Publishers Description

H. Jackson Brown, Jr. originally wrote Life's Little Instruction Book, as a gift for his son who was leaving home to begin his freshman year in college. Brown says, "I read years ago that it was not the responsibility of parents to pave the road for their children but to provide a road map, and I wanted to provide him with what I had learned about living a happy and rewarding life." Life's Little Instruction Book, is a guidebook that gently points the way to happiness and fulfillment. The observations are direct, simple, and as practical as an umbrella.

"But it's not just for young people," says Brown. "Most of us already know how to live a successful and purposeful life. We know we should be more understanding and thoughtful, more responsible, courageous and appreciative. It's just that we sometimes need reminding." Life's Little Instruction Book, is that reminder, as well as the perfect gift for a relative or a friend who needs encouragement at any time of the year.

  • Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen every day.
  • Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.
  • Think big thoughts, but relish small pleasures.
  • Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks softly.
  • Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all they have.
  • Be kinder than necessary.
  • Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
  • Commit yourself to constant self-improvement.
  • Don't major in minor things.
  • Never cut what can be untied.

Since its debut in 1991, Life's Little Instruction Book, has revolutionized the publishing industry. This little plaid book, which has been embraced the world over, has sold more than nine million copies, spent more than two years atop the New York Times bestseller list, and has been translated into 33 languages. Though originally written as a gift from a father to a son, its simple message has been enjoyed by men and women of all ages around the world.

Life's Little Instruction book  Jan 8, 2009
Life's Little Instruction Book: 511 Suggestions, Observations, and Reminders on How to Live a Happy and Rewarding Life
This is a great book full of common sense homilies applicable to everyday life. If you have any children it is a must have for each and every one. It even appeals to adults to remind them of the lessons they learned from their parents and some times forget with the passage of time. Makes for a wonderful refresher on how to live the good life as well as how to interact with your fellow man. Highly recommended!
Generally good except for one...  Oct 26, 2008
This is an entertaining enough book with a mix of cheesy sentiments, some cliches but overall good messages to live by,...except for No. 433: "Have a friend who owns a truck." Seems a bit shallow and deceptive to befriend someone solely for times when you need to move or haul something away. Ever hear of U-Haul or Ryder?
Loved for Years  Dec 4, 2007
I was first given this little book by the CEO of our company. I have given it away and replaced it numerous times. It is worth rereading annually as it helps us to remember all the things we already know - like "Keep Secrets, Remember People's Names, Don't Expect Money to Bring You Happiness and Never Eat the Last Cookie".

A real winner!
Good things come in small packages!!  Nov 24, 2007
I ordered six of these as graduation presents for a group of high school students. Regardless of whether you are 17 or 70, though, this pithy collection of wisdom resonates and offers sound and inspiring insights for us all. The sayings range from Big Picture ("Don't expect life to be fair ..") to the micro (" Don't leave your car keys in the ignition.")

Not only a great and inexpensive gift book or stocking-stuffer, but a treat to dip into again and again!
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.
