HASH(0x996e07a4) out of 5 stars Heart Warming Story In Every Chapter Jan. 8 2015
By ZaiJen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Walder definitely stole my heart with the many stories that have been compiled in this book. Each story is told by a different person who has experienced trials in their life, but found a way to overcome.

I would not say this is a religious book, but it does lead one to believe, there is certainly a higher power.

The people telling the stories often use Hebrew, Yiddish, and other languages when speaking, but the terms that I did not know where easy to understand with help from the glossarry.

Anyone who enjoys reading books where every chapter has a different meaning or twist, should grab this book. I promise you will not want to put it down.

HASH(0x996e09f0) out of 5 stars ” It is such a great feeling and a complete “pick-me-up Feb. 11 2015
By J. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a true believer that things happen for a reason. Coincidences are possible, but there is typically a story behind it whether big or small. Most people, in my opinion, have experienced at least one time in their life, a moment where a situation or a person presents itself/their self and your first thought is, “Wow, I really needed that.” It is such a great feeling and a complete “pick-me-up,” even for just a fraction of time.

Why did I ramble on about this? Because one of those moments happened for me when I read People Speak 4 by Chaim Walder. Does it all seem a little much on my part regarding a collection of true stories by everyday people? Perhaps, for some. But, at the end of the day, what matters is that the stories meant something to me at a time when I needed to take in such inspirational and heartfelt lessons brought forward by people like us all; citizens of this world who want to do good and try to remember to find the positive even in our most darkest of days. No matter their nationality, religion or location. Just a continual thread amongst the human race, good leads to the possibilities of learning and happiness, even after traveling down a painful path.

But, enough about my insight, back to the ebook People Speak 4 in which Chaim Walder, a Rabbi, collects stories submitted by people who feel their experiences are a tool for mankind and show that we all have hills to climb, rivers to cross and obstacles to overcome. Numerous people are driven to supply Rabbi Chaim Walder with the retellings of their stories, so much so, that People Speak 4 is one in a series of ebooks that has graciously allowed us all the opportunity to experience a multitude of recalls, sometimes passed down from generations past.

There are 26 varying short stories contained in People Speak 4 that pay homage to those who were kind enough to share their experiences of pain, humility, education and humor, not only in an intriguing manner, but also in a very humbling tone in some cases. From parenting to expressing concern for friends, helping strangers to realizing the impossible is sometimes possible, many aspects are covered. While People Speak 4 is a quick and easy read, the deeper meaning hidden in each gem is not lost as you jump from one story to the next.

The stories have been translated into many languages, including English. Because the book contains words or phrasing that may not be well understood in English, there is a glossary located in the back to explain some of the Hebrew, Yiddish and Aramaic terminology within the stories. Even with flipping to the glossary while reading about someone’s real life experience, the reader does not lose any timing or meaning. In fact, for myself, I looked at it as a chance to further the wisdom that I took from this literature.

It is hard for me to recall just one story as a favorite since each chapter holds its own unique glow that Rabbi Chaim Walder reveals precisely and allows for the storyteller to have their personality shine through to the reader. You feel as if, by the end of each narration, a sense of understanding of the composer. I often found myself wondering what I would have done in that situation. Whether it would entail the same outcome or not, I would hope that it would be to the best of my ability.

I will say, what might be the lesson I take away, would not necessarily clone for the next reader. Therefore, I will keep my interpretations to myself, allow everyone their own personal journey and just say I am very grateful I had the opportunity to read People Speak 4: Real Life Stories.

I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion based upon my personal experiences.

HASH(0x996e09b4) out of 5 stars An amazing series! Feb. 4 2015
By Jill H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"People Speak" is an amazing book series by Chaim Walder! It contains stories from real people. In "People Speak 4", (which is the book I am reviewing here) stories were shared from a Jewish perspective. The stories are inspirational, encouraging, and sometimes spiritual. Some stories might make you laugh and some might make you cry. Some seem to be written by people who have never had their story published in this series, and others explain times that they have had other stories published in it. Hebrew words with English sounds (transliteration) are inserted in the stories to educate English readers of the Jewish language and culture. There is a glossary in the back of the book defining those words in English.

The stories often reeled me in until the end because I couldn’t predict the endings and I anticipated the outcome in most cases. I had to finish each story most of the time (unless I needed to get cooking started or something) because I needed to know what happened.

There were some occasional typos or grammar errors that I noticed in the book. My eBook copy mentions that this book was first printed in Hebrew so I understand that some words here and there may have not gotten transferred exactly, if that is what happened.

This is my second time reading the "People Speak" series and it is still very interesting to me! Some of the Hebrew words and their English meanings I came across in the stories are sticking with me, which I love. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series!

My review = 4.5 out of 5 stars

HASH(0x996e0ca8) out of 5 stars Everything Happens for a Reason...I am Forever Changed. Feb. 12 2015
By HEATHYRE PERARA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the first book of the People Speak series that I have read, but it won't be the last! This book is full life stories from people who took time to share their tale with Rabbi Chaim Walder. Rabbi Walder did a fantastic job selecting and retelling the stories in such a way that I felt as tho I was there living them right next to the protagonist.

People Speak 4 features 26 stories and focuses on the Jewish perspective and is sprinkled with a lot of Yiddish. Don't worry, there is a glossary in the back for those who are unfamiliar with the vocabulary.

I quickly became emotionally vested in the life of each story teller, I was on a roller-coaster of emotions with every plot twist, triumph or tragedy described. I had a hard time putting the book down. I always have believed that everything happens for a reason, and I try to take everything I learn as a life's lesson. This book has opened my eyes to many new lessons, and I feel that I am forever changed.

I received a copy of this book complimentary for review purposes. Opinions are 100% my own. I can't stress enough that I honestly can not wait to check out the other books in this series.
HASH(0x996e0d08) out of 5 stars A book about people with great Stories March 15 2015
By Mrs.Apgar - Published on Amazon.com

"People Speak 4" by Chaim Walder is the second book of this series of stories. The stories really touch your heart because it about real people telling their human struggles and how they’ve overcome them. I think that’s something everyone can relate it. I was given the opportunity to read this e-book for free as part of a promotion.
Reading this book reminded of stories my grandparents would tell me and my mother retells. I would categorize this book as an emotional journey: some stories will make you laugh, cry, feel jealousy, pain, and happiness. I felt spiritually inspired.
I know what you might be thinking: when we hear spiritual, we automatically think it’s about God. We all have our different interpretations regarding spiritual believes and GOD but reading this book about people with different believes can really open your eyes to the real question: are we really that different? We love, cry, laugh, and we are searching for acceptance and a place to belong.
The people telling the stories often use Hebrew, Yiddish, and other languages so a translation is required. The one thing that I would change is looking up the meaning in the glossary (in the end of the book). I would prefer the meaning be placed italics or as a foot note on the end of the page. I think because it was my second book, I knew what these stories are about and I didn’t want any distraction.
