This cute little book is absolutely amazing, very heart-warming, and incredibly inspiring. The beautiful images on every single page enhance the impact that the stories will have on you. And just like it says in the title, this book Gives Me Hope knowing that not all of humanity is lost. It is definitely something that everyone, no matter how young or old, should read at least once through in their life.

I read this book at a hospital waiting room when my grandmother suddenly died. It was uplifting and made realize that even though horrible things happen -- the smallest acts of love give others hope.

I frequently visit [...] because of the book. I suggest you do the same guys. :)

I'm going to make this a stocking-stuffer this year for my parent's and cousins.

My GMH preorder came in the mail yesterday. I had preordered it in October as a Christmas gift for my parents. I had participated in the "get your name and who gives you hope printed in the book" thing on the book's facebook page. I immediately flipped to the back to find what would really make this a great Christmas present - and saw that instead of my name and "my mom and dad" it said MyNameMy. That's my only problem with this book.

BUT as soon as I came back downstairs from hiding it in my room, my mom walked in and told us that our great grandfather had died that afternoon. I was upset, as was the rest of my family. Later that night, my mom was especially down and I decided to give her the GMH book then. I think it lifted her spirits a little at least. :)
The pictures themselves are very well done in the book. Definitely worth the $10.

I gave this book to my friend who loves to read givesmehope.com and she loved it! The stories are cute, short, and, as the name implies, full of hope. She tells me that whenever she is having a bad day, she reads this book and feels good again. The pictures are beautiful, but not always relevant to the story so don't look too closely. This book is great for a gift or just for yourself and the stories provide inspiration no matter how many times you read them. This is truly the best of Givesmehope.com.

First, I love givesmehope.com. I think it's one of the best things on the internet, and that includes Facebook. I remember the first time I went onto GMH, I cried. And I didn't even cry when I watched The Notebook. And this book had the same effect on me. At the end, I was in tears because it was just beautiful to see all the love and hope that exists in this world.

I received the book 2 weeks earlier than the estimate given by the Amazon. So I acutally got it after 2 weeks of waiting and I ordered it before Christmas. How good can Amazon be even more? I received it in a great condition, packed in a box - inside it was a book in a plastic foil, all nicely wrapped up to get used for reading. Although, they have not done the "free gift text" thing (which is not Amazon's thing, but the seller's thing), everything went fine. You can write the text for yourself.

The book itself is amazing - small in dimensions, but I think I know why it is - a small thing like this can mean a world to somebody else. The 127 most inspiring bite-sized stories are so great that some of them just make you cry. Really make you cry. You still have that hope in humans in love and in humanity of other peoples. Over 127 stories of real people challenging real stuff that makes you cry and actually think about everything. That someone risks his life for his friends, someone fights with cancer and survives etc etc. We need to put Facebook, Twitter and so on, down for a while and read this book. It lets you know that there is still love and humanity in people. I can't put a real review in this few words - I just can't explain it. You have to read it to understand.

Recommended? At all costs.
