I loved this book! You may know Chip and Joanna Gains from episodes of the fixer-upper (which I am addicted to!). They are a great, loveable couple who clearly work hard and possess a lot of talent between them, which complements each other so well.
This confirms that the couple we see on screen is the same as reality. This is a straightforward book to read. You feel like you want to be friends with them and be involved with their lives and family.
Reading through this feels like curling up with a snuggling, cosy blanket and a good hot chocolate. It’s well written in a conversational tone, making it like being told a story by friends. This is sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but consistently remarkable, genuine and inspiring.
This book expands on the people you see in Fixer Uppers. It confirms that what you get on tv is a genuine glimpse of them as people and not a front. They come over as caring and principled and make you feel you'd be likely to enjoy spending time in their company. Some debate elsewhere as to their views on wider issues, but not for me to comment on or judge here.
This is the story of two remarkable people who, together, created an amazing business which has brought prosperity to other companies, improved the houses and increased the property equity of many Waco home owners, provides employment for many and much, much more. Their steadfast, unrelenting love and support for each other and their faith seems to be the catalyst for thriving in situations which would have me running for cover! I "met" them via ITVbe and it has been lovely reading how they got to where they are now. Beautiful family but, oh, it takes a strong woman to keep up with Chip Carter Gaines. I am stunned by Joanna!
I have been watching Fixer Upper on TV and have become quite addicted. I absolutely Iove the chemistry between them, they are so genuine. The book was a pleasure to read and reaffirmed what a lovely couple and great team they are. I would highly recommend this sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes unbelievable story of their lives so far. Thank you Chip and Joanna for giving us a glimpse into your amazing life.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about Chip & Joanna'a story from their first meeting through to their very successful career, and I can say without a doubt that they are two of the most endearing people I have read about in a very long time. It's very refreshing to read without anything having to bleeped out, well done Chip & Joanna
This book was inspirational! It is written in a style so true to this lovely couple. Success didn't drop in their laps, they worked very hard to achieve it. I believe if they lost it all tomorrow, because they have each other, they would move on and excel at Plan B.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Chip and Jo’s tv show. It has the same feeling. I found it inspiring, but also calming - like the show. I know I will return to read this again one day! And maybe a second book detailing the next chapter in their lives ... ?
This is not an issue with the content but the actual quality of the book itself. The quality of the card cover and the pages are really poor. It is as if it is a sample copy or a very poor copy. Given it cost £8, i can't quite believe it. I have no doubt I will enjoy the content but as a book, I would have wanted to keep, I would be surprised it will make one reading before it falls apart.
Contents great, but disappointed with purchase from Thrift store, took over a month for it to arrive and book without sleeve - grey outer and not quite in the condition I expected, my fault I should have bought new!
