Happy Friday y'all!! A huge thank you to Danna Pycher and Rebecca @ Love at First Book for having Rumor Has It on their tour today as well as providing an ARC of 3rd Generation and Beyond to be reviewed!
"Yesterday's lessons, for tomorrow's future..." 3rd Generation and Beyond is a book of powerful life philosophies according to a Third Generation Holocaust descendant. Each chapter gives a little more insight into how we, as individuals, can empower ourselves and the world around us.
By this time, you would think we would have learned our lesson. By now, you would think humankind would have found a way to live together peacefully. For some reason that is not the case. 3rd Generation takes us on a journey through the perspective of a young woman who wants to know why we can't seem to find common ground. Her insightful life philosophies are all inspired by her view of the world as a Third Generation descendant of the Holocaust. Her grandparents experienced the worst of times, yet still held onto the belief that life can and should be beautiful. Their life lessons will help you discover how we can all create a better world. ... a treasure of inspiring, thoughtful life lessons interwoven with what Danna learned from her grandparents who were Holocaust survivors.
I haven’t taken on many tours as of late but I couldn't help but to jump at the chance of joining this one. The Holocaust is an event that should never be forgotten and should be embedded in our entire DNA. There are so many important lessons to be learned from it.
3rd Generation and Beyond is part memoir, part self-help book. A lot of the self-help part is common sense but sadly, common sense some of us lack. It’s not until the author of the book suffers a terrible accident that she starts to apply the many teachings her grandparents, who were Holocaust survivors, passed down to her.
This is truly a beautiful book. It’s engaging with a nice flow, easy to understand and easy to relate to. I thoroughly enjoyed the unique take on the Holocaust.
As I mentioned before some of the self-help portion is common sense but I enjoyed reading how the author applied it to her life. Each valuable lesson is attached to a memory of her grandparents and parents. By making herself a better person, she honors the memory of all who suffered and survived the Holocaust. Lessons and morals are great, noble and necessary but until they become personal, they don’t carry any value and only then will you find a reason to apply it to your life.
Remember, folks, live your life golden so that we can honor all of those that came before us and leave a legacy worth being proud of.
3rd Generation and Beyond is 50% off for the Kindle edition on Amazon and 20% off for the physical book throughout the tour. Take advantage of this awesome deal and read a great book.
