This author does a wonderful job of not only telling his story but trying to give his fellow man an in site as to what to do when your world, your life and your faith is shaken and it feels like it is crumbling around you. How can you rebuild your life when you loose everything that you thought was important to you? Well this is a good start. If you get nothing more from this book than words then you need to read it again. JT opens his heart and mind to the world and you can take from it what you will but if you take the time to read this book then be sure you take some bit of wisdom with you when you read the last word.

Great and powerful read and I'm glad I read it.

A wonderful read, and just my style: short, sweet, and to the point. 4.5 out of five stars.
JT's tips for survival are very common sense, especially given his Jobesque predicaments. Using what I view as a budhist philosophy (many mentions of Karma) he manages to stay adrift time, after time, after time. He shows us that with perserverence, patience, and a little charisma we all possess the ability to rise up from the ashes of life. He poses the question that rather than 'fixing' what is wrong, why not start all over and create something even better?
Well done my friend, well done indeed!

JT has a knack for story telling and his book "How to Survive When the Bottom Drops Out" does not disappoint! I thought this book was very well written, easy to read and keeps the reader fully entertained. He has learned through his trials to view his beer mug as half full rather than half empty and gives great ideas on how we can too! If you are currently in your own hole with no bottom, you will no doubt come away with at least a glimmer of hope for the next chapter in your life after reading JT's book!

JT Sather’s “How to Survive When the Bottom Drops Out” could very well be called “How to Not Be A F’up” I think I have problems in life. I’m sure you think you do too. But this JT… my problems take off their hat and bow down at his problem’s feet. Wow.
Despite from spending more than a few years in hell, JT certainly hasn’t lost his sense of humor. Creeping out of my cringes and screams of horror, I found myself on many more than a handful of occasions laughing hysterically.
Through the details of his trouble filled life, Mr. Sather has reached through the darkness and found some shining gems of advice to help novices like us avoid the same disasters he fumbled his way into.
What do you need to do when things begin to turn sour?
“It was time to step out of the painting and analyze the brush strokes.”
How do you grab the reins of life and wrestle it into the direction you want it to go?
“It boils down to what you make of ‘the chance or chances you get’. More importantly what are you willing to put into it? You don’t get the good stuff in life by sitting on you’re a** and hoping it will just happen on its own.”
If things fall apart, how do you know what to take with you when you fly out of your escape hatch?
“Condense these items into a two foot cube. It’s time to travel light my friend. If it doesn’t fit in the box, then throw the rest of that crap away. You can’t move forward if you won’t let go of the past.”
But I really want to hang on to my Star Wars action figures. They mean so much to me.
“Remember, one man’s junk is just going to end up another man’s junk.”
Let it go man. I found myself uncluttering so much unnecessary crap from my space reading this book. If nothing else, it helped me be able to see the top of my desk again.
Written with a wry sense of sarcasm and deep caring, “How to Survive When Thee Bottom Drops Out” is a rare, honest look at picking yourself up every time the world beats you down. Both frightening and inspiring, it is an enjoyable read with a lot of great things to teach.

I am honored to say that I was able to read this book in its beginning stages. This book is not only the story of a courageous mans life, but a self-help guide for what to do and how to do it when you're in a stink. The words that the author wrote are gritty yet behind them you find what you need, determination, motivation, and balls.
