I read this nonfiction book one chapter at a time. Not because I didn’t like it, but because I felt like I needed to think on and “digest” one chapter before I started reading the next one. I’m sure I’ll go back and read it again.
In The Little Things: Why You Really Should Sweat the Small Stuff Andy Andrews takes stories from history and his own life to illustrate how just one little thing did and still can change the outcome of something much bigger – like a war or a person’s life. It’s along the same lines as “The Butterfly Effect” in that changing something that we deem small – like some nails, 2 degrees, half a nickel – drastically altered the desired outcome. By illustrating how things have been changed in the past he is encouraging us to realize that we can change our future and maybe even the world.
