    Great read!

    This is a great book to have and listen to over a period of time or all at once like you would read any other book. The stories were inspiring and uplifting and on dark days it was a great reminder to be grateful for everything you have.

    Not my favorite Chicken Soup

    What did you like best about Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive? What did you like least?

    Was disppointed on the chosen short stories. I own nearly all of this series from Jack Canfield. Not his best book. :-(

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The encouragement for breast cancer.

    True Stories Have Most Power

    I appreciated some part of every story. Especially since they were true stories. It also did not vother me that many of the stories were from Christian believers. It was the consequence of attitudes that mattered and inspired. The Voice actors were wonderfully true to each persons age and background. Well done. Thank you.

    Encouraging & warm

    I find that this is a book that you can listen to again and again and each time something different touches me and encourages me as a woman, as a businessperson, as a daughter, as a mother and as an individual who struggles to find the positive in every situation. Yes some may think that it is soft and twee but I genuinely believe that positivity affects my life massively and to be regularly encouraged with a medium that is a selection of short stories so not too preachy and obviously personal to the writer. All in all take it with a pinch of salt - as a reminder and an encouragement.

    Too religious for me

    The book is ok and I did listen to it in its entirety. I found that nearly every single story equated good things happening to God. If you're religious, I'm sure you will enjoy this, however, I wasn't expecting this from the description of the book. There are some nice stories, but I believe that humans are responsible for creating their own path in life, not some higher being. For this reason I can only give it 3 stars. Nice enough to listen to but too preachy for me.

    dont buy

    This book did not make me feel more positive. More negative thinking posive thinking.

    The only way to achieve positive thinking is to look inwardly and see what you can do not what they can't do to be loving and compassionate and being mindful.
