Book Review: Fully Alive by Ken Davis
This book gave me mixed emotions in more than one way.
Overall, Fully Alive made me both cry and laugh out loud. I appreciate both reactions and felt especially pleased when I reminded myself that, laughter truly is good medicine.
Another reason I had mixed emotions was because for quite a while as I read through this book I thought I had been tricked or deceived into what it was all about—what the topic or category of book this was. All the summaries that I had read from the publisher about this book said nothing about weight loss or fitness. It isn’t the topic that got me upset. I love that topic, being a weight loss coach! It was that it was so unexpected, kind of stuck in there in the middle, and several chapters of it.
After I got over the shock of this unexpected topic inclusion I realized that this book was at least partly beneficial for fitness motivation. That is a wonderful thing if that is what you need. And now, dear readers, you don’t need to be unexpectedly surprised by this topic inclusion. In fact, if you are in need of fitness motivation this is a very worthwhile book!
The whole book was helpful for basic motivation in your walk through life and I found especially helpful the discussion on the necessity of breaking a large goal down into small doable steps.
Also overall I found this book to be an enjoyable and entertaining read. I enjoyed the author’s expert storytelling and loved his authenticity. Don’t expect it to be heavy on doctrine. That’s neither good nor bad. It just depends on what you want or need.
And, yes, he does, near the end, get back to bringing closure to the story from the beginning of the book.
