5.0 out of 5 stars Better than soup!
The whole series of Chicken Soup books are the best tonic - really strange how you can find yourself feeling really sad at some of the stories yet still feel more positive at the end of reading them! Definitely a big bowl of 'There is always someone worse off than you' and that those people have managed to stay positive through some of the most unimaginable...

1.0 out of 5 stars Less Volume, Better Content
I have only read a few books of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series, but I would have to say that the authors in this latest work seemed more interested in producing a voluminous "tome" rather than offering uplifting content. One story is rendered by a woman living in an sexually unethical lifestyle. Another woman in an essay is praised for her numerous divorces. And...

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than soup!, 18 Oct 2011

Definitely a big bowl of 'There is always someone worse off than you' and that those people have managed to stay positive through some of the most unimaginable times.........perspective springs to mind!
Not a book to read in one go - just read a little when you get the time.....they help me have a different attitude to things life throws at me - can't remember the last time I felt sorry for myself!

1.0 out of 5 stars Less Volume, Better Content, 9 Mar 2013

JeremiahA "JeremiahA" (Tokuyama Shi, Yamaguchi Ken Japan) - See all my reviews
I have only read a few books of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series, but I would have to say that the authors in this latest work seemed more interested in producing a voluminous "tome" rather than offering uplifting content. One story is rendered by a woman living in an sexually unethical lifestyle. Another woman in an essay is praised for her numerous divorces. And one of the quotes, which appear at the beginning of each story, was "There is no truth. There is only perception." There is no truth!?! Walk slowly across a busy expressway and see if there is no truth when you are run over by a truck.

If the authors had carefully edited and cut the book in half, they would have done a service to the reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cicken Soup, 12 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered 2 chicken soup books, one as present, and both arrived very quickly. I already have a lot of these books and have they make lovely gifts, depending on who is on the receiving end, e.g. - Chicken Soup for the Mothers Soul for Mothers Day or Chicken Soup for the Couples Soul for friends. Everyone shold have a least one of these books - very inspiring!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Books, 14 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These books are brill. I have 2 or 3 of them and as "pick me up, put me down" books they are really handy. All different subjects covered in the range and well worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Jack, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Jacks voice, I personally buy the audio books to listen to the speakers and not what they have wrote... unfortunately there is a woman reading the stories so I took it straight out and went back to a bit of zig... Bit gutted really but I'm sure there will still be some great stories in there.
