I was skeptical when I saw that the author had been on The Apprentice as I'm not a fan of pop culture and reality shows. Saab is engaging as he narrates a story of real life struggles with faith and life. He has wonderful insights and is as authentic as you could hope in author.
I read this on Kindle and then ordered a copy of the book itself, though out of print, it's not only one I want on my shelf for future reference but I may also purchase a few more for friends not inclined to use Kindles. This is a must have for young Christian men and would be also helpful for many young women wondering where all the "good" guys are.
