Meet the Author

Jim Brickman
Jim Brickman
Though classically trained, pianist Jim Brickman prefers to play more pop-flavored, gently lyrical new age music. His unique compositions are emotional and structured, but not rigidly so. Brickman enrolled in the Cleveland Institute of Music in his late teens. The focus was on classical music, but Brickman could not escape the lure of mainstream music and at age 19 began writing commercial jingles. This led him to compose music for such major outfits the Gap, Isuzu, Sprint, and Kellogg's as well as with Jim Henson and Henson Associates.

    'Simple' yet 'Profound'

    I ordered this book because I'm a huge Jim Brickman fan and I adore his sense of humor. My mother 'stole' my copy, and I am going to order at least 6 more copies for my sisters, brother, and sons, because it contains some of the most simple, yet profound insights into our all-too-hectic lives. I read the book in one night, while listening to Jim's 'Simple Things' CD, and I found myself nodding in agreement, relating to, and empathizing with, all that he wrote. His delightful sense of humor radiates throughout the book, but his message was incredibly relevant and insightful. I highly recommend it for women and men of all ages.

    Simple reminder for complicated times

    A book very rarely holds my attention and I often never finish one that I start, but I found myself reading this book in my car on lunch breaks and I didn't want to put it down. It is not that the message is new or profound..it is a simple reminder of what we already know. The book leaves you feeling like you are not alone in your neurotic worries, your occasional self-centeredness and your tendency to over-dramatize everyday mishaps. It reminds you that you don't need to go looking for things to be happy about or to find pleasure in...there are things all around us, every moment to be thankful for, we just need to to remember them and notice them. Mr. Brickman writes the book as if he were sending a personal letter to a friend. It was so easy to read and I found myself smiling at his humor throughout the book. This one is a keeper.
