Review: We Be Big, Rick and Bubba

Synopsis by Booksneeze: 

The story of two unlikely radio hosts and what happened when they followed their faith and instincts. 
Rick & Bubba are the most unlikely broadcast stars imaginable, yet hundreds of thousands of loyal listeners start their day with them every morning. Beyond that, they break the biggest no-no rule for secular radio as they openly share their faith in Christ and their common-sense way of looking at the world. Now, in We Be Big: The Mostly True Story of How We Became Rick & Bubba, readers learn how this unlikely pairing came about. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, this is also the highly personal story of two men who—like most of us—resisted stepping through the doors God opened for them, opting for the easier path when tested. When they finally decided to follow their instincts and their faith, though, not only did they became amazingly successful, but also a truly powerful platform became theirs.
My Thoughts:
I received a complimentary copy from Booksneeze in return for a review.  I was not sure what to expect from this book.  I was pleasantly surprised.  A book about two guys struggling and working as had as they could in pursuit of their dream to work as radio broadcasters.  They are both from the South so I have not had the pleasure of hearing their radio show, I am however glad I was able to read this book.  It was like sitting at the kitchen table talking with old friends and listening to them recall their tails of how they became starts on the radio.  When reading it was like I could almost even hear them talking with their Southern accents.  Never letting go of their faith in GOD  and with the love of their family's and friends their dreams came.  
I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a good feel book, this is the right one.
