(Book #49) Robert Fulghum - All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten

This book, by Robert Fulghum, while including the titular list of wisdom, contained a slew of thoughts, stories and passed-along bits of knowledge. While the "All I Really Need to Know..." piece was cute and concise, the real wisdom lied within the seemingly random tapestry of writings contained within this book. There were many "blips" (a word I like to use to describe writing of this length) and none of them were longer than 5 pages, making it a quick but meaningful read; however I would probably not read Fulghum's books so fast again, or even chronologically, as it doesn't serve the medium appropriately. The content was all over the board, but through the writing you got an idea of one man's perspective of life, philosophy and humanity. The tone was not condescending or preachy and presented everything in a take-it-or-leave-it sort of way, that made the writing easy to chew, swallow and digest.
