Read years ago that it was not the responsibility of parents to pave the road for their children, but to provide a road map. That's how I hoped he or she would use these mind and heart reflections.

  It literally changed ...

I picked up the book while staying in a Bed & Breakfast in the Napa Valley and began to read. It's little sayings were so simple, yet, meaningful. I had to find a copy. Glad I finnaly did!
  Full of nuggets of great advice

I received this as a gift from someone I do charity work with. At first I thought it was kind of hokey. But when you read this it makes great sense. Its short, bulleted advice. "Always flush the urinal with your elbow". Makes great sense once you reflect on it. "Send thank you notes promptly". I now do these things. Worthwhile reading.

There are literally dozens of these little books, or little books like this one around today. You can seem them on many a desk of offices across the country. Most of them are pretty good at best, and rather mundane at worse. This one though is quite a few notches above most of the pack. H. Jackson Brown Jr. has given us over 500 (511 to be exact), short bits of wisdom in the form of little one liners. I've read them all and to be frank, actually learned much from most of them and was reminded of a lot of things that have been pushed to the back of my mind over the years. These are little thoughts and zaps of wisdom that simply make your life more pleasing to live and most of them make you smile and feel a bit better. Little things like "floss your teeth everyday," sort of reminds me of my dad. Little things, yes, but don't all the little things all add up in our lives to make a whole? This is a great gift or a great buy for yourself. You will be richer for having read it.
  Great instructions for life

This is an easy to pick up and read for one minute or read the entire book. I love to use it as a graduation gift for my students. They say it gives them all the things I have been teaching them over the years in one compact little book.
  Screen saver version of this book is great!

I love the screen saver software version of this book. Having these thoughtful bits f wisdoms pop up regularly on my computer is a great way to keep them fresh in my mind. This way I actually remember to live by the instructions more. Everyone that walks by my computer loves it too! I also like that I can set it to different languages to brush up on my linguist abilities too.
