This is good for those who don't like lots to read or remember, the short stories are varied in topic and some bring a tear to your eye, and some make you laugh out loud.
I like this book, its a nice read. My husband who is dyslexic also enjoyed reading this.

I have read others in this series. This one whilst travelling. Its a very pick up and put down book while at the airports.
It did make me laugh and cry. It peeks into other peoples lives and makes you think about yours. The quotes are good.
In fact I have kept this on my Kindle as will dip into it again

5.0 out of 5 stars Chicken Soup for the Travellers Soul is a winner 16 Mar 2002
By Robert G Yokoyama - Published on
This is a wonderful addition to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. One of my favorite stories is A Visit With My Parents. It is about a Peace Corps Volunteer living in the Philippines. The parents of the young woman seemed to have a greater appreciation of life. They also gained a broader perspective as well simply after experiencing how hard a Flipino family worked doing daily manual labor. They also experienced how this family lived with no electricity, plumbing, or beds which was an eye opener for them.
I was also touched by the story Road to Reconcilliation. This is a touching story about a man who lost his leg in the Vietnam War. This man had such bitterness toward his loss until he met a Vietnamese man in a sporting event for veterans. Tran Van Son lost not only his leg but also and his entire family. These two men become fast friends and eventually run the New York Marathon together.
I was touched by the story The Nicholas Effect. This is the story about a young boy who dies in a car accident. The majority of his organs were donated giving life to numerous people. I loved the story Earning My Wings. It is about a compassionate flight attendant who assists a young woman with a baby with clothes and food during a flight. Another story that sticks out in my mind is A Fair Price. This is a wonderful story about how an American college student working in Kenya building classrooms encourages an African man to tell his wife that he loves her for the first time.
Every story in this book is so touching and inspiring. I learned a lot about different places by reading. Chicken Soup for the Traveller's Soul is a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experience the World 31 Jan 2005
By Michelle Trombetta - Published on
Why does one travel? For many, the answer to this seemingly simple question can be quite one dimensional. Until I read "Chicken Soup for the Travelers Soul" my answer might have been to see new places, to try new cuisine, to get away from work or to escape my everyday existence. After many years and many miles around the globe, it took this book to truly help me understand what drives the human race to really go to the ends of the earth and why, despite the troubles of travel, we keep doing it.

This is an excellent read for both the novice and experience travelers. As a novice, it can help a person gain a greater understanding as to why it is important to see new places, experience different cultures and gain greater understanding of the world we live in. As a seasoned professional in the world of travel, this book can open your eyes and help you see the world through a whole new set of eyes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 12 Aug 2013
By Donald Meeks - Published on
I am not really sure but this book bummed me out more than it did encourage me to travel. Almost all of the stories are sad even though in the long run its a good story.
4.0 out of 5 stars Chicken Soup for the Traveler's Soul 18 April 2013
By M. Reynard - Published on
This particular book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series is one of the better ones in my opinion. But maybe that's the wanderlust in me speaking. All I know is, I enjoyed a good portion of the stories in this book for the Traveler's Soul.

The Chicken Soup for the Soul series is known for short, inspiring stories. This one is no different, although it mostly goes over travel. But not travel in the usual sense of the word. We have a trip to the moon included in this book in addition to trips out of country. I especially liked the stories about the Peace Corps, and there were a couple in this book. I was glad to see they included that as part of their travel stories. But there were a few stories I didn't enjoy. It seemed a big portion of these were about small trips made by dying people or as part of a wish program for dying children. Yes, it is technically travel, but do they have to include stories that will make you cry in every one of these books? Just a light-hearted one in full once in awhile would be nice.

Because this involves travel, it talks about meeting people all over the world and what can be shared even if you don't speak the same language. There were stories where the people spent hours together even though they didn't understand each other. They didn't have to, because the feelings were there. And that's a beautiful thing. It seems that every traveling soul shares a common theme of wanting to meet different people. Because that's part of the whole traveling experience. And these stories showed that.

The short story format is a good one. You can read a story a night or sit down with the book for one read straight through. The enjoyment doesn't lessen either way. I do feel that this is one of their shorter collections though, which surprised me, because with the whole world as a topic, you wouldn't think there'd be a lack of stories. And surprisingly, this one had quite a few stories based on religion. Now I realize this is a Christian publication, but with the world having some many religions, I was surprised that these were so dominant in the book.

As said before though, I think this is one of the better Chicken Soup books. It inspires a love of travel and a want to see new things.
