really liked it
bookshelves: thought-provoking

This is Fulghum's second book, following closely on the heels of his first, a bestseller. In fact, at the same time that Everything I need to Know was #1 on at least one best seller list, It Was on Fire was #2. This was the first in the list’s history that the same author had the #1 and #2 books on it at once.

Like his first, this is a collection of heartwarming essays, full of homespun wisdom and thoughtful reflections on life and living. It is a wonderful book to read over a Thanksgiving or Christmas break, when one's thoughts almost naturally turn to life's blessings. As with his first book, I found it impossible to read without pen in hand to take notes and underline insightful passages.
