I Am Second
The stories are good - don't get me wrong. Each one just lacks the power or personality that the videos have.
I think what made me feel this way was the way the book is written. Rather than each person telling their own story, there's a strange back-and-forth between the subjects and the narrator. It doesn't really flow, and often I found myself having to go back and read over a paragraph to make sure I was reading it from the right perspective (either the narrator's or the subject's).
All in all, it's not a bad book. It's a nice addition to the videos, and some folks will likely enjoy it. I just think it would have been better to hear each person tell their own story without the extra "dressing up."
Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson through BookSneeze - their book review program. I wasn't required to post a positive review. These are my own opinions on this book.
