This book gives hope to those who are looking for examples of how other people deal with life's challenges. This book provided me insights to the "stories-behind-the stories" and will make you think about life differently after having read this book!

35 of 38 people found the following review helpful By Susan Kandell (dabronx101@aol.com) on October 14, 1999
Format: Paperback
Although I worked on this book with Jackie (I photographed many of the people who are profiled within), it is, of course difficult for me to be unbiased. But after meeting twenty of these exceptional people, it is hard to come away from this book untouched. They are truly an inspiration to us all, with Jackie at front of the class - leading the pack. I am thrilled to be associated with a book like this, a book that can motivate us all to get up and DO SOMETHING FOR OTHERS!

I can't begin to explain the way this book makes you feel. Reading this book made me want to get out in the world and do something nice for someone else. This is a book I will want to read over and over again, and HIGHLY recomend you read it!

What a wonderful book! It pushes all the right buttons, in all the right ways. What more could a reader who needs motivation ask for! These stories are phenomenal, and they deserve everyone's attention. If you have not read it, do so, and if you have think of someone you have not recommended it to, that you could. It's a message worth sending, and, as the book shows, no positive effort is ever wasted! I LOVE this book!
