This book changed my mission! It helped me to find my own innovative ways to bring the gospel to many more people than I would have if I had simply gone through the motions like many missionaries do. I found the book very easy to understand and immediately helpful in giving me new ideas for my missionary work. This book was crucial in helping me to baptize 6 times more people than my mission's average. I used the concepts often as an Assistant to the President in training the Australia Adelaide Mission and it created a culture of fun and success, we went from averaging 9 baptisms a month to 15 during that time. The book is a quick read, it provided me hope and motivation during difficult seasons of the work, it is easy to understand, and is very much a HOW to book. David Coveys book will give a missionary or potential missionary exciting new approaches and skills and I would fully recommend it to anybody who is engaged in missionary service.
