A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

29 09 2009

I reviewed A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller as a Thomas Nelson book review blogger.  You can also read my review on Amazon.

Everyone loves a good story, yet not many people are actually living a good story.  We watch them on TV on in the theatre, but living them requires facing conflict and discomfort.

This is the basic idea woven throughout Donald Miller’s latest book, which is a delightful and thought-provoking read.  I read the book in just two sittings and couldn’t put it down.

In fact, the only time I stopped reading this book was to go live my own story — I was so inspired to face some of my fears that I put the book down and embraced life, with all its conflicts and struggles.

Entrepreneurs are often in the middle of an epic story (for a few good examples, check out Jessica Livingston’s book Founders at Work).  Sometimes it’s hard to look ahead to the transformation that springs out of difficult times, but A Million Miles in a Thousand Years prompts readers to do this and more: to consider their own story that they’re writing, and how it’s changing them.

This is easily the best book I’ve read in the last couple years.
