This book is an easy read with its many short stories. It works for a busy mom who may only be able to read a few pages at a sitting. The message in the stories always leave me feeling good!

it is all too simple, just one more commercial product. Do not go there! God and Spirituality should not be simplified till that extend.

Positively Inspirational Sept. 7 2011
By C. Martin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Get this book if you're looking for some pick-me-up, inspirational stories. The book is divided up into ten chapters, with each chapter consisting of about ten short, inspirational stories. The ten chapters (categories) are:

-Words that Changed My Life -Overcoming Adversity
-Health Challenges -Attitude Adjustments
-Every Day Is Special -Silver Linings
-Role Models -Moving Forward
-Counting Your Blessings -Gratitude

As you can see, there's a pretty broad range of topics, and as I mentioned before, the stories are short, with most being around 4 or so pages each. I liked this, because I have kind of a hectic schedule most days, and don't get much time to sit around reading inspirational books. However with this book, you can read a couple of the stories in just a few minutes, and then take away some great messages to think about for the rest of the day. So if you're looking for a few quick words of inspiration now and then, I highly recommend checking this one out.

Comment from Deborah Norville Oct. 10 2010
By Knit Girl - Published on
Format: Paperback
(I know, it's a funny "Amazon" name - 'Knit Girl' )Far be in from me to submit a "review" for a book for which I have contributed the foreward, but I wanted to share a note I received via email from a lady who is exactly the reason a book like "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive" was created. I wont reveal her name, but here is her message in its entirety.

Dear Deborah,
I woke up this morning and could not get past my sadness. I cried all morning and then I remembered seeing you on GMA on Friday with the new book Think Positive. My life has been beyond overwhelming these days with a health issue with my Dad. I find myself turning to all the negative things in my life rather than reveling in all the reasons I have to be grateful. I hae (sic) read a few stories and I am hoping I can find the positive in my life everyday. I will try to turn to this book often. When the book needs me or when I need the book.

I have followed you over the years from one of the first times you filled in on the Today show. I loved the foreword in the book and I am hoping to take these words and "Change my thoughts so I can change the world" At least turn my own ship into a more positive direction. Thank you. I am hoping this will be the turning point in my life.

My best,


How great that in the middle of her turmoil, this lady found some words of hope, wisdom, and a sense that she's not alone in her struggle. None of us are -- though at times, we may all feel quite alone. And indeed BE alone. But the short vignettes in Think Positive are meant to put you in a ever so slightly brighter mindset -- which then makes it easier to conjure up those positive thoughts, great ideas, superb strategies to get us through our troubles. We all have troubles -- but we all have blessings too. This book aims to help you remember THOSE. I hope it helps you -- and I hope that you let me hear from you too! You can email me here: [...] (copy and paste into your browser.)

Here's to brighter days! Deborah

Great book for hard time!! Oct. 12 2010
By Melanie Hardy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book comes at a much needed time. When our economy is in bad shape, natural disasters are everywhere, and the negative outweighs the positive every time we turn on the television, computer, or radio.

These stories truly show people who have been given "lemons" and made "lemonade". The book has blessed me, and I have given several as gifts, which have in turn blessed friends and family.

These stories are gems of faith, and can help anyone feel better when going through a rough time.

The writers are gifted, and share much needed uplifting stories. This book is a must read!!

Inspirational Stories To Warm the Heart and Soul April 17 2014
By Donna Hill - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Another great Chicken Soup book. I saw a lot of Zen thinking in this book. It showed me, once again, that acceptance of a situation, concentration on the present moment, and enjoyment of the good, positive aspects of all circumstances helps us to rise above difficulties. Some of the authors have illnesses or disabilities which would depress many people. Would you see the positive side of Alzheimer's Disease? Could you still be happy if you had macular degeneration and were slowly going blind? Could you have Asperger Syndrome and still want to travel the world knowing that you were directionally-challenged? I don't think I've ever made it through a Chicken Soup book without crying. And this book was no exception. It was so moving. I am a person who tries to look for the silver lining, but I often fall short, and this book has helped me to look for the beauty in all circumstances.

No to Nay-sayers and Hooray to Yay-sayers! Oct. 7 2010
By Theresa J. Elders - Published on
Format: Paperback
We've been drowning in doom and gloom long enough. Now that Thanksgiving nears, it's time to reframe our attitudes. Since I received my contributor's copy, this latest Chicken Soup book helps me start each morning looking on the bright side. Deborah Norville quotes Norman Vincent Peale in her introduction, "Change your thoughts and you change your world." I believe it.
My story, "From Nuisance to Blessing" relates how I started to look at my late husband's scruffy mutt with new eyes when I realized that I wasn't the only one who missed Ken. Taking twenty minutes a day, Natty and I now have a little quality time together strolling the Loop...and I've lost fifteen pounds since the end of March. That's not easy at my age, and I have this dog to thank for it. Jeannie Lancaster's tale is a treasure. You can't possibly read "Dancing in the Rain" and remain surly! And for a good giggle, catch Annmarie B. Tait's treasure, "Living in Barbie's Dream House."
