Could happiness lie in helping others and being open to accepting help yourself? Mentors: How to Help and Be Helped describes the impact that a series of significant people have had on the author - from the wayward youths he tried to emulate growing up in Essex, through the first ex-junkie sage, to the people he turns to today to help him be a better father. It explores how we all - consciously and unconsciously - choose guides, mentors and heroes throughout our lives and examines the new perspectives they can bring.

I give this 5 stars because it clearly lays out what you need to do to either be a good mentor or chose a good mentor. As someone who has been emotionally abused by a mentor before, I wish I listened to this book before! Would have saved me some unnecessary hurt. However, now I go forth and chose a decent mentor! Thank you Russell. Your honesty, care, openness and strength displayed when you’re being vulnerable is most inspiring. You’re amazing.

The Culture of Honor is a book of reformation. It is intended to disrupt our current model of authority. Jesus put it like this in Matthew 20:25-26: "But Jesus called them to Himself and said, You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. Those with power must learn to empower those around them or we will never build Heaven on the Earth."

I really enjoyed this book. It’s very easy to listen to but it gently deals with healthy confrontation which is so important. This book demonstrates a lot grace and it’s refreshing as it stands out legalism.

I know some people think he preaches the American dream, but I disagree. I believe he focused on the positive and realistic. God is such an amazing God and we fall sight of this because we focus on the negative first. He reminds us to change our thinking and it's so refreshing. I start my day with this. I don't like books that talk of so much unanswered prayer because I believe that God can answer us in so many other ways and it's discouraging to read a book about negatives. We have no idea what God is doing sometimes and we must focus on the positive when He HAS answered us the way we realise He has. This is an encouraging and uplifting book which will leave you with energy and exhilaration for Jesus!

This audiobook is Nick Carter's autobiography and self-help hybrid, in which he chronicles his struggles with a dysfunctional family and the unimaginable rigors of becoming an internationally successful pop-star at the age of 12. From his battle with addiction to serious health complications and the pain of his younger sister's tragic death, Nick leaves nothing to the imagination and offers true and heartfelt advice to help listeners overcome obstacles in their own lives.

I think people write off celebrities far too quickly. This is the honest story of a man who has fallen into the Hollywood trap of drug, sex and alcohol abuse. This isn't a book full of Judy gossip in case some fans are disappointed, but it is a self help book for those who could be facing the same demons Nick once was. It is an eye opener, because as a fan of Nick and the BSB, I had no idea as to what depths his suffering was like. I am so pleased he has found the faith, strength and courage to get to where he is today - happily married, a father and sober. He is an inspiration to many and I hope this book saves lives.

Crashing the chatterbox = Overpowering lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God. “I used to think that someone who struggled with the kinds of weaknesses I deal with daily was useless to God. I felt so often like I was drowning in internal dialogue I couldn’t control. It had been the soundtrack of my life for as long as I could remember.

Steven Furtick is probably one of the few pastors who bothers to narrate his own story. This is captivating and so much better than hearing a robotic generic American voice even for books of English author CS Lewis! This story will prepare you to fight when you feel like you've got no fight left. To squish the Devils lies and to untangle the ghastly thoughts of daily life and traumatic events. One to read and you won't be disappointed. Thank you Steven!
