Book Review: All In--Student Edition



Disclosure:  I received a copy of this book to facilitate this review.  All opinion are my own.

All In Student Edition is geared towards young people to encourage their commitment to God by giving 100% to Him.  There are many good points in the book, including ideas from M. Scott Peck’s The Road Less Traveled about the need to be able to delay gratification.  There are many inspirational stories in the book and the author encourages the reader to leave everything behind and go all in and go all out.


I had been looking forward to reading this book as I work with youth and had hoped to take something away that I could pass on.  The overall message of the book is good, yet, I struggled to read it.  The book didn't seem to keep my interest as it seemed repetitive in parts and disjointed in others.  In my opinion, the author seemed to ramble at times and not really drive the message home at other times.  I felt that some of the stories were not fully conclusive for young readers.  I thought this was a book that was geared towards young people, yet I felt some concepts in the book were not explained clearly enough for young people to grasp fully or portrayed in a way that young people could connect.  Maybe I am unclear on the age of the “student” this is geared towards, but I really feel this is geared toward the young adult, and not younger.  That being said, I think there was a great, strong message to take away from this book about living for God.
