Publisher's Summary

Fifteen years ago, Robert Fulghum published a simple credo that became the phenomenal #1 New York Times best seller All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. Now, seven million copies later, Fulghum returns to the book that was embraced around the world. He has written a new preface and twenty-five essays, which add even more potency to a common piece of wisdom: the most basic concepts of life bear its most important opportunities.Here Fulghum engages us with musings on life, death, love, pain, joy, sorrow and the best chicken-fried steak in the continental USA. The love story of Jean-Francois Pilatre and his hot air balloon reminds us to be unafraid to "fly" lessons hidden in the laundry pile...magical qualities found in a box of crayons. All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten is brimming with the very stuff of life and the significance found in the smallest details.In the years that have passed since the first publication of this book, Robert Fulghum has had some time to ponder, to reevaluate and to reconsider. Here are those fresh thoughts on classic topics, right alongside the wonderful new essays. Perhaps in today's more challenging world, these essays on life will resonate more deeply as listeners discover how universal insights can be found in ordinary events.

Absolutely Wonderful

I have never written a review before (have been an audible subscriber for over a year), however, I had to take the time to recommend this book to others. It is a compilation of wonderful stories that will make you laugh, smile, cry, cheer, and just be glad your alive. It is not over done, preachy, or syrupy. I listened to it on a recent trip and it made me reassess all that is good in my life. I guarantee the stories will be remembered for years.

Highly entertaining, touching, and inspirational

Not only is he a great story teller, he has lived an interesting, rich life. I found myself looking forward to the commute to and from work just so that I could listen to his book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has time to listen. It is easy to follow his stories and unlike some books, it translates beautifully to audio.
