A great story, and a great way to be all you can be Mar 9, 2007
I loved this book, I couldn't put it down. The story is a fun, quick read, and it is heavily laced with very good self-help suggestions. The seven decisions, if implemented can really help you. I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about it!

a mixture of story telling combined with the most important messages I have read to date - Thank you Andy Andrews
Wow, don't miss out Mar 6, 2007
This book is simply amazing. If you are looking for a one day read, that you simply cannot put down and learn some "secrets" to life, buy this book. The story line has you on the edge of your seat for over 200 pages. I was tempted many times to go right to the end and read the last chapter. There are two chapters that I will never ever forget. One is when the Traveler was speaking one of the Wise people about "the buck stops here" I think he said something like God does not always make us right choices, but he always allows us to make the choice right. Amazing to say the least. The second one is when the Traveler is with the angel Gaberial. Wow, cures to cancer, and everything else that is present, were simply a decision away. Never quit!!! Very inspiring. I loved every page of it. Worth buying a case and givng to every person I know.
WOW! Feb 17, 2007

Tired of kissing frogs? READ THIS! Feb 16, 2007
Ardent readers know you sometimes have to "kiss a lot of frogs" to find a gem. Persistence pays off, however, when you finally run across a book that has the potential to change people's lives. Such a book is THE TRAVELER'S GIFT by Andy Andrews. I stress the word "potential" because there will always be some who will never glean knowledge when it is presented to them all gift wrapped in glitter paper with a flowering satin bow.
This is indeed not the first book along this same or similar theme. In fact, there are many that come to mind, all of which possess a certain richness to them and all of which give the reader pearls. What the reader chooses to do with them is another question entirely. There will always be readers, and subsequently, reviewers, who will say things like, "there's nothing new here", and these are the unfortunate ones of which I speak. Perhaps they have read similar volumes before, the sad truth is, they could read a hundred more and never get the gist of a single one. They search for some magical formula that will transform their lives simply by ingesting the words, but all the success books in the world will accomplish nothing if not applied. This one is surely no exception, but the message is definitely here if the reader is ready to receive it.
While the basic premise may have similarity to a Stephen Covey or even Napoleon Hill, Andrews' book is presented in a very unique way. The story features a man struggling to make ends meet, keeping his head above water, when suddenly life comes crashing down upon him. With the weight of the world upon his shoulders, in a moment of desperation, our main character even contemplates ending his life, thinking his family to better off without his failures dragging them down.
An instant before a crash, our subject embarks on an incredible journey. A journey that forces him to examine what can be done to put his life, not just back on track, but on a new course that will transcend even all that he ever dreamed of.
This is a quick and easy study of changing your life by changing your mind. The information is here to make anyone a success. What readers do with that information is up to them. Follow these seven steps and the sky is the limit. Read the book and complain that there is nothing new here and you will be right. There will be nothing new here for you.
