I have long been intrigued by the Robertsons and how they became rich and famous. I initially thought they were dumb rednecks that got lucky and figured out a way to get rich in a fluke. I could not have been more wrong. This book opens your eyes to who and what this family really is. They are hard-working, loyal people and their dedication to their family is admirable. I learned that this family is far from stupid or reckless like I initially expected. Instead, they risked everything and worked tirelessly to make their father's dream come true. This book sends an excellent message all to readers of all ages. They don't drink, party, or behave like animals. Instead they serve as role models. While this book does have a fairly heavy presence of religion in it, it is not the focal point. I would suggest this book as an easy read with multiple short and humorous stories to keep the reader's attention.
