Donald Miller's Scary Close (Thomas Nelson), a story about knocking down old walls to create a healthy mind, a strong family and a satisfying career, has reached the No. 5 position on the latest release of the New York Times best-seller list.

Miller has produced other best-sellers, like Blue Like Jazz and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years.

The book details Miller's life of failed relationships and painful drama. At 40, he decided to stop trying to impress people—which didn't get him anywhere—and to simply be himself, no matter what the cost.  

Scary Close has received some strong initial reviews like these:

"I've read all his books. This is his best yet." Lucille Zimmerman, Amazon review

"I finished the book in a little over a day. I couldn't stop reading it." —Teacher Reader, Amazon review

"This book is different, and somewhat surprisingly, probably  my favorite." —Cliff Miller, Amazon review
