Book Review - The Full Tank Life


Modern-day Renaissance man and star of Bravo's Thicker Than Water Ben Tankard offers powerful motivation and practical tools to empower readers to find their destiny and create an action plan to unlock it.

As a pastor, pilot, motivational speaker, bestselling Gospel/Jazz musician, and reality TV star, Tankard has a lot of experience with both success and failure. He has learned that our greatest opportunities often come from our greatest disappointments. Today, he is doing what he was born to do, and he knows it didn't happen by accident. Tankard encourages readers to examine seven key elements-Dreams, Environment, Subconscious, Time, Inspiration, Network, and You, sharing his life-tested secrets to help readers find their own way. Including fresh insights on familiar Bible passages, wisdom from Tankard's own setbacks, and laugh-out-loud stories, Tankard shows readers that they too can have a "full tank" life.


BEN TANKARD is the godfather of Gospel/Jazz music and has sold over 4 million copies of his award-winning instrumental albums. He and his family star in NBC/Bravo's Thicker Than Water--The Tankards, which was the network's highest rated freshman reality show with over 14 million viewers in its first season. A true Renaissance man, he also serves as a motivational speaker for the NBA, designs a line of men's clothing, and pilots his own plane. Together with his wife Jewel, he pastors a growing church outside of Nashville, TN.


This is a very inspiring book that will get you going toward your dreams in life. I am doing a re-set of my own life so this book couldn't have come at a better time. The fact that Mr. Tankard bases his philosophy on the Word of God totally just makes it that much better.

He gives us the tools to get our dreams off the ground and set the goals to achieve our destiny. This isn't some fluffy book - there's hard work here that has to be done - but he inspires and lays the ground work for us to do the hard work.

Of course, the great thing is we aren't doing this work alone - we are doing this with the Lord and putting Him first. I love this because so many "self-help" books are based on just that - self. I find that if I could do it by myself, I would have done it long ago but using Biblical principles and knowing God is with me, gives me the strength to go forward with my dreams. The premise of the full tank life is that our tank needs to be filled from God so we can draw from it.

This is where the early morning steps come in and not allowing roadblocks to stop us. He also reminds us it's important to have people in our life that will support us and not deter us.

This is a fantastic book. It had so much great inspiration and practical steps to achieving our destiny. It's an easy, entertaining read and I really enjoyed just reading it. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 our of 5 stars.
