In this heartfelt and generous book, author Daniel Gottlieb shares life lessons taught to him by his eight-year-old grandson, Sam. Readers were first introduced to Sam in Letters to Sam—which has been translated into 15 languages, with more than 50,000 copies sold in the U.S. Now, The Wisdom of Sam continues the extraordinary story of the interaction between a grandfather who is quadriplegic and a grandson who is autistic as they share their discoveries about empathy, compassion, courage, happiness, and the power of laughter. Sam’s uncommon perspective on the world—and the remarkable way he expresses himself—are the seeds of inspiration for his grandfather. And the emotional connection between Daniel Gottlieb and his grandson provide a springboard for wonderful moments of reflection, understanding, and humor. Sam’s candid observations not only teach us what we’ve forgotten but they also show us how to look at the world through a different lens. Just as Sam’s grandfather has found his world view forever changed by the wisdom of his grandson, readers of The Wisdom of Sam will discover unforgettable messages of acceptance, hope, love, and gratitude.

If you want to read Ralph Waldo Emerson but find his 19th-century prose too daunting, help is here . . . In Everyday Emerson, bestselling author Sam Torode (The Dirty Parts of the Bible: A Novel) rephrases the works of Ralph Waldo Emerson in contemporary language. The goal is to make Emerson's wisdom applicable to our daily lives. Transcendentalism isn't a relic of the past-it's a way of thinking and seeing the world that's still valid and vital. This book covers Emerson's pathbreaking early lectures, featuring full paraphrases of "The American Scholar," "The Divinity School Address," "The Transcendentalist," and more. It also includes excerpts adapted from Emerson's speeches advocating for social reform, the abolition of slavery, and women's rights. Sam Torode's introduction and notes provide an overview of Emerson's life and major themes, and explore the relevance of his philosophy today. Everyday Emerson can be read on its own, or as an aid to studying the original works.

Inspired Spiritual wisdom from a cat named Sam-Moo. This fun filled and wise book is inspired by my cat Sam-Moo who died in 2010. In the last 10 days of his life I began to pay greater attention to him. He seemed to begin to whisper inspiration and wisdom to me in those last days. As I began to write it down I realized that he surely did have wisdom and inspiration to share. His overall message was simple, we as humans just need to spend more time "being than doing" and just "love" and "chill out." To him it was really very simple. It is a profound message of inspired wisdom and humor about how to live each day simply and in the moment. Zen kitty wisdom for everyday living.

In The Wisdom of the Shire, Noble Smith sheds a light on the life-changing ideas tucked away inside the classic works of J. R. R. Tolkien and his most beloved creation—the stouthearted Hobbits. How can simple pleasures such as gardening, taking long walks, and eating delicious meals with friends make you significantly happier? Why is the act of giving presents on your birthday instead of getting them such a revolutionary idea? What should you do when dealing with the Gollum in your life? And how can we carry the burden of our own "magic ring of power" without becoming devoured by it? The Wisdom of the Shire holds the answers to these and more of life's essential questions.
