The Free Book is just okay

Brian Tome's Free Book is pretty much stating all the obvious, in my opinion. There is no spectacular revelation between the covers that would warrant reading it. Tome seems to be trying to hard to write a good book that it comes across as superficial. I'm sure Tome has great intentions, and there are good nuggets in the book, but a lot of it feels like he's trying to make a really cool name for himself.

Tome's rant about motorcycle laws, for example, seems indulgent and is, in my opinion, rebellious. Jesus didn't teach rebellion against laws. The Bible tells us to give honor where honor is due; pray for those in authority so we can live a quiet and peaceable life; and so on.

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars overall. It's just "okay".
