When you're hurting, it helps to read stories from other people who have been through the same thing.  Losing a loved one, whether a parent, a child, a spouse, a sibling or a dear friend, is a shared human experience.  Take comfort and find inspiration in these personal and revealing stories from people who have been there.  Read about how they handled loss and found their way to recovery, finding acceptance, new happiness and meaning in their lives.  This book is like having your own portable support group.

History of Chicken Soup for the Soul

Internationally known speakers Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield knew the power of a good story long before Chicken Soup for the Soul was published.  Each had built their speaking careers by telling inspirational, motivational and uplifting stories that their audiences could use to discover, experience and retain key concepts and approaches.  After years of continuous audience requests that they put their stories into book form, Hansen & Canfield finally agreed.   Rather than focusing only on their stories, they decided to reach out to others and seek contributions of powerful tales of ordinary people doing extra ordinary things.  After rounding up the 101 most inspirational submissions, they were left with an untitled book they both knew had the potential to make quite an impact.

As they searched for a winning title, Jack & Mark each agreed to meditate on the subject for one hour a day.  Jack visualized the image of his grandmother’s chicken soup and remembered how she told him it would cure anything.  The book would have the same healing powers as that soup, but not for the body—for the soul.  Thus, the now famous title was born…Chicken Soup for the Soul.
Chicken Soup for the Soul was released on June 28, 1993 and became a holiday favorite by the end of December.  What drove initial interest was not media attention or celebrity endorsement, but rather word-of-mouth promotion from ordinary people around the country who bought the book and loved it.  Many would return to the bookstore to buy five or ten copies for friends and family.  Thanks to that groundswell of popularity, by September of 1994, Chicken Soup for the Soul was on every major bestseller list in the U.S. and Canada.  Although the media may not have led the charge, they soon caught on.  Chicken Soup for the Soul received coverage from just about every major media outlet in the country, including “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Today Show,” “Larry King Live” and thousands of others.  The series quickly became a pop culture phenomenon, receiving mentions on television programs like “Friends,” “The Sopranos,” “Everybody Loves Raymond,” plus several movies.

Today, more than 15 years after it began, Chicken Soup for the Soul means more to people than just books.  According to Harris Polls, 88.7 percent of the public not only recognizes the Chicken Soup for the Soul brand, but knows what it is.  With more than 112 million books sold to date, almost 200 titles in print and translations into more than 40 languages, Chicken Soup for the Soul is one of the world’s best-known phrases.  Chicken Soup for the Soul reaches people well beyond the bookstore, with CD & DVD collections, company-sponsored samplers, greeting cards, children’s entertainment products, pet food, flowers and many other products in line with Chicken Soup for the Soul’s purpose.  Chicken Soup for the Soul is currently implementing a plan to expand into all media by working with TV networks on several shows and developing a major Internet presence dedicated to life improvement, emotional support
