Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Bestselling author Andrews (The Traveler's Gift) takes a cue from the success of his previous book, built around time travel, motivational ideas and historical figures, and continues in the same vein. When Mark and Dorry Chandler find an odd bronze object in a ditch in their Denver backyard, they begin to investigate its origin. Andrews develops the theme of the importance of making good choices, using the motif of four inscribed ancient bronze objects that together form a cup. Each fragment symbolizes choices that its historic owner made, influenced by the object. Using flashbacks, Andrews offers numerous short vignettes of the different historical figures who possessed each of the fragments, including Oskar Schindler, Alfred Vanderbilt, John Adams and George Washington Carver among others. The flashbacks are simply presented, and they often have the feel of fictional minibiographies for young readers rather than meaty adult fare. There's nothing particularly compelling about the storytelling—the mechanics of fiction are creaky in places—but that's not the point. Rather, the book stands on the positive message that one person by his or her decisions can change the world. As he did in The Traveler's Gift, Andrews should appeal to those readers looking for an uncomplicated motivational read with a dollop of history thrown in for good measure.

I've always read two types of books. One type is for self improvement. I'm not always riveted to the pages, but usually gleen some sort of information that helps me live a richer, more productive and fulfilling life. The other type is the novel. When I go on vacation I love to lie in a hammock or on the beach and escape with a great story. THE LOST CHOICE is a rare read in that it combines the two into one awesome story. In this incredible tale of mystery and revelation Andy Andrews once again weaves true experiences in the lives of men and women who have contributed to the fabric of our society with a fictionalized story of a lost artifact and the group of friends who seek its meaning. The story left me hopeful and energized. One of the great discoveries within the pages of THE LOST CHOICE is that we all make a difference! Each of our individual souls contain the same great intrinsic value and worth of those historical figures who have made a positive difference throughout the ages. Read THE LOST CHOICE. It's Andy Andrews' finest offering yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Choice July 9 2004
By Susan
Format:Hardcover
People are always recommending this book or that. But your BEST choice is The Lost Choice. It is really capitivating, entertaining and inspiring. (Don't be fooled, some so-called "inspirational" books are dry and sleep aids. Here you are inspired WHILE being entertained.) I bought it on one afternoon and finished it at 7 am the next morning. I could not put it down, even while taking care of 3 children! By reading this book you will remember your significance in this world, even when you are apt to forget. This book was a much needed boost in my life. Now, I am telling everyone about it - and giving them away as gifts. I want all my friends and family to be blessed by the message in this book, too. Andy Andrews does a fantastic job of story telling that catapults you into different lives and times of the characters so that you feel as though YOU are living out the story! You will read faster and faster, anxiously looking for the next big adventure. Do yourself and the ones you love a big favor and get this book today - and read it before anything else! Thanks, Andy, for ANOTHER life changing experience.

If you can imagine, the time is 3:30 AM, like in the morning, and I am reading The Lost Choice. I found the book compelling and I was unable to put it down. I particularly like not only what Andy Andrews had to write about, I liked the way he wrote it. It was extremely interesting, held my attention and conveyed a most worthwhile message. If you read his first book, The Traveler's Gift, you can understand that something you do can ultimately change the world. The Lost Choice takes it a step further. If you have a belief and then constantly ask yourself "If I truly believed what I think I believe, what would I say or do to be compliant with that belief?" If you do this and you constantly say and do things that serve a purpose, you CAN ultimately change the world. "By your hand, the world will be changed!" While this was not one of the ancient scripts described in the book, it certainly applies to Andy Andrews. By his hand, lives could be changed and should that happen, the world will be changed. How many people can say that about that which they do and say? My life has been changed by The Traveler's Gift and what I now say and do is being changed by The Lost Choice. Words would simply do an injustice as to how important I believe this book to be. If you were permitted to read only one more book in your life, it should be this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Andrews Book is a Life Changing Experience June 25 2004
Format:Hardcover
I felt like an magical force lead me across the floor of the local bookstore and right to this book. I had read The Travelers Gift, which is awesome, so I figured Andy Andrews new book was likely a must read. A picked it up, read some of the quotes and a voice in my head said "buy it." I'm glad I did. While anytime is the right to read this book, the timing for me couldn't have been better. I am about to make some choices regarding my business that have had me stumped for quite some time. After reading this book, the fog cleared and I now know the direction in which I wish to go.
I must warn you that this book will move you and shake you. And you could erupt at any moment into tears - of joy. You better get ready for a new life - this is very powerful stuff. In fact, I would find it impossible for you to read this and not be changed - in a very good way.
While reading the book you will have a profound respect for human potential - particularly yours. You will be ready and more than willing to make a difference in the world, and what a difference that can make in your life! The power is truly within you, and you will come to know it just in case you've had any doubts.
Andy has a special gift for storytelling which makes this book both an enjoyable and inspirational learning experience. I give this book my highest recommendation. Don't wait. Buy this book and let Andy Andrews moving story change your life.

In The Lost Choice Andy Andrews weaves together history and legend to deliver a very positive, heart-warming message about the value of all human beings and the impact an individual has. His detailed historical settings and characters combined with his compelling writing makes for a real page turner.
The relationship Andrews develops between the main characters of the book is appealing and draws the reader into this circle of friends. As these friends get to know and like each other more, the reader is also growing to know and like them better as well. As the main characters embark on a journey of discovery you are compelled to journey with them.
As a father, I found the concept of legacy between generations that Andrews develops incredibly interesting and emotionally stirring.
There are only a few books that I can honestly say "changed me", The Lost Choice is one of those books. I read it in three sittings and could barely put it down. I highly recommend it!
