Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The author's missionary spirit glows even brighter in his fourth book than in its bestselling predecessors All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten et al. In this collection of "second thoughts from a secret life," he uses musings about ironing a shirt, conducting the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth and selling school chocolate to emphasize the give and take, the unpredictability of the well-lived life. What Fulghum says of Einstein could well apply to himself: "Ambiguity remains at the end of the equation of his best thinking." If a chapter on the consumption of urine by certain cultures is distasteful, Fulghum's ruminations nevertheless make zesty entertainment. His many fans will enjoy his latest contribution and accept his invitation to join him for singing and storytelling on the "22 Cities, 22 Causes, One Good Reason Tour" he'll be making from September through November to benefit Literacy Volunteers, Special Olympics, Habitat for Humanity and other causes.

From School Library Journal

YA-Fulghum shares some of his insights with readers. They include episodic, kaleidoscopic mental explorations of events observed or imagined. YAs may be surprised at the commonalities between one adult male's perspectives and their own. Points to ponder abound. Whether read straight through or dipped into for a couple of minutes, beginning on almost any page, this engaging narrative offers a break from the daily grind.

It's nice to know a minister can feel that way just as much as a 'normal' person can!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really liked Fulghum's casual, laid-back style of writing. "Maybe (Maybe Not)" was a very easy, fun, quick read. He's very optimistic and upbeat and tries to convey his outlook on life to his audience. He's got a lot of great thoughts from totally different areas of life. He only spends a couple of pages on one topic and moves on to something completely different. He's got a really good sense of humor and unlike most self-help type of books, he's not preachy in the least bit. Really enjoyable and highly recommended!

Robert Fulghum is the master of telling complex stories in a simple, down-home manner. As such, I think I'd be paying him tribute most effectively if I kept this review simple. Suffice to say, if you've read and enjoyed other books by Mr. Fulghum, you'll definitely enjoy this one. By all means, read it. Read it more than once! You won't regret it!

A nice light read. I didn't always agree with his thoughts, but I usually did. Books like this always make me want to write my own book. I read it and think, "Hey - maybe someone would want to read my opinions and observations too!" Clean, and family friendly.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on October 1, 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The title essay of this work' Maybe' which pays tribute to the fundamental Uncertainty of life sets the tone for these enjoyable small personal essays. Fulghum is a thinking person and likes to think a lot about his everyday life, and in many of these essays about the secret things of everyday life. But he also shows a deep appreciation of other people, and this is one of the finest elements of this book. Whether he is speaking about the young black woman who helped his parents in their household and educated him in another way of thinking about life, or about those he has met in his various travels he has an openness and generosity to other people. In considering subjects like Envy and his own attempted suicide he reveals his own vulnerabilities and seems thereby to be honestly confessing to the reader. While I suspect he hasn't laid it all on the line he has here presented the reader with a picture of himself in his world most often amusing and interesting.

This is one of the best books I have read in the last months! Many daily situations that you have with yourself are present. May be or may be not you will love it, but I am sure you will ever remeber many funny situations in your real life. Try it. It is cheap, easy for reading, good for our spiritual side...

If you like Robert Fulghum's other books you'll really enjoy this book. If you haven't read Robert try his first best seller 'All I needed to know I learned in Kindergarden' It's his best work and will give you an idea of how enjoyable this guy's views and stories on life are to read.

Enjoy his style of writing. Good little stories like a parable with a sense of humor and modern flair everyone can relate to.
