    I loved this book

    I enojoyed this book because it helped me realize the beauty in the most simple things in life. It inspired me and was very life-chaning. Robert Fulghum wrote the book as if he was a father, or a friend, but most importantly a human with feelings. And though sometimes I disagreed with him, I understand his point of view which is great for a reader to do. I have quoted him on occasion. I thought the book should be pocket size, just to remind us of things like supporting lemonade stands when were all out of wack. I would love for my mom to say: WHY DID YOU DO THAT? YOU KNOW WHAT GO READ ROBERT FULGHUM RIGHT NOW! AND TELL ME WHAT YOU LEARNED.

    Great insight with warmth and humor -- splendid

    I have read this little book in its entirety and in bits and pieces for more than fifteen years, sometimes on a daily basis. It never fails to remind me of the wonder of just simply living.

    Wonderful!

    For a first time reader, this book was magnificent -- the very first book that I read 'from beginning to end'... Each section was simply nice.
