“The Butterfly Effect” by Andy Andrews

“The Butterfly Effect” by Andy Andrews

The premise of this book is based on the theory that when a butterfly flaps its wings, it can trigger a hurricane across the world. How one seemingly small act can influence and change the world. Mr. Andrews tells two different stories in this book that if one decision was made differently, the whole world could have been changed.

I have to say that this book was first visually pleasing. The artwork and pictures interwoven throughout the text very much complimented the story being told.

This also was a very fast read. I was able to sit and read within 30 minutes.

Even more so though than being an easy read, this book has given me so much to think about and a challenge. A quote that has stuck with me since reading it is, “Every single thing you do matters.” It has shaped my view of how I go about my every day life. My interaction with my family and those who I cross paths with has become more meaningful. Because you truly do not know how one choice, one action can effect those in years to come.

I highly recommend this book. It is one that I will read more than once, and will share with my children.
