From the Author
I wrote this book after my wife died. Her humor helped me get through the three difficult years of her terminal illness. Hundreds of people have told me how it helped them to not only deal with life-challenging issues but everyday trials and tribulations as well. It must have because the book is now in 24th printing and seventh language translation. (as of 02/01) For more, check out allenklein.com

I would love to see this book updated and adapted a bit to modern culture but despite its dated presentation of the information, I believe it is still very good information at its core.
You will chuckle as you read some of the stories, and will realize that taking challenges and problems less seriously doesn’t mean you don’t care about overcoming the challenges or solving the problems. Instead, it means that you open space in your mind so you can find effective and long-lasting solutions.
