Robert Fulghum's previous books, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It, Uh-Oh, Maybe (Maybe Not), and From Beginning to End have struck a chord with readers everywhere, making him one of the bestselling authors of our time. There are currently more than 14 million copies of these books in print in 27 languages and 93 countries.

In his third book, Uh-Oh, he shared some short and somewhat unconventional love stories from his own experiences and casually suggested that if readers had their own tales to tell, he would love to hear them. To his surprise his mailbox was soon stuffed with thousands of real-life love stories sent to him by his devoted fans. True Love is the result of the incredible response he received. These stories, especially chosen by Fulghum to reflect the many faces of love, are amusing, sentimental, and sometimes gritty, and bound to touch the hearts of all.

There's the story of a woman who marries her mother's high school flame, a man who learns that "old love" and new pajamas are a dangerous mix, a man who miraculously reunites with his first love (after 20 years of separation) on an L.A. freeway, a husband's love for his wife after her disabling stroke, a 14-year-old's philosophy of looking for love on the boardwalk, and a smile shared at a stoplight. With True Love, Robert Fulghum proves that anything and everything is possible in love. He has once again found a way to speak to the heart and soul of his readers.

Robert Fulghum was born in Waco, Tex. in 1937. He attended the University of Colorado and obtained a degree in history and philosophy from Baylor University. He also spent some time at a Zen Buddhist monastery in Japan. Fulghum's ideas about how to make life better and appreciate its simple joys inspired him to write the bestselling All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. Several other successful books authored by Fulghum have followed, such as It Was On Fire When I Lay Down On It, Maybe (Maybe Not), Uh-Oh: Some Observations From Both Sides of the Refrigerator Door, From Beginning to End, and True Love. Fulghum has held some rather interesting jobs; he has worked as a ditchdigger, a singing cowboy and rodeo performer, a counselor to mental patients, and a folk music teacher, among other things.
