    When Times Are Hard, This Will Provide That Extra Boost

    I can't even begin to do the Chicken Soup For The Soul series justice by trying to write a simple review for any of the books in the series. I have read so many of these books that we'd be here all day for me just to give you the names of the ones that I have read. Furthermore, I have given countless others away as gifts to family and friends. All I can say is that each book is everything that I expected and more. I would definitely recommend any one of the books in this series for you and/or someone that you love.

    For anyone who feels bound by their anger, guilt, hurt or pain, I also recommend "When God Stopped Keeping Score." I thought that "When God Stopped Keeping Score" was just about overcoming forgiveness, I soon learned, it was about so much more than that. The author actually pulls back the curtain to his own life, to offer an intimate look at the true power of forgiveness and reveals the emotional price that you must be willing to pay to live without it.

    All of this, while still offering up interesting and often tear worthy stories that showed you just how you should deal with friends, family and more importantly, yourself when things do go wrong. The author more importantly reveals the key to keeping these relationships strong even in the face of adversity.

    Having read it, I feel like a better person. Maybe that's because this book spoke to me and not down to me. I have read a lot of books that was written like I didn't know anything. What the author of "When God Stopped Keeping Score" does is talk to you like a friend. I needed that. You will understand why when you read it for yourself. It is on sale here on BN.com.

    The Best and Most Beneficial Chicken Soup Book Ever!

    Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People has a story for every difficult situation facing our society today. From job and home losses to work and health dilemmas, stories of stamina, faith and hope fill the covers of this collection. Every story in the book is a testament to strong will and faith. I would highly recommend this collection for anyone needing a spiritual "pick me up." This is the perfect book for those who feel they're experiencing the worst day of their life. This collection will help those people to trudge ahead and find brighter tomorrows!

    Of the stories, my personal favorite is "Humor + Faith = Recovery" by Jill Eisnaugle. Anyone who can overcome health issues, the death of a family member, and losses from Hurricane Ike, while still maintaining a strong sense of humor and basis of faith, is one tough cookie! I hope everyone takes the time to buy this book, just to read her story, if nothing else. I recommend the entire book, however. It's a classic to be treasured for years to come!

    Timely Book With A Timely Message!

    I simply love the Chicken Soup series of books. They are worth every moment spent reading each page. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score," another great book, which takes an eye opening look at forgiveness. Given the chance, it will change your life. It did that for me.
