Whatever The Cost Book Review


Book Review of Whatever The Cost
by David and Jason Benham

"Facing your fears, dying to your dreams and living powerfully"

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

     This book by famed brothers, David and Jason Benham, shares the journey of the twins chasing their dreams.  They come to a cross-roads in their lives to either sacrifice everything they believe for the sake of their dreams.  Or give up the dream in favor of their core beliefs.  As Jason puts it, "When you hold your dreams with an open hand, God doesn't have to pry your fingers loose when He takes them away."  Both brothers saw MLB careers crash due to injury and a network television program lost; but thy continue pressing on with confidence, courage an a can-do attitude.  The Benham brothers compiled the stories contained in the pages of their new book to demonstrate how to face your fears, die to your dreams, and live powerfully for a greater cause.
     I have mixed feelings about this book.  First of all, it's nothing new.  My husband and I have been living powerfully and goal-oriented for over a decade.  But, I do think that this book would be beneficial for two kinds of people.  Either people that love and have followed the Benham brothers careers and are interested in hearing them drone on about their ins and outs with fame, or a person stalled out trying to keep a dream alive that isn't working anymore.  I found the book to be a little self-serving and without much meat or deep content.  That's my opinion on it.  It would be best for older teens or adults, and I believe men and women alike could enjoy the book.  Am I recommending it, no.
