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!

This is Fulghum at his best. Very touching collection of observations from both sides of the refrigerator door.

"Uh-oh" embraces "here we go again" and "Now what?" and "You never can tell what's going to happen next" and "So much for plan A" and "Hang on, we're coming to a tunnel" and "No sweat" and "Tomorrow's another day" and "You can't unscrable an egg" and "A hundred years from now it won't make any difference."

"Uh-oh" is more than a momentary reaction to small problems. "Uh'oh" is an attitude - a perspective on the universe. It is a part of an equation that summarizes my view of the conditions of existence:

"uh-huh" + "oh-wow" + "uh-oh" + "oh, God" = "ah-hah!"
