One of my favourite motivational books are the Chicken soup for the soul series. Just like a few sips of chicken soup is soothing for a cold, similarly, these books are soothing for the reader’s soul. These books are compilation of stories shared by people.
In 1993 motivational speakers Jack Canfield and Mark Victor started with an idea that people could help each other by sharing their stories.So they compiled the best 101 stories in a book.
They were turned down by one publisher after the other until they met the publisher Peter Vergso. He read the book and loved the stories and decided to give the book a chance. Chicken soup for the soul turned out to be the most popular and loved books ever published, it sold 11 million copies. Today they have more than 250 books in the series.
