Living, Loving, Learning Jun 12, 2008
I have not only read this book myself, but have purchased it for many of my friends that have faced difficult times in their lives. Dr. Leo Buscaglia was wonderful as a Professor at USC, and his books carry forward the legacy of exactly what this title says: Living, Loving, Learning. It can be read many times over, and something new sets into the mind of understanding of who we are, what we are, and how we can have a happy life in all circumstances.
One Size Doesn't Fit All Apr 24, 2008
I'm glad people like Leo Buscaglia. Really, I am. If he helps people, fantastic. However, after receiving the book as a gift, I felt smothered by his "love talk", sounding for all the world like a medicated flower child. Considering that his ideas coalesced in the 60's, this may not be far from the truth. The book is a bit like mind control, and I'm sure his speaking presence was compelling. However, I think optimism is best tempered by reality and concrete steps, rather than this unedited exhortation to "love". A simplistic order to love is not going to work for most people. Love must be tempered with reason, intellect, responsibility, and experience. Life is a battlefield, and we are the soldiers. Choose a side and keep your eye on your enemy.
Amazing!! Feb 27, 2008
This book is incredible and I believe everyone should own a copy. If I had enough money I'd buy it for the entire world. Very simple, down-to-earth, and humane reading. Leo Buscaglia represents every individual in this heart warming lectures book!
My very favorite non-fiction book. Feb 13, 2008
This is a collection of Leo Buscaglia speeches all bundled up under one cover! I wouldn't trade this book for almost anything. Leo had the most extraordinary outlook on life and people and I miss having him in the world.
One of the best books I've ever read... Dec 13, 2007
This book was excellent. It really showed me what a passionate life could be...Leo reminds us that life is for the living, and that we need to make the most of every minute of it. He also reminds us that fundamentally we are unique and lovable creatures, God made no mistakes when he made any of us. Wonderful book with a positive impact.
