This book is just as incomprehensible to me as the first one (In the Land of Second Chances) was, possibly more so. In many ways this book is little more than a retread of In the Land... except the "sermonettes" are slightly different. Instead of hope and faith, we have the difference between smart and stupid, and strong and weak. But the reasoning is the same: Let me prove to you why it makes more sense, from a rational perspective, to behave a smart way, as defined by the author, of course.

A man (angel?) tries to help a young boy in jail. His methods are sometimes thought =provoking. But I feel I was missing some things because I did not read the prequel.

I loved the relationship between the young character in jail and the main character. The questions he asked the young man, beginning with, 'Is it better to be smart or stupid?" and "How would you say you are doing so far?" made the book worth finishing. It may be that the rest of the book didn't really hold my interest since it wasn't the first in the series, but I am glad my friend, Susie, lent it to me.

Charming spiritual fable that poses these questions...Is is better to be smart or stupid---strong or weak? Hmmm...You could debate the ansswers aaround the kitchen table and have an interesting discussion.

This is a continuation of his first book ... In The Land of Second Chances. Very insightful how Mr. Moore solves the problems of the town. And in less than a week!! Very good read.

George brings back the characters we loved, and this time price is way too high for the ladies club to lose. Loved how author writes making the story lines funny and easy to read.

Sequel to "The Land of Second Chances" is another tale of spiritual mystery and humor in a town run by women, but saved by a man. Go figure.
