The Butterfly Effect

Title: The Butterfly Effect
Author: Andy Andrews

Blurb from Goodreads:

The decisions you make and the way you treat others have more impact than you may ever realize.
Speaker and New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews shares a compelling and powerful story about a decision one man made over a hundred years ago, and the ripple effect it's had on us individually, and nationwide, today. It's a story that will inspire courage and wisdom in the decisions we make, as well as affect the way we treat others through our lifetime. Andrews speaks over 100 times a year, and The Butterfly Effect is his #1 most requested story. 
Also included with the purchase of the book is a link to view a 9-minute message of Andrews telling The Butterfly Effect story to a live audience.

My take:

How could I not review this book? lol This is a very short book that will take only minutes to read, but will stay in your heart and mind for a while. The concept is simple and familiar, but it is one we too often ignore. We don't live in a bubble. Our actions spread out like ripples on a pond - touching people across great distances and time. Knowing that should give us a greater sense of purpose and inspire us to make our choices more carefully. The little stories amaze and inspire. This makes a great gift as well. I want to thank Thomas Nelson for providing my electronic review copy.

  3. Andrea ~ Thank you so much. You are a blessing - and may God take care of you and yours. {Hugs}

    K.M. Weiland ~ It is always a pleasure to have you visit my blog. I have to admit that I thought it was just a sci-fi kind of thing, but the book focuses more on how people can have a profound influence on those around them. I find that both encouraging and challenging. :o)
