I have a somewhat reliable system for rating books over on Goodreads. If I really hated it, I give it one star. If it was okay, I give it two stars. If I really liked the book, it probably got three stars. If I loved it, stayed up all night reading it and couldn't put it down, it most likely got four. I save my five star ratings for those books that I not only love, read all night and couldn't put down, but also changed me somehow. These are the books that stay with me long after I have read them, and cause me to rethink the way I am living my life. Simply put, I only give five stars to a book that has made me a better person because I have read it.
The Road Show by Braden Bell is one of those books.
