The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews

I think most of us have heard of the butterfly effect,  where it's said that the beating of a butterfly's wings can stir air modules that will then stir other air modules and so on and so forth until you end up with a hurricane half way across the world.

This small book may be thin but it is packed with a powerful message.  How Your Life Matters.  The story unfolds about how one school teacher made a decision over  a century ago that still affects our lives today.

It tells the story of other people's whose one action saved billions of people and are still saving lives today.

People prioritize their actions - for instance - You might say spending time with your family is more important than with your friends, and the conversaton you have with the butcher is at the bottom of the list.  But what if you live your life with a permanent purpose? Everything matters and every move counts,  then your success will  soar.

The Butterfly Effect is one of those small gift size books, but it's printed beautifully.  The images are bright and vivid, and the message is easy to understand.  It's a quick read (It took me 15 minutes), but it does deliver a powerful message.

  1. I need to visit your blog much more often. This book has been on my wish list for a while. I hope to get it from Booksneeze after I finish the book I am reviewing for thm tight now. So many books, never enough time to read them all!!


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
