Some stories made me laugh, some made me cry.
Carol
Readers Digest editors threw down the gauntlet with "write your life story in 150 words or less".
Jim
I love it when I open a book,( not expecting much)and read it from cover to cover in one sitting.

I think if someone takes the time and effort to condense their life story to 150 words, it is going to be worth reading. This is a collection of the best of these life stories as submitted and chosen by the Readers' Digest editors. I read the whole book straight through in just a few hours, but plan to go back to read a story here and there so that I can give each story more consideration. Some people wrote about a single memorable experience. Some people wrote about a person (parent, spouse, child...) that helped them find their way or set an example or made their life complete. Some stories made me laugh, some made me cry. The stories are rich, uplifting, heartbreaking, laughable and more. One car salesman wrote about his career in a way I will always remember. After reading all of them, I was inspired and wondered what (or who) I would choose to write about if I had to condense my 50+ years into 150 words. I finally determined what is the pivotal story of my life and wrote down my own 150-word story. Not many books propel me to think about what I value most and to act on it. The best ones do.

As a contributor, I am biased to a degree. Still, the coming together of so many hearts and minds to examine life so "pointedly" (150 words or less) is an extraordinary experience for author and reader alike. The humanity of these stories leaves me chuckling and, at times, breathless...

I ordered it for myself, and am still reading it a little bit each day. Most of the stories are interesting.

These are 150 stories of real life - each told in 150 words or less. We meet all types of people from all walks of life and each with an individual point of view.

It is moving and amazing. Not all the people are writers in the usual sense. But, each of them tells a story that is a part of their life.

I am so very glad I read this book. And I think that if you are a fan of human nature and people watching, this is a book you will love.

It makes you see the world in all the beauty that there is to see. Some of the stories are so sad you will have tears in your eyes. But, every story will allow you to have awareness of how blessed we are to share the world with one another.

I thought with each story I would be laughing and/or crying. It didn't quite meet my expectations. It is a nice book to have on hand when you are only going to get a few minutes here and there to read (e.g. in waiting rooms)

Love the stories in this book. Not just a boring set of the same old same old. It is a complete set of stories for every reader. Love the one on page 111.
