A book of essays with an optimistic look at life from the man who brought the world, "Use All the Crayons."

Some of them are humorous; some are poignant, and some are irreverent, but all have the author's knack for enjoying life in all its many colors.

The section on food and wine especially the "Rebuild Napa/Guzzle Wine" was especially fun reading because the author's take on wine echoes mine. Quoting from the essay:
"As he poured till half of the bottle was gone, he told us about the clever nuances within each sip, the oaky textures, the piquant aftertaste.
'What you're about to savor is the result of years of patient wine-making genius...Enjoy!'
"I sipped..
"Yup, it is wine all right!"
(Yeah, I feel the same way about wine, but single malt whisky...well, that's different, but I digress.)
A few minor typos and/or errors, but not one What-the-Tuck trends that this reader noticed (how refreshing!).

Throughout there are other gems to consider, gems to laugh at or with, and everything in between, some of which most of us haven't even thought.

The book itself is not very long, and it could be read in a sitting or two, but this reader preferred to savor them....kinda like wine!
