    Great inspiration book

    This book is a hard to find edition, and I am very proud to receive it to review from FSB Media.

    A great gift book, or just a coffee table book to pick up and read a little here and there that has some very interesting stories by different authors. Each has a story to tell and all will life your spirt, some will make you cry alone with the author and others will give you a good laugh that we all need this time in our lives that a lot of people are out of work, some are homeless and it seems that everytime we turn on the TV, there has been a murder or a robbery so we really need something to get our minds off the trouble. This book will do just that and I am sure you will enjoy it yourself, so if you are buying one for a gift make sure to get one for yourself as you will not want to let it go
