Product description


" A HEALTHY ANTIDOTE TO THE HORRORS THAT PUMMEL US IN THIS DICEY AGE." -- Baltimore" Sun "" It is interesting how much of it applies not only to individuals, grown or small, but even to nations." -- New York" Daily News "" Within simplicity lies the sublime." -- "San Francisco Chronicle "" As universal as fresh air and invigorating as the fragrance of a Douglas fir." "-- Los Angeles Times"

From the Back Cover

When asked what he does, Robert Fulghum usually replies that he is a philosopher, and explains that what he likes to do is to think about everyday things and then to express what he thinks by writing, speaking or painting.
'All I Really Need To Know' is a collection of his favourite observations, written over the years, that reveal simple truths about small lives with big meanings. Like the things he learned in the sandpit at Sunday School: share everything; play fair; don't hit people; put things back where you found them; clean up your own mess; say you're sorry when you hurt somebody, and so on.
His uncommon thoughts on common things hold true, clear and firm however complicated or sophisticated the situation – and they are bound to raise the spirits and to warm the heart.

A number one best-seller in the United States, 'All I Really Need To know' has established itself as a modern classic. Written with wit and insight that is striking in its freshness and simplicity, it cannot fail to move everyone who reads it – leaving them wiser, gentler and feeling good.

"A treasure box."
