Book Review: Crazy Busy

Crazy BusyCrazy busy. Who can’t relate to those two words? When my friends ask me how I’m doing, I often reply with, “busy.” When they ask how my week has been, I say, “busy!” And I get the same reply from plenty of them.

To be honest, I like being busy. Jobs, activities, and goals that keep me on the go energize me. But there are those moments (days … weeks … months) that crazy busy becomes overwhelming and stressful.

This book and Just Do Something, both written by Kevin DeYoung, received rave reviews from a few of my Goodread’s friends, so when I noticed Crazy Busy available for Kindle for 99 cents, I decided to give it a try.

DeYoung made a lot of good observations and comments about our busy lifestyles. He talked about the importance of being still before our God, the danger of assuming a god-complex by feeling like we need to “do it all because God is depending on us, and the fallacy of feeling wronged when our busy schedules make life “hard.”

Overall, I liked the content but wasn’t overly inspired by this book. On the other hand, I recommended it to a few of my friends because I thought they would enjoy and be encouraged by it. So, if being busy isn’t something that bothers you, this book might read a little dry. If being busy stresses you out, you’ll probably like this book a lot (if you can find time to read it)!
