By calling on stories from the Bible as well as more current times, Mark does a great job of showing the effect that individuals can have if they only step out and seize -- no, make that pursue -- opportunity. Great things happen when people are not afraid to chase lions into pits on snowy days.
One interesting sidenote to the book is the allusion that those folks who tend to make great things happen tend to be a little, shall we say, "eccentric", in the eyes of this world. That is because those individuals are not afraid to fail, not afraid to stand out, not afraid to be different than the rest of the world. Instead of shirking from the lion, they chase it. Folks who do this tend to model it out in all parts of their lives, making you wonder if they were born with this quality.
This book, though, makes readers want to be lion chasers and, if the book inspires folks to do things a little different, to step out there in faith, to jump after opportunities ... well, that is a good thing I believe.
My only regret after reading this book is that I am going to have to change the title of a book I have been working on which was to have been "In The Grass With A Poodle On A Happy Sunshine Day." Oh well.
Gotta run! I have some lions to chase now ...
