But what do we do in tough times? How do we hold on? What motivates us to get up again. Too keep trying for one more step, day, event?
I think it is part in knowing we are not here alone. We have God beside us, often carrying us through. Our family and friends are often in the very same boat with us. Mostly helping us row with that one oar that is left. People have done this before us...and came through stronger. We can grow and have patience and strength by hearing their stories. In Chicken Soup

I love the Chicken Soup series of books and found the stories in this particular one quite inspiring -- feel free to read the rest of my review on This Full House Gone Shoppin' or follow the following link to take you there:
This is a great book for folks going through tough times of any sort. The stories tell how others got through tough times and give you ideas of how to handle them yourself.

Life is full of resilient people. Challenging times bring out the inner strength that we may not have realized we are capable of possessing.
As a reader from third world country, i think some of the stories are not inspiring at all. Eg : because of the depression you cant travel anywhere. becoz of some minor injuries or a few problems made you feel depressed and thinking you are great because you are able to overcome it sounded a bit exaggerated to me. Maybe these stories inspired other people but not the people from 3rd world country im sure. Granted there are a few other stories in this book which are reaaly inspiring. So, for me i ...more

101 Kisah tentang Bertahan di Tengah Krisis Ekonomi dan Kesulitan Hidup Lainnya (+10 Bonus Kisah tentang Keyakinan)

Sebagian besar kisah di dalam buku ini bercerita tentang kesulitan yang terkait dengan ekonomi, dan sisanya tentang kesulitan hidup lainnya. Kebanyakan penulisnya menceritakan bagaimana mereka mengatasi kesulitan tersebut, menerima kehidupan barunya, dan lantas menikmatinya, setelah melalui kebangkrutan finansial, penyakit kronis, kecelakaan, kepergian orang tercinta, bencana alam,
I don’t know about you but for me, times just seem a little tougher than they’ve used to be. It’s nice to be able to pick up a book like Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People and get a bit of inspiration throughout my day. Real stories from peoples everyday lives like our own can be one the greatest up lifters in this day and age next to the Bible.

This book is filled with 101 stories about overcoming the economic crisis and other daily challenges. It’s very easy to browse through,

I always love Chicken Soup for the Soul and the stories in it very much
I enjoyed reading this book while Im in the car or waiting rooms in hospital or anywhere. It tells many short stories about tough times and how we shall be tough enough to overcome any matter. I can say I liked it a little bit

A good book but probably it did not really have an impact on me since I have not gone through similar circumstances. However definitely a should-read book for those who have been sacked etc as a result of the crisis.

It was a very interesting book. I understood that everyone has tough times. I love this book. I enjoyed this book.
Martin Goldberg
Great content. Listened to the Audible audio version, which was excruciating to due terrible narration. Buy the book.

Well, I thought I'd read this for the uplifting stories, but they all made me kind of sad, really. :)
this book has become sort of my bible, i only read in when im in confused or troubled times...
Pretty good book with mostly stories of how people survived the economic downturn.
Not the Best Chicken Soup book I've read...but I still enjoyed the book.
