps into life with a no-limits embrace of others that is as infectious as it is extraordinarily ordinary. Everybody, Always reveals how we can do the same.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In delivering the audio edition of the follow-up to his 2012 inspirational self-help guide, Love Does, Goff-a human-rights activist, attorney, and speaker-brings an affable and casual style that befits his laid-back San Diego surfer persona. Goff tackles some weighty topics related to the Christian commandment to love the unlovable, particularly with regard to his encounters with the perpetrators of child sacrifice in Uganda. Yet, he manages to project a natural sense of ease and calm without coming across as flippant. Goff's voice sounds both sincere and humble when recounting the more personal anecdotes in the narrative-most notably, one about an encounter with a slow-moving rental car agent who strains Goff's patience. His delivery is conversational, varied enough in tone and pitch to keep listeners engaged but not as intense as his charged motivational talks. Goff's earnest rendering of memorable catchphrases-such as the recurring reference to his wife as "Sweet Maria"-provides a human touch that accentuates the warm tones of the message. Fans of Goff will flock to this audiobook. A Thomas Nelson hardcover. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
