Not the usual soppy, feel good tripe (don't know what some of the other reviewers where reading!), but a decent collection of thought nurturing gems about life and everything. It's peppered inventively throughout with a self-effacing humour, which is essential in these sorts of books which can be irritatingly sanctimonious at best or excruciatingly mawkish at their very worst. Some of his own observations and aphorisms are included too, so he's not just standing on the shoulders of the great people of letters which would be so easy to do and frankly a cop out. So, what's next?
