About the Book
Back cover blurb
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.
Why I Choose this Book
Years ago one of our friends gave this book to my dad for his birthday. He enjoyed it so much that he bought multiple copies to give away. I’ve read this book several times over the years and have enjoyed it each time.
What I Thought about the Book
Growing up our parents taught us that what we do matters and that even small decisions can affect others in huge ways. Our lives matter and what we do today not only makes a difference here and now, but can also start a chain reaction and who knows what the outcome will be? This book delves into that and the concept that “little” things can end up changing the world.
The book is absolutely beautiful. It’s not the traditionally illustrated book, but each page has a different background and there are different fonts, sizes of letters even a few different colors of letters. It reminds me of a scrap book with how it’s put together.
There’s not a lot of writing on each page, rather the words are used skillfully and coupled with the illustrations create a piece of artwork.
There is a place in the book where every time I read it I get shivers. It’s inspiring and helps me remember that my life really does matter and I need to treat each moment with care.
I am giving The Butterfly Effect Five Stars and recommend it to anyone.
