Anyone who loves life, animals, or the Earth we live on owes it to himself or herself to read this book. Fair warning should be given, though. You won't make it through the first few pieces without a box of tissues, and just when you think your emotions have peaked, you'll surprise yourself with a roaring belly-laugh when you read the first of the Basset Hound Chronicles. It is no wonder that the reading of "How Could You?" - the most-published animal-related essay in the world - by radio DJs has literally stopped traffic.
It is impossible to read "Pieces of my Heart" without picking up a pen to write a letter to an editor, donating money to an animal rescue group, or hugging your own dog or kitty. If I could only buy one book to read the rest of my life, it would be this one.
For anyone who loves animals and for those of us who want to soften a few hearts...the book is a MUST BUY / MUST READ / MUST SHARE kind of thing. My rating for "Pieces of My Heart"??? A Million Stars and Diamonds, too. It is a timeless testment for the kindess of heart and generousity of spirit of humans and animals alike.
Jim Willis takes one on an incredible journey into the hearts of animals. I laughed and cried, and was completely glued to each page of the book. I found myself touched with compassion, and more love for animals and mankind then I ever thought possible!!
Jim Willis gives more wisdom in this powerful Master Piece about Life of both humans and animals then can be explained. I shall buy extra copies of this to share with our school library, as well as my friends. THIS BOOK WILL SELL OUT QUICKLY. I am proud to have one of the first printings. Thank goodness for second printings.
