In his parable of the sheep and the goats, the Savior taught the crucial importance of having concern for our fellow beings. That's what Others is about too, - about loving enough to care, and caring enough to serve. The authors here explore the art of giving.

Interesting short short stories.
Rings and jewels are not gifts but apologies for gifts. The only true gift is a portion of thyself.

70% only see 3 because of the simple word of. We sometimes pass over it as if it is unimportant----like people.

I read this book a long time ago, and have read parts of it again several times. It's a timeless book on the always-timely subject of being loving and charitable to others. It contains superb yet simple true stories that illustrate the power of words and actions, for good or ill, when interacting with others. Some of the stories it contains were easily remembered for years after I'd read them.

I enjoyed this when I read it many years ago. Whether writing original fiction, or true accounts (and this book has both), the Yorgason brothers are accomplished storytellers, and can bring to life gospel principles.

Loved this book as a teenager--helped form my ideals for how to behave toward others. The story entitled "Dogfood" was dramatic and moving.

I liked this book, it was thoughful and insighful...loaded with true stories about people who look outside themselves and try to care for other people and how we can do better at that as well.

I have read this book probably 6 times. I am just reading it again. It helps me to remember to focus on others and gives me ideas about how I can become more like Christ.
