Book Review: The Butterfly Effect: How Your Life Matters by Andy Andrews

The Butterfly Effect is written in the same tone as Andrew's The Boy Who Changed the World. Although it carries a similar message, The Butterfly Effect seems to be written to adults than for kids.

I particularly enjoyed the 'close-up' narrative of Chamberlain's charge at Gettysburg and in effect thought about what could have happen if he didn't.

The book is a good reminder to everyone of how each person has a specific purpose that, when fulfilled, will make an impact to succeeding generations.

I would recommend this book to everyone, who, at some point in their lives have felt a call but at the same time felt powerless and insignifant. Also recommended to people who work with young adults.

About the author:
Hailed by a New York Times reporter as "someone who has quietly become one of the most influential people in America," Andy Andrews is a best-selling novelist and in-demand speaker for the world's largest organizations. He has spoken at the request of four different United States presidents and at military bases worldwide. Zig Ziglar said, "Andy Andrews is the best speaker I have ever seen." Andy is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Noticer and The Traveler's Gift. He lives in Orange Beach, Alabama, with his wife, Polly, and their two sons.
