Reviews - What do customers think about Be the Change! Change the World. Change Yourself.?

People can make a difference  Nov 25, 2006
I enjoyed reading this book because it helped me understand how regular people like me can make a difference in the world. Even small acts of giving will accumulate and improve the way things are. There are so many suggestions in the book that if everyone took just one, we'd see the difference. Sometimes I think you have to be a saint or a celebrity to influence people, but here's proof that anyone can make a positive contribution.
Inspirational and Practical  Nov 24, 2006
I was given Be the Change! as a gift and put it next to my bed. I picked it up one night and couldn't put it down.

It is a great collection of inspiring stories, tales and practical tips about how focusing on the well being of others can change your life for the better. It immediately struck a powerful cord with me.

When I put the book down I felt like I had a game plan for my own service; and inspiration to know that I too could be the change. Bravo to the team that put this book together!
An Inspiring Must-Read!!   Nov 21, 2006
This book is an absolute must-read for anyone who has an interest in community service, or needs an inspirational push to get into the giving spirit during this holiday season. People from all walks of life share their stories and personal perspective on what it means to them to volunteer, and how their good deeds have made a positive difference - in their own lives as well as in the world around them. And, you don't have to read it from cover to cover in one sitting...pick it up each day for a daily dose of inspiration! A great gift to share with friends and loved ones.

Groceries -- that's my bag  Nov 11, 2006
Reviewer: A. Whipple, Oregon

The book's title tells it all. Well, most of it: Remember the 15 minutes of fame accorded to transcendental meditation, a solution to the world's problems which, according to a Scientific American article, was simple, took just 20 minutes a day and a one-time investment of around $250? "Be The Change!" would serve as a fine title for any of the dozens of TM-offshoot titles; the technique - as well as the design and packaging - have all been updated, and arguably for the better.
The new mantra? Community volunteerism. "Before my husband passed away...I missed the feeling that someone needed me," begins an eight-line testimonial in a chapter called "Sparks that ignite the spirit." You could finish the paragraph yourself: "One night I saw a news piece about...bagging groceries for AIDS patients...and a light went on. I've been volunteering there ever since."
Skeptical? Just close your eyes, sit comfortably, and let the title fill your head.
An Inspiring Call to Action  Nov 3, 2006
Living in an age with 24/7 coverage of disasters, wars and generally depressing news could easily be a recipe for national learned helplessness. I'm reading "Be the Change" and am reminded page after page, one uplifting story after another, that I'm surrounded everyday by amazing people who are keeping hope within easy reach whenever it's needed. From the household wisdom of countless community volunteers to the heart felt perspectives of iconic national leaders, it's a book that offers new ideas and fresh inspiration for getting going on them. I also love Editor Nunn's lists of books and quotes that inspire. I look forward to giving this book to my organization's management group as well as to my family for the holidays. It's an innoculation against cynicism and despair and an inspiring call to action.
