MY THOUGHTS ON THE BOOK: My grandmothere used to tell me that Chicken Soup could cure anything.  She was talking about the brothy stuff you eat.  This 20th anniversary edition of the book is a Chicken Soup  that is really perfect for anyone and a great cure all. I find when I am struggling in life there is a Chicken Soup story to help lift me up.  The stories include stories of love, parenting, learning something new, and overcoming obstacles in life. I own several different editions of Chicken Soups For The Soul and love each one.  The stories in any edition are only 2-3 pages long and are just perfect for quick reading moments. The stories are guaranteed to make each reader laugh, cry, or just soak the story in. It is a great book to read, a great book to give as a gift, a great book to have in a waiting room...anywhere.  I read mine just before going to bed.  This is beyond a must read, this is a must have!
