"We Be Big" - Rick & Bubba's Story

Book Description from Booksneeze:

"The story of two unlikely radio hosts and what happened when they followed their faith and instincts.
Rick & Bubba are the most unlikely broadcast stars imaginable, yet hundreds of thousands of loyal listeners start their day with them every morning. Beyond that, they break the biggest no-no rule for secular radio as they openly share their faith in Christ and their common-sense way of looking at the world. Now, in We Be Big: The Mostly True Story of How We Became Rick & Bubba, readers learn how this unlikely pairing came about. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, this is also the highly personal story of two men who—like most of us—resisted stepping through the doors God opened for them, opting for the easier path when tested. When they finally decided to follow their instincts and their faith, though, not only did they became amazingly successful, but also a truly powerful platform became theirs."
My Thoughts:
Growing up in the south (North Alabama, actually), I know who Rick & Bubba are.  They come up in many conversations, and everyone loves them.  I requested this book from Booksneeze because I thought I would enjoy getting to "know" them a little better.  
"We Be Big" definitely helps you see into Rick & Bubba's world of radio and faith.  I enjoyed reading more about them and their "mostly" true story.  I did find the book a bit hard to read, though I am used to reading fiction or self-help type books and this is neither.  If you have no idea who Rick and Bubba are, then you most likely wouldn't really enjoy this book, but if you know who they are or have heard them on the radio, then you may enjoy reading a little more about their adventure.  There is plenty of humor, some heartbreak and a lot of stories in the book to help keep you entertained.
