My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A short read? Yes. A great read? Not bad at all, it depends on the individual reading the book in my opinion. I would not say this was the best book about a person carrying baggage (issues, problems, etc.) around with them, but I would say it was the most eccentric book I have ever read about people carrying baggage around with them.
I think that David Rawlings came up with the perfect way to get people to think about the baggage they carry with them on a daily basis. I mean what would you do if you lost your baggage at the airport and they led you to a totally different building to get your baggage and some man walked out claiming to be the baggage handler and sits down on a couch and starts talking to you about why you’re carrying around all of this baggage? I know what I would have done in all reality before I even left with them. But that is neither here nor there right now.
The book is about us carrying around all of the baggage we carry, and for what? Needlessly. A single tear streaked down the Baggage Handler’s face. “That’s been there a very long time. A very long time. I’m sorry about what has happened….but you don’t need to carry this baggage. You have a choice” I received this book from the publisher Thomas Nelson, through the BookLook Bloggers book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
