Flipping Turtles

I’ve recently embraced the bi-modal learning methods that Jeff Bezos talked about when he channeled Steve Jobs at the Amazon event to unveil new Kindles.

Listening to the audio version of Wrecked, I remembered what I love to hear in audio books…the author’s voice.
When you read and listen together, you can catch a better impartation of what the author has to offer. (I have the Kindle version and the audio.)

I enjoy reading what Jeff writes, and also highly recommend his blog, but the audio book is probably far better than the print version, unless you get both of them.

Wrecked is an easy-read, and a must-read, if you want your foundation to grow stronger when your entire world is shaken wrecked.

Jeff will take you to the streets, and deep into the underground catacombs of Nashville’s homeless population, where he’s worked hard to make a difference.

He’ll invite you inside his stream of consciousness, and you’ll understand how we all mature from reckless youth to responsible citizens in our own broken worlds: on-the-road, in-a-job, on-the-mission-field, or in-a-marriage…and what to do when the adventure eventually comes to an end.

Through tales of his activities among the down-and-out, Jeff keeps explaining how he’s trying hard to bring lasting change to an ocean of indifference.

In the end, he keeps flipping turtles right side up, in an effort to save them (my interpretation of the cover image), only to learn in the end that he is one of them.

And so are we.
