Product Description

Amazon Review

It's like home-made chicken soup that warms the chill and heals the ill. This collection of 101 stories is based on the belief that true testimonies of goodness and loving transformations can nourish us to the bone and heal the cynicism in our hearts. Indeed, nearly every story seeps in deeply. It's hard not to shed a tear of gratitude, feeling thrilled to have been touched and soothed so easily. Some of the authors are famous, such as Dan Millman, who writes an exquisite vignette on "Courage," and Gloria Steinem, who writes of "The Royal Knights of Harlem." Many, however, have a short, simple story to tell about an event, a person, an everyday miracle that exemplifies the best of the human spirit.

Two of America's best-loved inspirational speakers team up to share recipes for Spiritual healing--stories that represent the prime ingredients of what is possible, that warm the heart, delight the spirit, and confirm our right to be more fully human.


"sure to restore you faith in the human race and inspire you to improve your life. Easy to dip in and out of, it is full o bite-sized wisdom on everything from relationships and parenting to learning to love yourself and overcoming obstacles. It will make you laugh, cry and marvel at the power of the human spirit" (Spirit and Destiny)

2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Sentimental (And That's Being Nice) 19 Feb 1997
By A Customer
Perhaps, I am too cynical. Perhaps, I have lost my innocence. But once again, I picked up a book, I thought might reach deeper, might have meaning . . . but alas, I found a book that made happiness and meaningfulness seem easy, too easy. I didn't buy it. This book tries so hard to please that it smacks of a cheesy attempt to make money on a public truly searching for meaning. Don't get me wrong, there are some wonderful stories in here but too often they are surrounded by those quick anecdotes about someone who would have comitted suicide if a stranger hadn't said I love you to them on the bus and now their life is wonderful. Or Big Ed who after one seminar finally learned to love his wife and ended-up executive vice-president. To me, this book makes me wonder why I have such a difficult time changing my life and finding true happiness. It seems so easy to these people. If you lower your expectations, feel free to read this book, you'll find a few gems. If you want short stories filled with more depth try Anthony de Mello's One Minute Nonsense or Song of the Bird. And if you are truly looking for books that will get you thinking about the meaning of it all go try John Irving's Prayer for Owen Meany or David James Duncan's River Why or Daniel Quinn's Ishmael. I found this book to be less like Chicken Soup and more like lifesavers. They sound good and taste good, but if you are really hungry they do not come close to filling you up.

I am an 18 year old female who has gone through many losses, such as the loss of my father and I found this book (as well as all the other Soup for the Soul books) to be a help in more than one way. I was honestly astounded at how much of a difference it made by reading a few stories....It really makes you think twice about not only who you are........but who you want to be...........

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Refreshing 20 Feb 1997
By A Customer
A truly heartwarming book that will uplift and encourage even the most hardened heart. It is a refreshing book that will help make your day and other peoples day better just because you picked it up and read a few pages, but beware you need to take it in small doses because it is so emotionally power packed. When you are done reading this book you will know for sure that ANY Dream you have really can come true. This is a book of hope, courage, dreams and inspiration which will motivate you and leave you a changed person. Absolutely one of the Ten Best Books I have ever read and I've read alot. -Polly A. Coen-
