The Fourth Fisherman

This is a very inspirational book, where the author describes in parallel his own story and the incredible story of three Mexican fishermen who were lost at sea for almost 10 months before being rescued.   The author struggled with substance abuse, fame, and fortune.This books is the author's attempts to tie in the fisherman, his mental illness, his marriage, and his career into one book. It is an encouraging tale of losing one's self in order to find the truth in life.

I didn’t care about Joe. He tries to weave his story of being rich, feeling lost, finding God, coming to faith and finding his real home with the fishermen getting lost, finding God, coming to faith, and coming home. It didn’t work for me. I wanted more information about the fishermen – Did they really find God? Etc. I would give this book 2.5 out of 5 stars.
