I read "The Ultimate Gift" after watching the movie, which was excellent. The book definitely wasn't as good as the movie. The book is an enjoyable easy read that specifically discusses each gift. The movie is full of substance, but it only mentions one or two of the gifts in passing...All in all, the book is a good story with a great message but the movie was much better.

This is the most feel-good, inspiring book I have ever read! It is impossible to put down once you pick it up! A beautiful story that makes you wish such a benefactor had touched your own life, but it leaves you with a wonderful perspective on life itself. Anyone who hasn't read this book is truly missing out!

This book was a quick read as it is only 155 pages long. It is a wonderful pick me up story and it really put your priorities in order. It let you know what really matters and not to sweat the small stuff if you can. It was a great book and I suggest to anyone to read it.

Received this book in the mail and before the night was over I had finished it. Very easy read but pulls you in the story. You won't want to put it down. Very inspirational story. Makes you think. Loved this book.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. A wonderful story of a young man who will inherit the ultimate gift from his great uncle by learning 12 lessons (one a month).

A quick read. Interesting in that it helps you consider what is important and valuable in life in a fictional way. I would recommend it

For the first time, I think in forever, that the movie rendition was better than the book! The movie explained more and showed the main character, Jason, persuing all of the 12 gifts.

This is a good and quick read, but I would recommend the movie for a fuller experience!

This was on ok book, but not one I would highly recommend. It has a good moral, but is very predictable reading. It is very short, so it does not take up too much of your time.

A wonderful story about life and what is important in life. The book was very true to the movie. A great read for the entire family!

This was a wonderful book. It made me look at life a bit differently. My son in high school also loved it also. The content helped him write an essay for school. However we did enjoy the movie as well even though there were quite a few differences.

This book was ok, but not what I expected. It had a good message, but not a very in-depth story. It is an extremely quick read (only approx. 123 pages)that I read in less than two hours. This book was also made into a movie, and if you've seen the movie the book is actually quite different. The movie was better with a much more interesting storyline.

I liked the book. I liked the movie even more. In the book Jason helps or meets a lot of people. In the movie the 12 steps are mostly conected by a little girl named Emily.
