Though the book focuses only on positive 'butterfly effects', it also reminds me that the same principal applies to my careless words and deeds. The Butterfly Effect is the latest book from New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews. Book Summary. The decisions you make and the way you treat others have more impact than you may ever realize. Speaker and New York.
Small but it 'Butterfly Effect' that Andy has also written. Small but it is something we all adore. Now this is a tradition passed down. But in raising my daughter to be who she is, it is likely that one day she may teach it is in the plans. In teaching she can touch a life of a growing mind, maybe one who will make a new discovery or change or notice life just that quarter turn different than most do.
And on the effects pass. You also touch many lives each day.
From your own family to neighbors to members at church to that person you wave at as you go for your daily walk. And like the wings of a butterfly the slight flutter sets off a chain reaction through out the entire universe. Have you thought about how you will be a part of that.
Sep 07, writer Andrews challenges the reader, with the examples he provides, to live more deeply; to recognize our actions impact others, whether for benefit or harm. Sep 07, Donna rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was July 2, , in Gettysburg, PA. Colonel Chamberlain and his men were attacked over and over and are down to almost nothing when he tells them to charge. The results of that charge are amazing! Then, there is the example of Norman Borlaugh and his work with hybridi "The Butterfly Effect" repeatedly makes the point that what you do matters, not just today, but far into the future.
Then, there is the example of Norman Borlaugh and his work with hybridized high yield, disease resistant corn and wheat for arid climates.
It has saved millions of people.
But, was it really just Norman? There is an actual "Butterfly Effect," and I enjoyed reading how it went from something scientists thought was laughable to a scientific fact called, "The Law of Sensitive Dependence Upon Initial Conditions.
I am thankful to the Book Sneeze program for having the ability to read and comment on this book. Aug 27, Valerie Dykstra rated it liked it Shelves: Andy Andrews book, The Butterfly Effect, is a lovely little book.
It's a hard-cover book of pages, all sporting lovely graphics or photos. Don't be mislead by my saying it's pages. Each page only has one or two sentences. Very easily read in 10 minutes. The back of the book says, "Every single thing you do matters.
In actuality, the book wasn't about me at all: It was about people who really did impact the world. Very little was in the book about how "I" could make a difference.
It's a lovely little gift book that has a great little message. But I dare say, even if I do everything God created me to do, chances are I'll make some lives better and create a better world, but I probably won't be changing the world.
I want to be an asset to this world. I want to be all God created me to be and do all he created me to do. I'm not so sure, and this book didn't convince me otherwise, that I will change the world.

The book starts with the fact that when one butterfly flap it's wings it sets the molecules in the air into motion causing more molecules to go into action and in effect cause a hurricane on the opposite side of the world.
Case in A little book with a couple of stories yet it reinforces the fact that everyone in this world has something of value to offer the world. Case in point. During the Battle of Gettysburg, the Rebel soldiers outnumbered the Union soldiers and killed many in battle, but due to the split second action of one particular colonel, a group of 80 Union soldiers captured over Confederate troops in effect turning the tide of the Civil War moreso into the hands of the Union and keeping it intact.
If that man had not done that, the U. Sep 08, Nancy rated it really liked it. This book is a small coffee table book that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Chamberlain, gave the order to fix bayonets and charge. His troops were severely depleted and had few bullets to fight any longer. By fixing their bayonets and charging, the confederate army faltered and retreated. According to some, this was how the Civil War was won. What we do matters.

Jul 16, Caitlin rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Mar 02, Chip Atkinson rated it really liked it. Who knew internet porn could be so interesting? It is a brilliant concept in reporting. Follow the consequences of people's actions without judgement. This time it is chiefly about the effect an internet guru, Fabian, with no direct connection to the porn industry, yet he has become its largest distributor.
In the process, his companies have decimated the porn film industry, transferring all the wealth from its producers to himself. Its impossible for me to feel sorry for the porn industry, and Who knew internet porn could be so interesting?
Its impossible for me to feel sorry for the porn industry, and I am not alone. I am not judgemental, its a fact well documented by Ronson. This is one of many butterfly effects for porn performers, no one cares about them personally. Even people who watch porn disdain its performers.
Yet, because of free porn sights, all of their work is easily attainable by anyone, anytime, forever. It makes it difficult to have a career outside of the sex industry without being discovered. The author reveals several stories of former porn actors who got out of the business and tried to lead normal careers, only to be outed by internet porn fans.
Then there is the Ashley Madison hacking scandal. It turns out, very few women populated the site, making it improbable male users actually carried out affairs. Men would spend hours having sexual conversations online with bots. One of the tragic butterfly effects involved a Baptist Seminary professor who killed himself after being exposed.
From the tragedy, his adult children learned an incredible lesson.
Hiding shame is deadly. No matter where you stand politically, spiritually or morally on pornography, The Butterfly Effect is an enlightening and thought provoking work.

Andrews starts with the result of a historical event and traces back through decisions made, some generations past, to attempt to discover who ultimately deserves recognition. Easy read, quick read — took me less than an hour — but with a powerful message. Jul 26, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: This little book gives historical examples of how one action by one person forever altered the lives of generations to come.
Our actions don't have to be big to have dramatic and unknown effects on those around us. A nice reminder that each of us matters, not only to our dear ones, but to everyone, everywhere. Jul 21, Audra rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was a nice book to read. It makes you think about what you want in life.

It is a short read, definitely a recommendation for anyone that needs a spiritual lift. Jan 21, Svetlana Kurilova rated it really liked it Shelves: This is one of these inspirational books that makes you think that every single decision you make matter, you matter!
Loved the historical references to the butterfly effect. Fast read and a good reminder of YOUR impact!
Feb 09, Nana rated it it was ok. Really like the idea of the book: Applied this idea into real life means that every life matters and even small acts of you today can make huge impacts on others in the future. However the book only raises awareness about the idea but does not show any scientific evidence proving that theory. The rest of the book focuses on giving examples about the theory rather than proving it.
Beautiful, Inspiring short read.

I will be using the idea with the young people I know.To be honest I have thought about this book for more time than it took for me to read it. Beautiful, Inspiring short read. Without a church sweeper, the image of God's house will be tarnished and spoiled. This is an excellent explanation of why every life is important.
I like the premise of the book; everything you do matters, even the smallest thing I saw this and was curious about the story of the solitary Union solider who's actions at Gettysburg were credited with changing the fate of our nation.
