    more from this reviewer

    Rediscover the pearls of wisdom your Mom and Dad shared with you.

    This is a well written book of "common sense." You will have heard much of this information before but not shared in Hal Urban's down home style. Hal uses down to earth language and this book is very readable for all levels. This is a great book to give to a young person going into high school and getting ready to graduate from high school.

    Hal generously uses quality quotes from famous and not so famous people to demonstrate his points. I personally enjoyed and appreciated this element of his book.

    Read this book, discover and rediscover many pearls of wisdom from "Life's Greatest Lessons."

    Enjoyed every lesson

    After reading what the author went through and finding the courage to stay positive really moved me. I was able to relate to what he went through.

    You will enjoy and learn from this book

    At the same time this book is instructive, it is also practical and inspiring. The lessons, experiences and other comments are presented in such a manner that their meaning is unquestionable. Their importance is revealed in a very natural and understandable manner. Many times, knowing facts and having culture is not enough. Putting them into practice is all that should matter and where the real difference is. This attitude is responsible for the effective changes people may need or desire to add to their living. I do believe that those who are grown up, as well as the teenagers, should benefit substantially from reading this book.
