This copy Is more like a 'phamplet' and not so much a bound book. I do not even require reading glasss yet I seriously will never read this copy. Seriously, it's maybe an 8 point font.
If you want my copy, let me know. Sooooo frustrating and ridiculous.
This book is not just about child rearing - just about every topic in life is covered. Kahlil beliefs are much the same as mine.
This book has 26 prose poetry fables written in English, and published in 1923 by Alfred A. Knopf.
Highly in demand it is always being printed, and has been translated into 40 languages.
107 Pages long, it takes about 13 hours to read.
The Prophet's main character is named Almustafa, the setting is he has been away from home 12 years and he is about to broad a ship to take him home, when he is stopped by a group of people, and he discusses topics that have to do with the human condition.
Dealing with the rigors of love, marriage, children, giving, eating, drinking, work, joy, sorrow, houses, clothes, buying, selling, crime, punishment, laws, freedom, reason, passion, pain, friendship, talking, time, good, evil, prayer, self knowledge, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death.
I really like this book because reading it has enlightened me, even though it can be difficult to fully comprehend, this book is very thought provoking. I recommend this book to anyone interested in philosophy, poetry and classic literature.
with people that you just think may need to read it.

With a nice textured finish, the hardcover quality is excellent. It does not have a dust jacket but thats fine as the cover design is great. Well binded and neatly printed, the book does feel nice to see and hold. For size reference, I have placed the book on a 10 inch tablet.
Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow
Spelling mistakes and seems more like photocopied pages stuck together. Wish I’d paid the extra £2 for a tidy copy. Will be returning.
But it is not a story book, and can not be treated as one.
