It began with a free sandwich, a simple camera, and twenty “I can do better than you” shots.

Within months, the guys went from shooting backyard trick shots to starring in GMC truck commercials and standing on an L.A. Red Carpet.

I was a little reluctant reading a book about basketball, which is not my interest, but when I read about it's mission to help people achieve their Go Big dream, I was intrigued and ordered my complimentary copy from Tyndale House Publishers. Immediately, I was drawn to the book because of the simplicity of the idea: Go Big. I gleaned so much from the principles of going even bigger each time the Dude Perfect team posted a new You tube video. I was impressed by Cotton's easy to follow style of writing and relating to his entire audience of readers. He even mentioned those who cook, which is me! I'm a passionate cook and follower of Christ and I absolutely agree and follow his last principle of giving back. I want to give back to my community and share Christ with those around me also. It's all because of Christ's great love for me and what He's done. I give this book a double thumbs up and found it inspiring and motivational in my dream I am pursuing. I hope to take these principles and my dream to the next level. Thank you Cory, for taking the time to write and thank you Dude Perfect team for sharing your passion in a unique Christ -like way. It goes to show that we can use all of our God-given talents and abilities to glorify Christ, from freezer cooking to basketball trick shots.
