Reviews - What do customers think about The Wisdom of Yawdy Rum?

A must-read  Apr 28, 2007
The Wisdom of Yawdy Rum is a nice read! The plot was intriguing and I finished reading the book within three days. I enjoyed reading about the rich history of New Orleans and loved how music and jazz were integrated into the plot. As a former musician, I liked how author Mike Lane showed great creativity by including the music symbols with Yawdy's advice at the end. Curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and enjoy this book!
A truly satisfying read.  Mar 4, 2007
Written by successful marketing executive Michael Lane, The Wisdom of Yawdy Rum is a memoir-style novel following the path of the author's fictional alter ego, an overworked businessman who suddenly finds himself amid a workplace flare-up that could spell the beginning of the end. His frequent business trips take him far from his wife and three children, one of whom is autistic with special needs. Just when his life seems bleakest, he forms a friendship with an old jazz musician and learns about seven basic principles, which help him come to a turning point to positively change his life. Set in New Orleans prior to and during Hurricane Katrina, The Wisdom of Yawdy Rum combines the candid tone of a memoir, the perplexity of real-life dilemmas, and the optimism of the resilient human spirit to create a truly satisfying read.
The Wisdom Of Yawdy Rum  Feb 27, 2007
Micheal Lanes definitive wisdom will compel readers to rush to libraries and bookstores, where they can dive directly into the writers' works. Within this book of keys to our lives, readers will find not only strength of talent but also strength of character; they will find hours of enlightenment, and of pleasure.

It is enduring and full of life.
I could smell the beignets  Feb 21, 2007
I read this book in one day as it touched me in many ways. I have worked in the corporate world that Mike describes and have come through similar challenges. I used some of Yawdy Rum's secrets and am better for it.

I've been to New Orleans. I could see the places described in the book. I could smell the beignets at Cafe Du Monde through Mr. Lane's description. I could see Preservation Hall. Those places are still there, and you can be there without the travel. This book will take you there.
Compelling and inspiring...a great read!  Jan 26, 2007
What a great book! I quickly got caught up in the story of the businessman and the character of Yawdy Rum and couldn't wait to see where the friendship would take them next.

The author's description of New Orleans both before, during and after the hurricane made me feel like I was in the book. I could almost taste the food and hear the music.

The story felt very authentic to me. The challenges that the main character faces at work happen in real life every day, and the way he struggles to balance family and work is something most people relate to in one way or another.

I was very pleased with the wisdom, or life lessons that he shared, as well. They're very down-to-earth, doable ideas that could be used in a variety of situations. Simple concepts that can translate into big results. Just what we all need!
