When I first saw the title of this book, I expected it to be a motivational type book, the kind I've read a thousand times before, and, quite frankly am tired of. "Love Does" by Bob Goff was a life changing read for me, so seeing that he wrote the forward gave me a bit of a clue as to what I might find inside, but also could have easily been a publicity stunt. Right from the beginning, Mike Foster begins with his personal story of why he needed a "second chance" and it's a whopper. Although the story is tragic, and nothing I would wish upon anyone, I do feel like him sharing it gave him some credibility as to why he is able to write about a second chance - he truly has lived it. He throws in enough humor, real life advice, and personal stories from his own life to make it interesting, and almost read like a cross between a memoir and self help book. I was pleasantly surprised, and really enjoyed the book.
