I did not receive, The Little Red Book of Wisdom, by Mark DeMoss; nor have I received any follow-up information as to why BookSneeze has not sent me a copy (I requested one in June).
A friend of mine happened to have access to a copy, and brought it to me to have a look at it. Yes, the book is red. What really caught my eye was the size of the book: small and under 200 pages.
It was a quick book to read, with many insightful stories, filled with wisdom. Once you begin to read it, it’s hard to put down. It’s filled with wonderful life lessons that the author has learned over many years. I found that the author’s life lessons are similar to everyone else’s life lessons, so there isn’t really anything new to learn. The book is divided into two areas – professional life and personal life – and a variety of topics are covered. I enjoyed how DeMoss covered ‘finding focus’, ‘showing appreciation’, and ‘learning from those more experienced in life. However, a book to tell me to stay focused on my dreams, or to remind me not to lie, or to live my life to the fullest is not required.
“Knowledge has right answers; wisdom has the right questions.”
I recommend this book, especially for older teenagers, or to those heading off to higher learning. Great for a gift too. To be more specific, I can’t say that it is not a book worth reading; simply put, it is a helpful reminder to all to be more practical and more inter-personal.
