Me gustan los libros motivacionales, así que este no iba a ser la excepción, pero realmente no me gustó.
Hubo historias que sí me gustaron, pero otras simplemente me aburrieron. Supongo que estas reflexiones fueron hechas para personas con más edad, así que no me sentí tan a gusto con la lectura.
Pero estoy convencida de leer Sopa de pollo para el alma adolescente, lo veo más adecuado para mí.

One of my favorite quotes in the book by Oscar Wilde is, "I have many flowers." he said, "but the children are the most beautiful flowers of all." Pastor John R. Ramsey shares a touching short story you will not forget. Then there's Christmas Day in the Morning by Pearl S. Buck that will sure to make you cry! Les Brown wrote an amazing story on "What Goes around Comes around" that I thoroughly enjoyed knowing about. You'll laugh aloud after reading Jack Canfield's short snippet on "Discouraged?" ...more

Una edulcorada visión de distintos aspectos de la vida. Agradable para leer pero la verdad no recuerdo que me haya aportado nada interesante. Probablemente dentro de este tipo de libros sea valioso porque está bien escrito pero no es el tipo de libros que despiertan mi interes. A los que les atrae la temática creo que les va a gustar.

So if you couldn't tell by the title, this is the 2nd book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Not that you have to read them in order. Since they're a collection of short stories, you can read whatever book in whatever order you prefer. I do think starting at the beginning is always better though, because in the case of this series, it's when the work is more original and not repeated a thousand times over.

Chicken Soup for the Soul in its second helping is much like the first book in that

This book is fantastic so far. I amd on the section< "On Dying" and just read the story(forgot the tital) about when the man who was a Marine went to another Marines house to tell the wife of the soldier that he past away. Puting myself in the position of this man really made me think. How would it feel to wake up everyday and think, "I am going to die today."? Then I thought of how difficult it would be to go to people you have never met before and tell them they will never see their father ...more

I Loved this book, in my own words i thought the author did fantastic. What i loved most was how the stories in the book ether made me think about things in another way, softened my heart, or just make me laugh.
I would recommend this to anyone. I think that if someone were to read the second series of chicken soup for the soul, I think they will injoy it and be inspired with some of the heartbreaking, funny, heart toughing, and just a story your amazed by type of stories.

At first I gave this book 2.5 stars but I'll just stick with 2 stars because I still feel like I wasn't completely honest with my rating.

While the stories that weren't about god were actually good, I was disappointed by how the majority of them were directed to religious people. I eventually struggled with finishing the book and stopped counting how many times I closed it and put it away because things like "God put me through this to teach me a lesson" and "I dropped to my knees and asked god f

Хүн чанар гэдэг үг яагаад "хүн" гэдэг үгтэй хамт байдгийг мэдэх үү? Яагаад гэвэл хүн хүн чанараа алдах тэр үед хүн биш болон хувирна гэсэн үг юм. Цаг хугацаа өнгөрөх тусам хүмүүс хүн чанаргүй болж, хүн гэдэг амьтан өөрөө үнэгүйдэх болжээ. Ийм хахир хатуу ертөнцөд итгэл найдвар, гэрэл гэгээ авчирдаг, хүнээ гээгээгүй хүмүүсийн энгийн агаад агуу түүхүүд энд бичигджээ.
Заримдаа амьдралд гомдох, бууж өгмөөр санагдах үе байдаг. Тэр үедээ би үүнийг барьж аваад уншдаг. Сэтгэл маань нэг л өөдрөг, сайхан

I loved the first book! Many of the stories touched me deeply. I felt that this books stories were not nearly as touching or poignant as the first. There are still some gems to be found between the covers though. The first book spoiled me.

Inspiring and thought-provoking. Reading this collection of stories gave me a stronger thirst for life -- to help others, to learn as much as I can during this life, and to improve myself and work on my personal development on a daily basis.

I read my first "Chicken Soup for the Soul" book when I was in high school about 18 years ago. My friend lent it to me. As I read this book, I could not help but be moved by its stories. To my friend who lent me her book ... thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A very inspiring set of stories, poems, and quotes. You will probably tear up a little bit at some of them (or many of them, as I did). I had never read a Chicken Soup book, but if they are all like this one, I will gladly read more.

I was absolutely moved just having read 3 stories from "On Learning" section; And hope started to build up inside me when I read "Overcoming obstacles." This book is a true inspiration. I recommend it with a full 5-star rating.
