emoticon I pre-ordered my copy of The Spark from an online retailer and couldn't wait to get it and start reading. So, I swung by Borders with my girlfriend to pick up a copy for myself early.

This is supposed to be my thoughts on the book's first chapter right? So, let me get started....

I never really knew anything about Chris other than he created Spark People. I now know that I can relate to him in many ways. The whole anxiety thing is pretty big in my book as well as the awkward shyness thing. It's also really awesome to read about how he discovered all his dreams but then it goes a step farther to realize that the same things have either happened to me or are starting to. Did I mention how cool it is that he had a goal early on to just help people?

I'm in!

Overall I am just really excited to be reading the book and to discover how much I can relate to the author.

    I'm with you...I'm (im)patiently waiting for Amazon.com to deliver mine, so I tried to scout out Costco and Wal-Mart. TOTALLY disappointed - neither vendor had it. So since I live in the country, I will have to wait...

    I loved Chris' story too. I am amazed at how someone who is so successful had to overcome those types of challenges. It really spoke to me.

    I liked his baby elephant analogy too. I have a lot of tethers I need to break.

    Congrats. on getting your book.
