Practicing Affirmation by Sam Crabtree is a great book to help you appreciate others and what they do. It also teaches you how to truly appreciate others.
Everyone likes to hear that they did something right or praise worthy. In Practicing Affirmation Sam approaches praising someone from a Christian perspective. He talks about praising the Christ-like qualities
in people, so that God gets the credit for creating the person. Sam also covers issues like, the right way to affirm people, the difference between affirmation and encouragement, and affirming people who don't return the kind words. This book is a good book for everyone. We can all use a little help with affirming the good qualities in our family, friends and even strangers. Sometimes we tend to take people for granted without even realizing it. This book is a great way to get you on the right track to a loving and affirming relationship with others.
All in all I thought this book was good. It had a lot of good and useful information. The first chapter was a little harder for me to get into, but the rest of the book is great. I would recommend it to people who want to have a good relationship with others, and people who want to be a blessing to others. I would give this book a 3.5/5 stars.
