While parts of this book spoke to me more than other parts, I feel that most people would find something useful within its pages. Jared explains why it's good to be a loser at the bottom of the Christian ladder, how you can learn to listen to and confide in God more, and how to focus on God's glory and grace instead of your own behaviors and actions. He reminds us that even at our worst - when we feel as though we're lower than low - God is there to listen to us, hold our hand, and help us rise up to meet Him.
Overall, I'm giving this book 4/5 stars. It's a good theme, with a solid foundation and a witty writing style. But I often found myself re-reading in an effort to determine how the section I was on fit in to the lesson of the chapter or the book as a whole.
