Take Time for Your Own Gut Check

At first glance, most of my readers might not think a book entitled Gut Check: Confronting Love, Work, and Manhood in Your Twenties would be one of this Catholic Mom's favorites. But you'd be wrong - it truly is one of the best books I've read this year. You can read my interview with the book's author Tarek Saab here and please seriously consider buying this one - you will be glad you made the time to read it.

He sent me a copy of his book and I also greatly enjoyed it and reviewed it here:

Jeff,
Thanks so much for sharing your review. I enjoyed reading it! I truly think this book has something for everyone and that Tarek is an incredible inspiration.
Looking forward to meeting you in Atlanta!

Lisa,

I bought this book, after hearing Tarek on the IPadre #102 podcast, as I have two sons - 20 (Jr in college) and 18 (to be freshman). I placed the book in my eldest son's room before he returned home from school. To my surprise and extreme joy, he returned it to me within a week of returning and said it was a valuable read. I don't think my 18 yr old is ready for it - seniors in high school are not quite into this overall topic. :(
