Good advice on character, which, after all, is more important than anything else. The section on Honesty is so true and so concise, no one can argue with it. Mr. Leaf lays out exactly what happens to those who are not honest, fair, strong or wise. No matter what your age, this book gives clarity on the most important aspects of life. I love it. I wish Mr. Leaf's other gem, Manners Can Be Fun, would come back into print asap.
If you have children, are a teacher, or just want to polish your own manners, take a look at a book that got it right in the 1950s. Highly recommended.
On the positive side, the messages about honesty and fairness were good ones, and probably received better from a book than from a parent.
