I enjoyed the principles that are shared in Giving It All Away…and Getting It All Back Again, but many times it felt like I was not the targeted audience. I did continue to read and finish the book. There are good principles about giving that can be applied to anyone’s life.
The first part of the book really felt like it was geared to a demographic older than I am. It introduced me to some principles and thoughts for the future. The other part also didn’t seem to apply to me because I don’t have a huge business to pass on to my children.
I did enjoy reading about what the author is doing. I think it is quite different than most businesses do – in a good way.
Here is some backcover copy:
The life of giving is a life of adventure and risk. But it pays the best rewards for you, your family, and all you touch.
David Green, founder of Hobby Lobby, says true wealth is based on faith, strong family, and generous living. This is his story and more: it is his best advice in print. In it he unpacks the principles that have guided him in growing a small home-based business into a national chain that has prospered beyond his dreams. He shares the inside details of Hobby Lobby’s successful 2014 Supreme Court case and the values that kept his integrity intact. And he describes the wisdom and rewards of raising a loving family and leaving them a legacy—one that does not include his business empire but, rather, the things that make for a rich and lasting heritage.
