Anyone who has a personal business needs to read this book. I love self help books but this is set up so different. I really enjoyed the fiction story that went along with the keys for personal success. It was easy to read and I enjoyed all the decisions that were included. I have also read another of Andy Andrews books and was equally impressed this man really knows his stuff.
Great parable! I loved reading about the travels as well as the history that is brought into this book. I am not a "history" person, but I probably learned more in this book in a FUN way than I ever did in a high school history class!

In this book the main character, down on his luck, is sent back in time to learn "lessons" from some great historical figures as well as at least one that you may not be familiar with. The wisdom and the plot intricacies were great. I have lent my book out to so many people. Every one has been deeply touched by this emotional story.

I loved this book. It provided excellent examples about how to increase energy and happiness in your life and wove it through a very exciting story line. As a practical way to get away from all the negativity in the world this book is a great help. I highly recommend this...I am reading it out loud to my entire family!
In an era of inspiring allegorical tales, The Travelers Gift by Andy Andrews took me on a somewhat different journey than I expected. While the basic concepts, or Decisions of Success are not new to anyone who has had even the slightest exposure to motivational literature, how the story unfolds was somewhat unique and intriguing enough to hold my interest.
As with most books of this type, which rarely propose or expose anything new, it is the approach and/or the twist that serves as the impetus to continue reading. The writer hoping to catch the reader at a vulnerable moment, or with some guise, that will embolden them to take action and change their lives. The catches for me were the whole time/space concept (I wont spoil it for you by saying more) and the smattering of interesting and easily recognizable history.
The Travelers Gift is a very quick, light read that should leave most of us touched anywhere from energized to change the world; to, at a minimum, momentarily being more thankful for what we have in our lives.
