5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 stars5 out of 5 starsGreat Gift Book!
Posted by Spyneyes on 1/3/2002
This little booklet is chock-full of one or two line passages of advice worthy of anyone's consideration. You've no doubt heard a few of these common-sense gems while most will be new discoveries.

I highly recommend this book as a great gift for the young adult reaching a milestone in their lives or for anyone that could use a few good ideas that will truly help them live happier and more rewarding lives. No doubt about it!

Posted by D. Blankenship on 10/13/2007
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.

Posted by Anonymous on 10/19/1998
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.

Posted by Edwin Crawford on 6/30/2006
I had previously purchased this book several years ago. As a former high school teacher I shared the "One" line notes with my students. This sharing became a routine my students looked forward to see when I posted them. With that in mind, I purchased a copy for my granddaughter for a graduation present.
After this purchase, Amazon informed me of the book that contained the first three editions of Life's Little Instructions. I slso bought tha edition.
4 out of 5 stars4 out of 5 stars4 out of 5 stars4 out of 5 stars4 out of 5 starsDelightful and full of practical wisdom
Posted by John Chancellor on 6/30/2007
This is the second volume in a series. It is delightful, easy to read and full of practical wisdom. It can be read in one sitting. The suggestions(512) are short, one or two sentences and were written by Brown to his son. The gems of wisdom are what you typically think of as being handed down from generation to generation.

It should not be read an stuffed in the bookshelf. While we probably have heard or know most of these bits of wisdom, we do need to be reminded of the thoughts. So it is helpful to read them ever so often. The more you read them, the deeper your understanding and appreciation of these truths.

A few of my favorites:

Act with courtesy and fairness regardless of how others treat you. Don't let them determine your response.

Spend your time and energy creating, not critizing.

Keep your private thoughts private.

Treat your employees with the same respect you give your clients.

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

The book is entertaining and enlightening. Well worth reading a few times a year.
