Synopsis

Learn, laugh, live-and do it all through parables. Perhaps the world's second-worst crime is boredom; the first is being a bore. A Year of Learning, Laughter, and Life is a one-of-a-kind collection of parables designed to entertain and enlighten anyone with a thirst for knowledge, wisdom, and self-improvement. These 365 delightfully didactic anecdotes-one for each day of the year-provide invaluable insight into issues such as leadership, children and family, money and politics, lateral thinking, spirituality, and much more. Each parable contains a meaningful message that will empower you in different facets of your life and is paired with a relevant quote from some of the world's greatest thinkers, including Albert Einstein, Helen Keller, Nelson Mandela, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ludwig von Mises, Jiddu Krishnamurti, John F. Kennedy, and hundreds more. This unique collection will stimulate your mind, heart, and spirit, and even make you laugh out loud. These uplifting, encouraging, and fun stories will stick with you long after you've read them. They also make for great additions to presentations, speeches, and lectures and can be used to enrich discussions around the dinner table, water cooler, or anywhere else thoughtful conversation occurs. The stories are lighthearted, uplifting, and inventive in their approach to deep truths.
