Book Review: We Be Big: The Mostly True Story of How We Became Rick & Bubba By Rick Burgess and Bill Bussey with Don Keith

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 Review:

With all honestly I had absolutely no idea who Rick and Bubba were when I asked for a review copy of this book.  I love reading and the description of the book looked good so I thought I would take a chance on it.  I do have to say I immensely enjoyed the book.  We Be Big: The Mostly True Story of How We Became Rick & Bubba was a great way to introduce these men to the world or if you already know about these two men it is nice way to let you have a glimpse into what made them who they are.  

Rick and Bubba do seem quite funny and after reading the book I really do want to listen to them sometime and see how great they are live as well.  I was happy to see through their website that I am able to listen to through their site, so without a doubt I guarantee I will be doing that soon.  No matter if you love to read autobiographies or not I really do think this is a book to check out and read.  There had been parts within the book that I did find a little bit slow, but really who does not have times like that in their life.  Being a Mom now, many times I am so thankful for those slow periods in life as they give me some time to take a deep breath and really see what is going on around.    

On their site I saw they are having their 20th anniversary, so they have to be doing something right!  Be sure to check out their website and taken a listen for yourself!
