Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Butterfly Effect The Butterfly Effect was very similar to The Boy who Changed the World only an adult version. I read The Butterfly Effect first and enjoyed being able to read the same to my daughter. It took me so little time to read, but it really makes you think. I lived the historical story that demonstrated the choices a person makes can make a difference in this world. I thought the book was going to be more of a self help book to try and promote self worth, but it wasn't what I expected. Andy Andrews has me thinking once again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Short In this case, it feels to me as though my two hundred word book review might end up containing more words than the actual book I am reviewing. I was happy to review another book by Andy Andrews, happy to read more of his inspirational and uplifting world view...but I was left wanting more. This book is too short. This book is too vague. I would have appreciated more than just a passing reference to certain details of certain people’s accomplishments. I know that the many uses for sweet potatoes and peanuts has been discussed before, but further elaboration also belonged in this book. I would have appreciated a more detailed explanation of the idea of the BUTTERFLY EFFECT. Mr. Andrews mentions that bad movies and certain stories have referred to it, but which bad movies? I am intrigued by this idea, and I wanted to read more about it. It would have been interesting to know. I can always count on Mr. Andrews to write words of empowerment and blessing. It is the spirit with which he writes that is the true value when you pick up any book written by Andy Andrews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! And so true... This book is the adult version of the same story found in The Boy Who Changed The World. I think the cover is very beautiful and would attract someone who wants to buy a special book as a gift. The butterfly on the covers is shiny and gives the impression of moving a bit while placing the book under the light. The photos in this book are breath taking and illustrate properly the text that you will read. The story behind this book is very interesting and will help you to reflect on the possible consequences on whatever you do in life. Actually, there are two stories in this book. The first one is about an event that happened in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Americans will know the importance of this battle while others, like Canadians, who are not so knowledgeable about American History will discover the importance of persistence. When you are discourage and don’t see how important you are, this book is a good reminder that no matter what we are important even when things are though and we can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Personally, I thought it was inspiring and a good reminder that even the little things I do on a daily basis will have an impact. You see I am homeschooling my kids and sometimes I wonder and question myself about it. But when I read this kind of book or testimonies of how homeschool was wonderful for others, I am encourage to pursue and persevere. This book is definitively a wonderful gift to give to someone who is going through hard time or just to give to an hostess. I strongly recommend it to be inspired and motivated by it. This review was possible because I received a copy of The Butterfly Effect from Thomas Nelson.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Butterfly Effect Andy Andrews book, The Butterfly Effect, is a lovely little book. It's a hard-cover book of 100 pages, all sporting lovely graphics or photos. Don't be mislead by my saying it's 100 pages. Each page only has one or two sentences. Very easily read in 10 minutes. The back of the book says, "Every single thing you do matters. You have been created as one of a kind. You have been created in order to make a difference. You have within you the power to change the world." That got me all stoked up and I couldn't wait to read how I could change the world. In actuality, the book wasn't about me at all :-). It was about people who really did impact the world. Very little was in the book about how "I" could make a difference. It's a lovely little gift book that has a great little message. But I dare say, even if I do everything God created me to do, chances are I'll make some lives better and create a better world, but I probably won't be changing the world. I want to be an asset to this world. I want to be all God created me to be and do all he created me to do. I'm not so sure, and this book didn't convince me otherwise, that I will change the world.
