I loved this book from page's very rich with words...and possesses a wealth of deeply honest thoughts. When I write, I write what I call, "human documents" because I want to explore the things that make people tick, the "how come" of their actions. "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" is an elegant, well written, and magical human document.

Anne Hawn Smith A lot of people don't like this book, but when I find someone who loves it, I feel like I have met a kindred spirit.

Laura J. W. Waving hello to a kindred spirit!

Anne Hawn Smith Likewise!
