And have used it all our lives...'Uh-oh' is a way up near the top of a list of small syllables with large meanings... — 'Uh-oh'...is a frame of mind. A philosophy.

From Library Journal
The author of the bestselling All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten ( LJ 10/1/88) and It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It ( LJ 10/1/88) has put together another volume of bite-sized inspirational whimsies. Drawn from his experiences as a child, as a preacher, and from everyday life, Fulghum's eye-opening (although never moralistic or preachy) anecdotes are written in a comfortable and unpretentious style, giving one the homey feeling of sitting on grandpa's porch on a lazy Sunday afternoon sipping iced tea. Some of the essays are reminiscent of Garrison Keillor, flavored with a bit of Norman Vincent Peale. In any case, it is worth taking the time to appreciate simple pleasures and human kindness in today's hectic and stress-filled world. Fulghum's book is one way to get started. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/1/91.

Uh-oh is more than a momentary reaction to small problems. Uh-oh is an attitude...a perspective of the universe.
His observations are so common, yet his emotion so genuine.
A must read for everyone!
