I received a complimentary copy of The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews to review. The Butterfly Effect is a short, inspirational story based on a very important lesson the author learned from his mentor; everything we do has meaning. Andy Andrews drives this point home by sharing a series of life stories that connect and find meaning within each other. One person can do something seemingly small, but end up indirectly affecting millions.
I don't usually like reading small, gift type books. I usually feel like they are something people give to other people who in return put them on the bookshelf and never read them. This book is compact, but has a message and story that is worth reading. I found the stories the author uses to illustrate his point very interesting. The artwork and layout of the book were also very appealing to me. It really made me think about how my life can have meaning everyday.
