The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews

YOUR LIFE MATTERS!!!  This is the message of the book by Andy Andrews.  What decision we make today or what action we take will have an effect on other people for generations.

I believe that what happens to us happens for a reason and some of these events happen because someone years ago made a decision that brought about our situation.  Mr. Andrews relates the story of Col Chamberlain who made a decision in the Civil War that affected our country.  Because of that decision we have a United States of America and not a divided country.

This book will cause you to stop and think about every decision you make.  It is truly a thought provoking book.  Although it is a small volume in size it contains more truths that a book with thousands of pages.  It will make a wonderful gift for family or friends that have made a difference in your life.  However, I will buy another copy for a gift.  I plan to keep my copy to read over and over especially when I feel the "What's the use" monster creep into my thoughts.  I will read this tiny book and realize that what I do does make a difference and my actions ARE important.

The book is very attractive in appearance and very well illustrated.  I will definitely recommend this book.

I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest and open review.
