What's your Mark?

What's Your Mark contains stories of everyday people – but people who all have one thing in common – they are all leaving their mark in this world. Some of the people are easily recognizable, others you may have never heard of.

The book opens with a reflection on the life of Jesus, and the mark that he left in the world.  This quickly transitions by causing the reader to reflect on the question, “What is my story?  What mark will I leave on the world?”

This book was masterfully produced, appearing in a magazine style layout complete with stunning graphics and photography.  Each story is but a vignette that serves to weave the entire picture together.

While I loved the production quality of this work, and think the main thought is more than compelling, there just is something about this work that doesn’t quite click for me.  While this is an interesting read, it is not the compelling page turner that I thought it could be.  Perhaps all the energy for this project was consumed in the design phase.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through their bloggers review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
