Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a somewhat different take on the general-purpose self-help treatise. Here the listener gets significant faith-based advice on how to prevail amid constant change. Bill DeWees’s fast, hard-hitting delivery is like that of a televangelist. He delivers each “jolt” of simple advice with passion and enthusiasm that is sufficient to keep even the jaded attentive. His narrative style is clear and bold without sounding pretentious. The 25 discrete “jolts” make an excellent structure for the book. Listeners who are new to the self-help genre and those who want an introductory self-improvement book with a Christian orientation will find this wothwhile."

    Bushes

    Three kits hid in the bushes. <p> Tiger-A brown she with black stripes on her back and very long claws hides in the bushes. <br> Leopard-A white she with golden spots sat down. <br> Lion-A golden brown tom sat. Fur curled around his neck like a mane and he had long claws. Fangs peered out of his mouth.
