Each year I look for the perfect gift to give my mother,and each year she tells me my love is enough.My most special gifts are the stories of the lives we live along with our family and friends. Jack Canfield and Mark Hansen have captured feelings and pieces of my own life.What more could a mother want than sharing lifes moments with her child,knowing they will live forever in a book. I am sure whoever reads this book, or other books written by Canfield and Hansen will have to agree. There are stories in each book that hit very close to home or you feel someone has been looking inside your heart. Truly a book that can be read again and again and bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. I feel sure A 3rd Serving of Chicken Soup for the Soul will be a welcomed gift, that is if I ever get it wrapped! Paulette Burk
All of the books in the "Chicken Soup For The Soul" series are incredible. They are unlike any other book you may read. The true stories of people who have over come great odds, or have shown true courage and strength, will inspire you to improve your own life. The stories are short and easy to read. They are all touching, and will stir your emotions. They make an excellent gift to someone you love (grandparents especially!). Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield also do speaking tours, and I would highly recommend going to see them if you get the opportunity. These books WILL change the way you look at the world, and give you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside at the same time.

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 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!
