Having recently come across some promotional material from Jack Canfield, one of the authors of this book, I was convinced that it was worth my time, so I ordered Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul as well as Chicken Soup for the Soul.
Just in case you are as ignorant as I was about these books, they are great! Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul is a collection of “101 Healing Stories of Courage and Inspiration.” The stories are truly touching. The book is very well written.
Most of the stories are about people battling cancer. In addition to the most excellent stories, the stories reveal the uninformed mindset of the medical profession and their patients concerning cancer. This is the same innocent ignorance that I had when I was first diagnosed with cancer in 1997 (see the beginning of my story on my 3 Cancer Battles Page). My story there is a work in progress, so stay tuned.
For anyone who loves human interest stories, this book is a must read, even if you don’t have cancer. It is about courage and determination. It will inspire you! With its short story format, it is easy to read just one or two stories a day, if you can pull yourself away from the book.
I am still waiting for Chicken Soup for the Soul to arrive.
