Chicken Soup for the Soul- Tough Times, Tough People Review/Giveaway
History of Chicken Soup for the Soul:
Internationally known speakers Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield knew the power of a good story long before Chicken Soup for the Soul was published. Each had built their speaking careers by telling inspirational, motivational and uplifting stories that their audiences could use to discover, experience and retain key concepts and approaches. After years of continuous audience requests that they put their stories into book form, Hansen & Canfield finally agreed. Rather than focusing only on their stories, they decided to reach out to others and seek contributions of powerful tales of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. After rounding up the 101 most inspirational submissions, they were left with an untitled book they both knew had the potential to make quite an impact.
I have always loved the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series The stories are always uplifting and some are very inspiring. When I was given the chance to be on the review team for this series I was very happy. The book that was sent this month is Tough Times, Tough People
