My copy arrived today, and boy did Multnomah do a great job with it. The cover art is outstanding. Crisp, clear, and catchy. The back cover reads:
“Most people don’t expect you to understand what we’re going to tell you in this book. And even if you understand, they don’t expect you to care. And even if you care, they don’t expect you to do anything about it. And even if you do something about it, they don’t expect it to last. We do.”
The jacket includes a great photograph and overview of the book. On the inside, I was intrigued that the foreword was supplied by Chuck Norris. He writes:
“Today we live in a culture that promotes comfort, not challenges. Everything is about finding ways to escape hardship, avoid pain, and dodge duty. In the past, young people were expected to make significant contributions to society. Today, our culture expects very little from teens–not much more than staying in school and doing a few chores. A sad consequence of such low expectations is that life-changing lessons go unlearned.
To whom can we turn to motivate a new generation of giants? I’ve found the answer. Alex and Brett Harris and their new book, Do Hard Things.”
