Now a New York Times Bestseller!

As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren't good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean’s office for seven days until they finally let him enroll.

Bob Goff has become something of a legend, and his friends consider him the world's best-kept secret. Those same friends have long insisted he write a book. What follows are paradigm shifts, musings, and stories from one of the world’s most delightfully engaging and winsome people. What fuels his impact? Love. But it's not the kind of love that stops at thoughts and feelings. Bob's love takes action. Bob believes Love Does.

When Love Does, life gets interesting. Each day turns into a hilarious, whimsical, meaningful chance that makes faith simple and real. Each chapter is a story that forms a book, a life. And this is one life you don't want to miss.

Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude just might inspire you to be secretly incredible, too.

¿Qué sucede cuando dejamos de preocuparnos por un mundo exigente lleno de personas problemáticas y, en cambio, simplemente empezamos a amarlas? En este nuevo libro, la continuación del fenómeno en ventas El amor hace, Bob Goff lleva a los lectores a un recorrido interesante, que transforma vidas; los transporta al secreto de una vida sin temores, limitaciones o preocupación.

Cuando El amor hace apareció por primera vez en 2012, se hablaba de Goff como “el secreto mejor guardado del mundo”. Más de 800.000 ejemplares vendidos luego, ya no es un secreto. Pero Bob nunca deja de sorprender, y en A todos, siempre, la tan esperada continuación de El amor hace, revela lo que sucede cuando dejamos de preocuparnos por un mundo desafiante y repleto de gente difícil, y en su lugar simplemente los amamos: descubrimos la clase de vida abundante, libre y sin restricciones con la que siempre hemos soñado.

Escrito en torno a la divertidísima y perspicaz historia de Bob, cada capítulo de A todos, siempre enseña una lección que Bob aprendió –en general de la manera más difícil– sobre lo que significa amar sin inhibición, inseguridad o limitación. Desde encontrar el número exacto de amigos hasta descubrir el lado positivo del fracaso, A todos, siempre señala el camino para personificar el amor haciendo lo inesperado, lo intimidante, lo aparentemente imposible. Ya sea que esté haciendo paracaidismo descalzo o haciéndose amigo de un hechicero ugandés, Bob irrumpe en la vida con un abrazo al prójimo ilimitado, tan contagioso como extraordinario. A todos, siempre revela cómo tú puedes hacer lo mismo.
