The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews (Review)



Book Description


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 Review:
This is a short quick motivational book. It is hardcover and would make a good gift. We have heard the message before but it is easy to forget. It starts off explaining the butterfly effect which was proposed by Edward Lorenz. The main theme is that everything we say and do matters and can affect others. It can have a lasting effect we never know about. I liked the layout of the book with the words not being crowded on a page and the pretty pictures. There is no mention of God or bible verses in it so it is a general market book. I think it is effective. It does bring to mind the bible verse Proverbs 18:21. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Recommended.
