According to a description on the Gaines' website, readers will "walk alongside him as he relives some of his craziest antics and the lessons learned along the way. His mentors taught him to never give up and his family showed him what it meant to always have a positive attitude despite your circumstances. Throw in a natural daredevil personality and a willingness to do (or eat!) just about anything, and you have the life and daily activity of Chip Gaines."

Although this is Chip's first solo book, he and Joanna released The Magnolia Story last year. The book recalls how they met in Waco all those years ago and their path to HGTV stardom.
