I have written 58 Christian books myself and as a writer, I love to read in my spare time, and I am especially impressed with Jimmy's writing style. He is honest, transparent, a bit of a bloke and charming. He is sensitive, caring, and precious in the way he opens up to the readers with what he has to say. I am enjoying this book and for the price, I know I have hundreds of pages now that will simply be a bonus, because the story you have given me enough has come true. You have already given me enough and shown me what a beautiful individual you really are.
If you read this jimmy, my prayers are going up for you tonight.
I have read another yarn of Jimmy's now about a racehorse he calls Big Jim. It was also endearing to me as I once owned a share in a racehorse and used to get caught up in the racing scene. Jimmy can certainly rip a touching yarn and this book is full of promise
Clearly written from a happier place of love, family and acceptance.
A stark contrast to the often traumatic and painful lonely journey outlined in the earlier two memoirs.
My favourite story is about Jimmy's cameo in Kirin J Callahan's song & video for Big Enough in 2017 which has become a meme. It's a hoot.
All told by a man with the biggest heart in rock n roll. In all of his 3 books, Jimmy completely avoids all of the over hyped and self mythologised cliched BS. He just lays it all out in its truth, openness and honesty. An absolute joy to read. Some heroes don't wear capes!
