Reviews - What do customers think about Winsome Wisdom?

Highly recommended  Jan 10, 2007
His approach is varied and usually thought provoking. For a former member of the establishment his out spoken views on war and serving in the military came as a surprise.
 
Great Christmas Gift  Nov 26, 2006
I had already decided to give this wonderful book to both my father and my mother-in-law for Christmas, when my mother-in-law found it on my reading table after our Thanksgiving dinner. After reading the first several entries, she exclaimed "This is what you can get me for Christmas!"
