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!
I love these essays by Robert Fulgham. He has such a gentle wit and a wonderful way of looking at the world around him.
This is the third collection of essays from Robert Fulghum, author of "All I Really Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten". They are humorous and thought-provoking. I enjoyed this very much!
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!"
One of those books easily read in delicius pieces. Each chapter gives you a little something to think about.
Fun to listen to robert Fulghum's wisdom infused with a slight dose of humor. :-)
We all need "perspective" in life. This book evokes attitude adjustment.
Funny rememberances and anecdotal thoughts.A favorite around our house.
A book which brings you into a healthy perspective...helps you to remember not to take everything so seriously. Don't sweat the small stuff.
Easily digestible anecdotes featuring universal wit and wisdom from the insightful and delightful writer Robert Fulghum.
