Andy Andrews weaves a story based on scientific principles that helps us focus on the impact that we have on others - which Andrews calls the Butterfly Effect. Originally written as a book for the prevention of suicide, this book has become a runaway success with broad application.
This is a quick read, just over 100 pages. It is a great gift, particularly to someone who has impacted your life. The publisher is Thomas Nelson.
Andy uses examples from history where one action by one individual has impacted millions in later generations. Andy says, "There are generations yet unborn whose very lives will be shifted & shaped by the moves and actions you take today."
Since we just came through the Christmas season, many of you will remember the story of George Bailey in It's A Wonderful Life, where George saw what would have happened if he hadn't been born. This book may make you think along the same lines.
You do matter. More than you know.
