As you know from my first book recommendation installment, from time to time I’m so moved by a book that I feel compelled to tell anyone I can about it. Around the office, some call it “Byron’s book club.”
The Ultimate Gift by Jim Stovall is my latest one.
Simply put, it blew me away. It inspired me and reinforced lessons that I tell my kids all the time – be a good person; then be a better person; and ALWAYS work hard and NEVER feel entitled. It also reminded me how important it is to be a student of life and to be grateful.
The story focuses on a wealthy man who passes away and leaves his great nephew nothing … except The Ultimate Gift. I won’t give away too much, but let’s just say the Gift is one that keeps on giving (sort of like life insurance!). The messages the great nephew receives along the way are beyond valuable.
It’s fiction, and clever fiction at that. In the real world, the best gift we can usually leave our family after we die is … you guessed it, MONEY! If I can leave my family financially secure after my death – and I plan on doing that – then I’ll die a VERY happy man.
