He begins with Edward Lorenz's hypothesis that the flapping wings of one butterfly begin motion that could eventually start a hurricane and moves on to share stories of seemingly small or insignificant acts that had profound life changing effects on the world.
I read through this short gift book quickly, but have spent much time pondering the simple truths revealed within its few words. This book will bring hope and encouragement to many. I could sense the voice of our loving God speaking through the pages, reminding us that He indeed created us with a plan and a purpose. My one complaint is that I wanted more. If Andy chooses to expand on this in a full length book I would surely be anxious to read it. I suggest that you keep an extra copy of The Butterfly Effect to pass on to friends and family. You might just start a chain reaction of life altering proportion.

I recently received the new book, The Butterfly Effect, by Andy Andrews. My First Impression was pleasant surprise. The book is a quick read, under 10 minutes in fact. It is written in large letterhead type with easy to understand terminology. It is the story of a number of people who changed the world, and how their lives were impacted by others. It is a story of the effect our every decision and action has on everyone around us. It is a call to rise to action...
"Every single thing you do matters. You have been created as one of a kind. You have been created in order to make a difference. You have within you the power to change the world." (pp.105)
Who this book is good for: This book is fantastic if you want an inspiration. It is a great gift book to anyone, especially a young adult.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book. Sit down and read the inspiration that others left for us. And take a moment to consider that the person you are will touch others, even if it doesn't feel like it.

This book is a quick and easy way to be inspired to take risks and make smart decisions with your life. It can make anyone feel important and connected to the world in a way they never thought possible before. Andy Andrews has a very subtle way of changing how his readers think and making them feel bigger than life.
I recommend The Butterfly Effect as a quick pick-me-up when you're exploring your purpose in life or as a gift for a young or old adult that may be questioning their place in the world. The Butterfly Effect clearly shows that whether you are a butterfly flapping its wings or an individual coaching a child, your actions will leave a legacy and make an impact on others.
