One Big Thing: Discovering What You Were Born to Do

Phil Cooke, read by the author. Oasis Audio, unabridged, four CDs, 3.5 hrs., $19.99 ISBN 978-1-61375-130-5
In this self-help guide, motivational speaker Cooke seeks to assist people in finding their unique destinies via asking pointed questions to facilitate the self-discovery process. Along the way, Cooke dips liberally into anecdotes and quotes from sources as diverse as Mark Twain and Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk. As a narrator, Cooke offers up a breezy but sincere delivery that showcases his public speaking background. As he imparts his philosophy, Cooke occasionally gets so excited his reading shifts from that of motivational speaker to life coach and manic cheerleader. However, that enthusiasm is wholly in keeping with the book’s tone and intent, and it will likely register with listeners—many of whom may be dissatisfied with the direction their lives have taken. A Thomas Nelson hardcover. (July)
