Salvaged by Roy Goble Review

Salvaged: Leadership Lessons Pulled from the Junkyard
by Roy Goble
Successful Silicon Valley real estate developer and wealth creator Roy Goble shares the surprising lessons he learned as a boy working in his family junkyard. Skillfully uniting the teachings of Jesus with the sometimes messy realities of leading people and getting things done, Salvaged helps leaders at all levels discover powerful opportunities to follow Jesus in the real world--and in surprisingly simple ways.

Working in his dad's junkyard as a kid, Roy had no idea what his future held: an incredibly successful career in commercial real estate, as well as founding and leading multiple ministries, churches, and nonprofits across the globe. So when Roy talks about what it means to follow Jesus daily as a leader, people pay attention. Entrepreneurs, pastors, and managers who learn to lead from Roy won't parrot his jargon or practice his "system"--these men and women will simply know how to lead better.

After a no-nonsense and compelling introduction, Roy delivers 31 of his most surprising, memorable, and practical leadership lessons, many of which are culled from his junkyard days. Each focuses on a personal "junkyard" story, leadership lesson, and comparable Bible passage perfect for daily study. A growth and action section is included after each chapter that gets to the heart of the lesson through thought-provoking questions with action steps designed to be immediately put into practice.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review Q&A- 
- What did you like about the book and why?  The author is very straight forward with his thought and wide open in a way that is funny but serious when needed.  

- What did you not like about the book and why?  It will not go over well with younger children who should not be able to get the more outright humor tones.  I think that if you are sharing with younger readers, you should skin this first and read outloud to omit certain dialogue. 

- What did you learn?  Open minds to the way of the biblical scriptures are always eye opening and easy to read, so learned that this author is super open and pulls not wool over the readers eyes in a way that make this book a really interesting read. 

- To whom would you recommend this book and why? Older aged people who can contain the more blunt language and authors wit.
