    I love watching Chip and JoJo on Fixer Upper. I have been a fan since I caught an episode mid first season. This book gives some insight into their lives that explains why we all love them so much. They are the real deal, everything's not perfect, God and family loving couple. I am happy for their success and all the ways they can reach people.

  • Ryan and Heather Vidal - Feel great but don't last

    I bought these boots for a three day hiking trip. I wore them a few times to break them in first as you should any boot. They fit great and feel good. The reason for the one star is after only a few trips out the sole on one the shoes is starting to separate from the boot. I would expect this after somewhat extended use but not after roughly 30 miles of hiking. I will probably just super glue it back on but won't be trusting these for any extended uses again.

  • Michalla Wainwright - Could be A LOT better

    This book had so many errors in it! It's awful! From grammatical errors, to giving the wrong answers & formulas! I bought this book so I had something to study with to HELP me! & I second guess all the answers & tips because of all the things that I have found wrong in the book. I wouldn't recommend this version to anyone & I pray & hope I still pass my test. & if I do... It won't be because of this book.
