CAPTIAL GAINS- Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff by Chip Gaines is a good book BUT it really is a guy book. His story about the journey to his success in business and family are tales I believe many men can relate to.

As I read the book I kept thinking of all the married men I knew who could have, benefitied from this book years ago. I also developed a new respect for his wife Jo. It is rare that what you see on television reflects reality but apparently that is the beauty of their success- the Gaines family are as you see them.

What is important to understand in this 184 page book is that Chip is a man of faith. Faith in God is the underspoken theme within this book that begins with a desire to improve his working relatioship with his Spanish speaking business associates.

Even though I think this book is for the guys women can glean a lot from the positive influence Joanna had on Chip’s life even before they were married. She is a very intelligent woman and the two of them make a great team.

For me this book was not about the stupid stuff Chip did but how he allowed his mistakes to become lessons in what not to do. We all make mistakes, very few people would right a great book about it.   ---written by Marsha L F Randolph
