Review: Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into your Comfortable Life

WreckedWrecked: When a Broken World Slams into your Comfortable Life by Jeff Goins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It seems as though our world today is filled with all sorts of warnings. Caution! Hot coffee. Warning, smoking may cause cancer. Beware of dog! I’m not quite sure how Wrecked, by Jeff Goins was allowed to be published without so much as a read at your own risk! label. Goins has a way with words that not only tells a captivating story, but pricks the soul of the reader, drawing them in to the story itself. The beauty of Wrecked is that Goins shares from a place of personal, raw honesty. A quality that allows the reader to believe the words on the page and be emotionally, mentally, and spiritually impacted. The impact is nothing short of a gut check at the deepest level. Goins holds back nothing, as he pushes the reader to the point where a choice must be made; stay the same or become wrecked. As much as instinct begs that everything stay the same, many will find it too difficult and costly to do so; opting instead for the necessary pain and discomfort of becoming wrecked and making a world shaking difference.

This is not a book for the faint of heart however, as your heart will be challenged to consider the thing that’s been pushed to the dark recesses of your thinking. Wrecked is not a book to be read while on vacation, or casually while passing the time between your kid’s soccer and basketball practice. However, if you know your life is begging you to shake the dust from its dry old bones, then I’d encourage that you read with reckless abandon. Read with your heart and mind wide open, and brace for impact, as impact will most certainly come your way. To state it another way, to read Wrecked is to play a game of Chicken with the status quo. Who’ll flinch first? Go get wrecked, I bet you’ll look back and be glad you did.

Wrecked is a must share with a friend book, no doubt.
