    REVIEW 500 one fine summer day, young mark monday aged 4 or 5 was tooling around the neighborhood on his Big Wheel he was a happy lad and liked to make others around him feel happy too this outlook soon saw its first challenge when he wheeled up to his friend Tommy who looked miserable and had clearly been crying What s the matter, Tommy Dad s going away young mark monday was a military brat and so was Tommy, so mark knew exactly how he felt he had felt the same way, many times but he hated seeing his friend Tommy looking so upset he thought for a moment, and as his thoughts tended to do, they moved towards his favorite shows, Sesame Street and Electric Company what happened when kids had problems on those shows, problems that they didn t know how to solve why, they sang about them and then the problems just didn t seem so big any and so young mark sang Don t be sa ad, Tommy Just be gla ad, Tommy The sun is bright,Let your heart take mark was silenced when Tommy suddenly picked up a rock and smashed it right into his face then Tommy ran off mark sat there stunned then slowly rode his Big Wheel home, crying and bleeding from that day on, he knew the dangers of trying to turn a frown upside down.

    The best part about trashing this stupid book is that there is no such thing as a soul and if you disagree with me I suggest that you take flying lessons don t bother with the bit about landings and fly a plane into your computer right into my review of this book That ll learn me The Goodreads blurb for this book describes the authors as, Two of America s best loved inspirational speakers Other famous inspirational speakers Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Dale Carnegie, Jim Jones, Tony Robbins, Richard Simmons, and Reverend Lovejoy from the Simpsons, to name only a few Not very good company to keep Let s just consider that word for a moment Inspire to influence, move, or guide by divine or supernatural Do you really want to be guided or influenced by these two hucksters Life doesn t come with instructions so why do so many people look for them in this sort of childish pabulum There are no easy answers You just have to take bits and pieces of the wisdom handed down to us through the centuries and cobble some meaning together on your own I have news for you none of this wisdom is to be found in the self help aisle at Barnes and Nobles, and there is certainly none to be found in this collection of fortune cookie aphorisms Instead of wasting your time with this garbage, read something that will give you some true understanding of human existence I ll bet that most people who rated this five stars don t believe in evolution Evolution is one of the most illuminating ideas in all of human history, but these people would rather ignore science and take refuge in religion, superstition, and this sort of uplifting silliness Stephen J Gold was asked if he had learned anything or if his thinking was altered because he had been diagnosed with cancer He told the interviewer that his intellectual foundation would have been pretty weak if something as minor as his own illness could have rocked him off of it If this sort of trash is your intellectual foundation, you are making a house of greeting cards Before you let me have it because I think this book is trash look at your own ratings I m sure that there are books that you hate that other people treasure I don t care if you don t like a book I may think is excellent The whole idea of this site is for readers to voice their opinions I give most books 5 stars so if you re looking for something positive read a review of a book I loved.

    One of those books which forces one to think positive even if one is 100% doomed to failure, extinction, defeat, or death

    About as spiritually enriching as the inspirational quotes you find on packets of instant oatmeal If Nicholas Sparks were a motivational speaker, he would have churned out these tepid pieces of crap while bingewatching Touched by an Angel.

    This book was given out at work Very readable and unoriginal I m far too cynical to enjoy and find deep meaning in stories like these.

    I loved this collection of short stories They are inspirational, motivational, and beautifully written Many made me cry, which is also very cathartic.The real magic behind the Chicken Soup Series is knowing the effort that Jack Canfield put into the promotion of this book before it became popular After being turned down 144 times, he persisted He is a model of passionately pursuing your dreams until they are realized.I also had the chance to meet Jack Canfield at the premiere of the Keeper of the Keys, a documentary movie that I am featured in along with Jack Canfield, John Gray and Marci Shimoff Jack was also kind enough to read and endorse my book, The Upside of Down Times Discovering the Power of Gratitude which can be found here

    I am done with self help mumbo jumbo Don t tell me another story about this person who achieve this without giving me names, dates and factual evidence that is referenced

    Once started, couldnt put it down A real heart warmer, lifted my spirits no end, even when I didnt realise it needed lifting TBH, it restored my faith in mankind, esp after watching the news all the time This would also make a great gift for a reader or any genre, if they dont like it, then there must be something wrong with them Many a time i found myself laughing out loud, crying to myself or just stopping to think to myself at the though provoking story I had just read Will definately read again some day

    Everyone finds his own interpretation of the information read here If you seek for answers or opinions you will find them rather different I liked the book a lot and will turn back to it many times in the future.

    This is a really odd book Although I really liked a few of the stories, many of them seemed engineered to make the reader dab at the eyes with a tissue The act of giving out hugs to randomly chosen strangers has been elevated nearly to the status of a religion And as warmly as I feel toward some of my friends here on Goodreads, I m just not a very spontaneous hugger Sigh
