What made the experience of listening to Successful Failure the most enjoyable?
The "real life" issue of failure being addressed as something to be expected and beneficial. Great narration by the author.
What other book might you compare Successful Failure to and why?
I don't know about comparing it to another book. I would say I read it after I read Tim Keller's "Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering." The two are alike in that they treat the issues of pain, suffering, and failure as life norms. That, as the Bible teaches, these issues are part of normal life to be expected. Also that when they happen they can actually enrich us for the life that goes on after they occur. They don't have to destroy us. What great, wonderful hope.
What about Devery Youngblood’s performance did you like?
Down to earth quality.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It caused me to both laugh and cry. It also reached in and reminded me of some wisdom stored away from the Bible and from my father. I knew some of these things, but when heartache occurs, (especially multiple heartaches in rapid succession) it's like they have to be re-learned on a new level.
Any additional comments?
Though Youngblood states this book is not a book about his faith, he does not hesitate to share that his faith is so important to him that it cannot be separated from his story. He does refer to it quite frequently, but he is not clear on exactly where he stands. Maybe that is by design.
