“Every single thing you do matters.” This is the message of Andy Andrews’ book The Butterfly Effect. Through the explanation of Edward Lorenz’s theory and the stories of Joshua Chamberlain, George Washington Carver, and others, the book shows how even one action of one person can have a far-reaching effect.
The point of The Butterfly Effect grew more and more meaningful for me as Andy Andrews dug deeper into the histories of people. The mesage unfolded wonderfully. Plus, I loved the presentation of this little book. It’s like a grown-up picture book; every page is beautiful.
One thing I would have liked to have seen was more of an acknowledgement of God as the one who gives us opportunities to make a difference. Also, we do have a responibility to make good choices, but we can’t take credit for “changing the world,” because it is God who works through us and allows us to have an effect on others.
All in all, this book gets a thumbs up. Thought-provoking and engaging, it will leave you with the knowledge that you are created uniquely and that everything you do truly does matter.
