What would you do to inherit a million dollars? Would you be willing to change your life? Jason Stevens is about to find out in Jim Stovall's The Ultimate Gift.
Red Stevens has died, and the older members of his family receive their millions with greedy anticipation. But a different fate awaits young Jason, whom Stevens, his great-uncle, believes may be the last vestige of hope in the family.
"Although to date your life seems to be a sorry excuse for anything I would call promising, there does seem to be a spark of something in you that I hope we can fan into a flame. For that reason, I am not making you an instant millionaire."
What Stevens does give Jason leads to The Ultimate Gift. Young and old will take this timeless tale to heart.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ultimate Gift?
Inspirational May 25, 2007
Awesome book! A friend introduced me to the book, which is an extremely easy read (it took me about an hour and a half to read). I purchased five copies to give to friends. The book's message is inspirational and its look is great with its ragged page ends. I highly recommend this book to anyone that could use a great message.
Disappointed May 24, 2007
I was under the impression, wrongly, that I was receiving the MOVIE with the Book. I don't care about the promotional DVD, I wanted a copy of the movie (that I have tried to purchase since seeing the movie last winter in Arizona). Still haven't located it.
Great estate plan May 19, 2007
Every grandparent, and parent should send a copy to thier family members
IF ONLY EVERYONE WOULD READ THIS BOOK May 16, 2007
Wow! This book is amazing. I read it and then bought several as gifts for friends and family. A treasure in my book collection forever. Any wealthy person leaving an inheritance should consider some of these life lessons. As a christian I will buy one for the church library as well. I read previous reviews and always recommend reading the book first. I have not seen the movie yet but when I do I will keep an open mind. Happy reading to you all. ;-)
The Ultimate Gift May 14, 2007
Although a little corny and predictable at times, it delivers the message very clearly. Most people can probably look at themselves after reading this book and see a place or two where their priorities are misplaced. As a financial planner, I'll share this book with clients.
