"The original edition of All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten became an instant classic, dominating the New York Times Bestseller List for all of 1989 and much of 1990. This collection of essays was the second longest #1 bestseller in 23 years. The essays reflect the truth in everyday form—in the shoe repairman who leaves cookies in the shoes he can’t fix, in the homely Indian who becomes beautiful when he dances, in the small deaf boy who wants to rake Fulghum’s leaves. Fulghum writes with wit and wisdom about small lives with big meanings. As described in the San Francisco Chronicle, Fulghum’s stories about ordinary life ‘remind us that within simplicity lies the sublime.’"
