After my husband died I needed help to get back into life after healing and grieving. I carried this book around with me veryday for a year and would read a bit a day. Leo was so honest about life...but love is what keeps you going. This book helped me enjoy life again and to love again. In fact I gave a new copy to my sister who just lost her husband. I hope it helps her......I want her to have joy in her life again after she goes through the steps.

Leo's heart was big enough to encompass the world. He taught people how to hug freely and express their love in a world that was starving for his message, just as Jeshua did 2000 years ago. There aren't enough words, not enough stars...I agree, to give his books which teach us how to live life to the very fullest. He walked his talk, and his lectures always ended in a giant hug-fest. He made sure he hugged everyone and anyone who wanted one. This world needs more of him, and Leo, we'll never forget you!!

What is the experience of being a human being? In order to make sense of all the chaos that is life, Leo Buscaglia deliciously teaches us to embrace all that changes. Like the title of his book, being a human being is all about living, loving and learning. So if we find we have a lot of love in our hearts, we can love our way through all the chaotic changes and also become fully aware of ALL that is human which is to ultimately realize the "Yes" of life and the "No" of death are a union of love, hope and faith in which all eternity is born.

We are here to live a life with purpose, to learn to love and transcend all that seems to be obstacles in our paths. Buscaglia¿s contribution to the world is superb. This book is truly a gem full of inspiration that will guide you to remember the loving being you really are.

I cannot put this book down. You start, you finish and you start all over again. Everytime you read it, you find yourself applying new situations happening in ur life to what Leo's saying. This man was amazing!

Sometimes, one finds a book which lends itself to the reader most intimately, burrowing into the reader's psyche, implementing itself wholly into one's lifestyle... For the modern soul, Living, Loving & Learning by Leo F. Buscaglia is the utlimate get-away. This is because it doesn't take you away, it brings you back - back to the fundememtals of life. Leo takes the readers through several of his speeches and introduces them to topics worth thinking about, such as education "If you aren't excited about seeing freshed faced kids every day, get the hell out of education" - life "You have to live it" - love "I can't define love, I can only live it" and the art of being fully human. He is able to take the readers of a journey of self-discovery. The first time I heard of Leo Buscaglia, I was sixteen and had been handed a photocopy of the speech "Where the Light Is" in my College Prep English class, with five questions at the bottom. (Thank you Ms. Knight, thank you.) Later, I spied the book sitting in the passenger seat of another teacher's car in the parking lot at my school. Yes, I filched it. (Thank you, Mr. Adamski, you'll never know how much I appreciate this book.) I have never regretted it. Since that I had read and re-read this book to the point of near exhaustion. I tried to lend it out once, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. This book has changed my life, changed me, changed everything about the way I see and percieve the world. Thank you, Dr. Buscaglia, wherever you are, for this gem of knowledge and this rare gift of insight and compassion.

This is the most touching book I've ever read.The sun seems brighter than usual and even pain feels good. 'The day you're born you're given the whole world as your birthday present.' I asked myself why nobody ever told me that and why I never thought it in that way! It's so right and so true. I really should have found this book earlier! It is the first thing nobody should miss. JUST READ IT!!!

Living, loving, and learning is my favorite book ever (I own 3 copies!). When I find myself in a negative attitude I can always turn to Buscaglia for a lift in spirits. His philosophy is not that of carpe diem, but more of looking at the positives of every experience. This is by far the best book of his (mainly because he didn't write it, its solely his lectures transcribed into a book...and he is an amazingly good lecturer). The fact that the book is composed of lectures might be its down side as well. After having given the book to most of my friends, the only negative comments I have heard have been that the book is repetitive. However, I find this not to be the case. A MUST HAVE.

for a number of years this book was made required reading in a graduate course I taught in sex education for teachers. It should be read by anyone involved with other people.
