Wisdom in small doses -- much better than I expected.
One of those books you set aside to read in small pieces so each chapter is savored.
From the author of \"All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten\" comes another show-and-tell about life in general, and the prionciples that guide us all.
He is a natural-born storyteller who can pluck at your heartstrings, tickle your funny bone and point up a moral all at the same time.
Highly entertaining author!
The principles guiding this book are not far from the spirit of Show-and-Tell. It is stuff from home--that place in my mind and heart where I most truly live. Fulghum.
Humerous book about everyday events.
In his first phenomenal best-seller, EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN, Robert Fulghum reminded readers everywhere of some plain and still-true truths. Now, picking up where he left off, Fulghum turns our eyes to show-and-tell, weddings, his own ten commandments, and more insightful and unique observations on what our world is and was....
Fulghum makes life sounds so simple and so funny.
Here we have some random reflections of a Unitarian minister. Each chapter is rather short and a quick read. I enjoyed the book but found it a bit sweet.
All of his books are fantastic. Highly recommended.
Stories about life, make you think more about keeping it simple.
You will laugh and learn with this book!
FROM THE AUTHOR TO THE READER
Show-and-Tell was the very best part of school for me, both as a student and as a teacher. As a kid, I put more into getting ready for my turn to present than I put into the rest of my homework. Show-and-Tell was real in a way that much of what I learned in school was not. It was education that came out of my life experience.
As a teacher, I was always surprised by what I learned from these amateur hours. A kid I was sure I knew well would reach down into a paper bag he carried and fish out some odd-shaped treasure and attach meaning to it beyond my most extravagant expectation.
Again and again I learned that what I thought was only true for me...only valued by me...only cared about by me...was common property. The principles guiding this book are not far from the spirit of Show-and-Tell. It is stuff from home--that place in my mind and heart where I most truly live.
Its a book on the philosophy of everyday life not realized before and ordinary things looked at in an extraordinary way. It's short anecdotes on his life and observations on life....much like the thoughts and subject matter broached by Andy Rooney or Erma Bombeck.
A great read-and-reflect book from the author of "All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten".
Laugh Laugh Laugh--there is no way you can read this book & not feel good when you are done. I had tears running down my cheeks from laughing. I wish this guy lived next door to me--i'd be over there every day for coffee just to get my day started with a grin.
I had to pick up this book because of the titles and the title essay was well worth the price! I was very pleased to know that I am not the only person who thinks the world is a weird and wonderful place! This is an easy read and insightful.
Fulghm as usual - excellent,readable and informative!
Written by the author of "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten". He states that it is a reflection of life drawn from his viewpoint. Then he adds that he has learned that what is true for him and is important to him is basically "common property".
Robert Fulgum has a writing style that I really enjoy. Fun and gives you and insight into life.
