Good for the soul I am totally digging this book so far It s not like a huge long book that tells a story or anything, kind of like different sayings or snippets that are different on each page but each has its own message which is pretty neat. The Man Who First Brought Love To The Classroom Offers A Postgraduate Course For People In Every Kind Of Relationship And For Those Who Yearn For Love In Powerful Short Takes, Leo Buscaglia Turns The Light Of His Wisdom On Every Facet Of The Priceless Jewel Of Love And Discusses Love That Is Than A Comfort Zone Creating An Us Without Destroying The Me The Value Of Differences, And So Much These Challenging Lessons In Loving Will Enrich Your Life For As Long As You Live. Slightly cheesy but pretty much what you d expect from a book with this title I have been revisiting the ideas presented in a Love and Morality Seminar I took in college I think they used both this author s works and C.S Lewis as reference material It s very interesting.

Love it Leo Buscaglia is a special writer, he transmits his love remarkably in this book I bought this book just because the title seems like the very me, however it is so much better than expected I think I 2017. . .
