Publisher's Summary

New York Times best seller!

What happens when we give away love like we're made of it?

In his entertaining and inspiring follow-up to the New York Times best-selling phenomenon Love Does, Bob Goff takes readers on a journey into the secret of living without fear, constraint, or worry. The path toward the liberated existence we all long for is found in a truth as simple to say as it is hard to do: love people, even the difficult ones, without distinction and without limits. 

Driven by Bob’s trademark storytelling, Everybody, Always reveals the lessons Bob learned - often the hard way - about what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction. From finding the right friends to discovering the upside of failure, Everybody, Always points the way to embodying love by doing the unexpected, the intimidating, the seemingly impossible. Whether losing his shoes while skydiving solo or befriending a Ugandan witch doctor, Bob steps into life with a no-limits embrace of others that is as infectious as it is extraordinarily ordinary. Everybody, Always reveals how we can do the same.

"Goff’s voice sounds both sincere and humble when recounting the more personal anecdotes in the narrative - most notably, one about an encounter with a slow-moving rental car agent who strains Goff’s patience. His delivery is conversational, varied enough in tone and pitch to keep listeners engaged but not as intense as his charged motivational talks. Goff’s earnest rendering of memorable catchphrases - such as the recurring reference to his wife as 'Sweet Maria' - provides a human touch that accentuates the warm tones of the message." (Publishers Weekly)

I loved this book.

I think there might be something supernatural about this book. I listen and I weep. I don’t even know why I’m crying. It just feels like Jesus is giving me a much-needed pep talk.

Everybody? Always? Yes, Yes, Yes

While waiting six years for Bob Goff to release another book, part of me feared he would not be able to write another book that I could use as a “gift for anyone”, Or a great conversation starter or icebreaker in any setting. But, all my fears were in vain, because this book is just as powerful & life-changing as “Love Does”!!! I am over a half-century old (Okay, 52..but half century sounds cooler) and have never considered getting a tattoo.; and have actually forbid both of my grown children from doing so as well..:however, I am thinking an EVERYBODY ALWAYS tattoo might get some attention and help me share this incredible message with my family & friends...and of course, my enemies too!!

i didn't want this book to end.

Everything about this book is a delight. I just kept wanting to hear more stories. I suppose I should start making some of my own based upon what Bob teaches.

Love does it again !

With tears in my eyes love does it again with patience and forgiveness to teach us all not to be perfect but to be more likeJesus. Bob has a way that just hits me so good with his humor and love for this life we have been given. Read by Bob and he laughs right along with you and makes me feel like his friend. I’m gonna go get me twenty cheeseburgers at that in and out place. Thank you Bob.

Fantastically Convicting Stories

Bob Goff has incredible stories of God using willing people to do amazingly big things. Very encouraging and convicting - makes me much more open to loving the unlovable and discovering how valuable EVERYONE is. Everyone who believes in God should read this book. Everyone who does not believe in God - should read this book. It will make us all better people and the world a much better place.

Favorite this year!

This book caught me by the colorful cover and the catchy subtitle as I have felt it hard lately to love people that drive me nuts or I see do malicious or hateful things. It brought me back to a center of who I want to be. It’s also a great short listen, and can be done in a day.

Love...it really DOES

This was my second Bob Goff book and now I really want to meet him to hug his neck. The words are raw and real. I have cried multiple times and laughed even more. There is power in loving others. Especially those you don’t want to love.

This is a must read.

What other book might you compare Everybody, Always to and why?

This book paints such a practical picture of loving people the way Jesus did.

What does Bob Goff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

his inflection and heartfelt words are more believable when he reads them.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I keep going back to what he said over and over again, I want to love the way Jesus did. I also love all of his stories.

Awesome.

I couldn't stop listening to Love Does. Everybody Always was no different. So glad I heard Bob on the radio a week or so ago. Thanks for sharing your insight and helping me to understand how to Love better and more.

Love can and does!

Totally enjoyed this sequel to Love Does. My recommendation is to read Love Does first, and wait to be inspired by the simple message that "love does."

Very interesting points of view!

Even though I didn't feel this book was 5 stars (thats why I gave it 4) - this book has some interesting points of view and I am really glad I read it. For those of you who are not religious and wonder if they could still read it- i´d say yes. I mean you have to be open for the author to mention the bible, but this book did change my thinking in some ways and it certainly has some interesting stories in it.

Beautiful

Unlike most second books this is not just a repeat of Love Does, it is the same beautiful, inspirational, and fun style with so many new examples and stories of how we can practice loving our neighbour. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever listened too.
