Editorial Reviews


Most books on leadership and faith are either too abstract (boring and impractical) or too folksy (lightweight and self-absorbed). Roy’s is neither. Instead, he deftly ties together hilarious misadventures, keen observations of human nature, and a close study of Scripture. The result is a book packed with memorable, practical leadership insights. No matter your job title, don’t overlook the wisdom that comes from this junkyard entrepreneur–theologian. This is a rare book written by a rare individual. Josh Kwan, partner and cofounder of Praxis

Roy Goble is one of the finest leaders I know! He grew up in a junkyard, which taught him that even the unlikeliest characters can get the job done . . . often right under the noses of the powerful and privileged. That’s what Roy sees in Scripture, too! Looking at the Bible through the lens of leadership―and vice versa―allows him to celebrate and cultivate the leadership ability of all people, regardless of their station in life. Although Roy is successful, he’s also humble, which is reflected in this book’s edgy sense of humor! This timely book is written from a grace-filled heart and years of practical experience. It’s a fresh and effective addition to our necessary conversation about true leadership, and not just for those our culture assumes will lead. I highly recommend it! Brenda Salter McNeil, author of Roadmap to Reconciliation

There are as many kinds of leaders as there are companies. What matters is not the style of a leader but rather the results. I know Roy to be a leader who drives the most essential sort of organizational growth: character. He may not know a thing about cloud technology, but I’d hire him tomorrow simply for his insights about people and purpose. Antonio Neri, president and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise

The scope of Roy’s leadership journey is staggering. His stories will jar dormant parts of your brain into life, and his insights from those stories will have you thinking about leadership and following Jesus in new and refreshing ways. The pages of this book will make you laugh and drop your jaw, perhaps two of the most powerful ways to help us reimagine. Nancy Ortberg, CEO of Transforming the Bay with Christ

Entertaining, easy to read, down-to-earth, and authentic. The levity and stories of an era I remember all too well brought transparency and made for good reflection. The deep leadership takeaways were there in a vernacular that made them thought-provoking. Al Miyashita, NYC city director of The Navigators

Salvaged is the common-sense leadership guide you’ve been waiting for. I say “guide” because Roy doesn’t insist on one-size-fits-all conclusions. Rather, he explores the terrain of everyday leadership, from the junkyard all the way to the boardroom, and invites his readers along on the journey. By turns self-effacing, serious, and humorous, Roy encourages readers to ask better questions, to demand better answers, and most of all to laugh at themselves. No matter their occupation, readers will find the practical wisdom they need to take their leadership ability to the next level. Mark Zoradi, CEO of Cinemark Holdings and former president of Walt Disney Motion Picture Group

“This book sucks” . . . is something I’ve never said after reading one of Roy’s books. Not your typical regurgitated tome on leadership, Salvaged plunges deep into the reality of working with people―it’s a messy business, regardless of whether it happens in the boardroom or in the junkyard. With his trademark humor on full display, Roy uncovers deep truths about real-world, biblical leadership while also delivering a genuinely FUN read. His colorful characters and lighthearted parables are as memorable as they are entertaining―these are lessons that will actually stick! Jon Beekman, CEO of Man Crates

I’ve read very few books on leadership that help me in the unique and nuanced situations that arise each day, but Salvaged does exactly that. Roy Goble, like me, had a father who greatly influenced his leadership style. Now Roy looks back with the eye of a master storyteller, distilling his varied experiences into relevant lessons we all need. Being a results-driven, Jesus-following businessperson is not for wimps―but Jesus wasn’t a wimp either! Jody Vanderwel, managing partner of Grand Angels Venture Fund II

Salvaged is the leadership book I have been waiting for. Through the power of story, Roy uses humor, honesty, and the cold hard truth about teams, self-awareness, and working with people. This is a journey through life lessons and the wisdom that comes from turning wounds into the evidence of healing. The authenticity displayed by Roy makes you want to sit down with him to hear even more. You will be captivated by the examples and stories while thinking, I can’t believe he just said that. Salvaged is a refreshing read on leadership that lets you know you’re not alone and that even in the junkyard, you can turn a mess into a miracle. This is more than a leadership book; it’s a redeeming therapy session for anyone looking for a new way forward in the workplace and in life. Romal Tune, author of Love Is an Inside Job: Getting Vulnerable with God

Goble wrote a book? Rich, junkyard coworker from back in the day

From the Back Cover

Every story in this book is true.
Rats raining from the rafters . . . homemade bazookas launching tennis balls into space . . . Roy Goble has seen a lot. A successful entrepreneur, an experienced real estate investor, and a committed Christian, Roy is regularly sought out as a mentor for people who want to live faithfully and successfully. Now you can hop into his pickup and take a ride with him through 31 stories about following Jesus and leading in life.

Rich with insights from the Scriptures and the blue-collar business world, Salvaged inspires purposeful leadership―whether you’re in a junkyard, in a Silicon Valley corporate office, or anywhere in between.

“Nothing Roy does as a grown-up surprises me. . . . Leadership is built into his character, and he’s never tuned it out or turned it off.”
―From the foreword by Bob Goff

After growing up helping his dad with the family junkyard, Roy Goble took over the family’s real estate business. Since then, he’s continued to wrestle with the implications of following Jesus for business leaders and wealth creators. He is the CEO of Goble Properties, a director of PathLight International, and the author of Junkyard Wisdom.

Roy Goble grew up working in his father's junkyard, where he learned to take apart absolutely anything and to evaluate everything for the value of its parts. After studying economics and business at Westmont College, and marrying his high school sweetheart, D'Aun, he joined his family's growing real estate business.

As the business flourished, he experienced the complexity of creating wealth while following Jesus. He began to wrestle with what he knew about business and what Jesus was calling him to be and do, beginning a decades-long quest for a way to understand his place in God's kingdom and in a global society.

Today he runs a real estate investment company based in Silicon Valley, leads the ministry PathLight International, and serves on multiple boards-while still finding time to visit and learn from friends and ministry partners around the world.

Following Jesus as a wealth creator has turned out to be harder and better than he ever imagined, and sometimes he misses the simplicity of selling parts in the junkyard. After thirty-five years of marriage, however, D'Aun tells him he already owns too many old cars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading this is like spending time with a friend
By Steve Stong on February 18, 2019
If this is your first time being introduced to Junkyard Wisdom and Salvaged, welcome. Reading the books, or listening to Salvaged is like meeting a long lost friend. Honestly, this reads with the humor, ease, wisdom, friendliness and honesty of a trusted friend. Admittedly, Roy has a bit of an edge, and wry humor, mixed with kind words and wisdom. It seems as if Roy was listening to concerns and and then addresses it. He has been listening for a long time. What he responds may not be aligned with your own ideas, but you will think and then you will think some more. Reading Salvaged is just like the experience of spending time with Roy. I encourage you to explore the book, the friendship and your own thoughts about what comes to your heart and mind. Read, start a conversation, and share what you have learned, then pass it on.
Happy Reading,

5.0 out of 5 stars Wisdom, wit, grace, master story telling
By Jason M on January 8, 2019
With wisdom, wit and the exact amount of grace and Truth Roy Goble has written a leadership book for everyone. As a master story teller Roy weaves wisdom from the ages into 31 “drawing you in” stories/chapters that are real life stuff from his time growing up in the junkyard biz. You could read each chapter in about 5 mins and use it as a month long devotion or just read it as I did in one setting.
