Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lay philosopher Fulghum offers advice in the same easygoing mode as All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten et al.; a Literary Guild selection and a 20-week PW bestseller in cloth. Author tour.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal

The author of the bestselling All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten ( LJ 10/1/88) and It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It ( LJ 10/1/88) has put together another volume of bite-sized inspirational whimsies. Drawn from his experiences as a child, as a preacher, and from everyday life, Fulghum's eye-opening (although never moralistic or preachy) anecdotes are written in a comfortable and unpretentious style, giving one the homey feeling of sitting on grandpa's porch on a lazy Sunday afternoon sipping iced tea. Some of the essays are reminiscent of Garrison Keillor, flavored with a bit of Norman Vincent Peale. In any case, it is worth taking the time to appreciate simple pleasures and human kindness in today's hectic and stress-filled world. Fulghum's book is one way to get started. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/1/91.

I'd say: buy it, and have a good trip!

All of the little stories are quite enlightening, and the metaphoric ideas Mr. Fulghum introduces are intrigueing in the extreme.

After a great many funny and hearthwarming books, Fulghum strikes back again with Uh-Oh. Fulghum style again. It's simple: if you hate this style, you hate this book. If you love it -like I do- you'll love this book. Memories and musings of an every-day-life-philosopher who does not take things for granted. Maybe you never thought about fireflies or the true meaning of cinderella fairytales, but it's a great journey to travel with one who does. It takes you to roads you've never been before. I'd say: buy it, and have a good trip!

First, let me say that I read this book in one day, which is a feat in itself with my short attention span. And when I was finished, I honestly felt sad that it was over. Second, I'm not one to take the time to review books online, but this is one that is worthy of all the praise I can give it. This book is fantastic. It's the best book I've read in a long while. One moment, Fulghum is making you ponder some very deep subjects, and the next, he's got you laughing those really good, healthy belly laughs that are so few and far between. His insight on so many ordinary subjects is astounding. You will find yourself relating to some of the stories and touched or delighted by the others. My mother encouraged me to read this, and I've encouraged everyone I know to read it. Get this book. It's really worth the read.

I haven't read any Fulghum since high school (All I Really Need to Know . . .), but saw this in the bookstore, and thought it would be a fun read.
It was. But it was also a great read. At different points, Fulghum had me laughing out loud and crying. I loved every word.
And if you do read this book (which I highly recommend--it'll be the best 5 hours of your life), please do take his advice, and hiccup in a very public place--it's hysterical!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Though not nearly as terrific as his KINDERGARTEN book, Uh-Oh is a great read. Fullugham has some unique perspectives. This is a terrific book that can be savored a few pages at a time. The included essays are often funny, sometimes touching, and always enjoyable. The way the authour looks at the commonplace, and then bestows it with a sense of wonder has brought me back to Mr. Fullgham's books on a number of occassions. Read one and you'll be hooked.

This book is great simply because it fully illustrates many quirks of the human spirit. All of the little stories are quite enlightening, and the metaphoric ideas Mr. Fulghum introduces are intrigueing in the extreme.

Much like the late Charles Kuralt, RF shows us what is right in America by going deep into the heartland, talking about everyday things and making them seem extraordinary. Fulghum, a Unitarian minister, reasons that most people are good at heart and his writings reflect his gentle ways and his comprehensive love of humanity. I could hear him speak for hours and hours.

Amazing...I didn't want it to end. It opened a new fronteer of book reading in my life. It changed me. This man, Fulghum, packs so much emotion into his words. How I wish I could live like him, or at least write like him. Definintely inspritional and touching and funny. I can't say it enough! Read it! Nothing out there compares to Fulghum's sensitivity about everything in life. I don't know how to say it any other way. If I had even half as much truth and insight as this author has, I would be happy.

I rated this book just under five stars because I have not read it completely since I received a week or so ago along with several other of his books. However I read them many years ago and Robert Fulghum cannot write a book that could rate less than four stars and I probably should have rated him at five stars! His books saved me by helping me to understand many years ago, when I was going through a tough time, that life is to be experienced and not to be judged by the bias we develop as we age. His down to earth commentary on what is only obvious to him is uplifting and the subtle humor makes life a great experience.
