Overview

One day when best-selling author Gregory E. Lang and his daughter were driving around-she behind the wheel with her learner's permit-Lang asked himself, "How do I let go of my daughter before I am certain that she is ready for what she will face?" That's when it occurred to him that she needed more from him than directions for driving; she needed guidance for living.

In that moment, the idea for Life Maps was born. And so Lang sat down with his forty-odd years of road traveled behind him and began to write the things he had learned that he wanted to pass along to his daughter. Before long he had compiled hundreds-eventually more than five hundred-pithy bits of fatherly advice:

  • Learn the art of conversation
  • Laugh often, laugh with gusto
  • Make a party out of decorating the Christmas tree
  • Simple things - Important things.

It's often said that it's the little things that make life worth living. In truth, it's a thousand little things that add up to one big thing: a happy, fulfilling, treasured life. This timeless guidebook for living touches on hundreds of little things. None are earth-shaking in and of themselves, but taken as a whole they add up to a fulfilling way to live from day to day.

An excellent gift book for any age, Life Maps will appeal to anyone looking to smoothen-or avoid-the bumps in the road and to relish the best life has to offer.
