It seemed like Dr. Robbins was reaching to present the everyday events of his life (of all of ours, really) as if they were profound in some way. For example, the story about his failed attempt to write his favorite songs to a CD was hardly inspirational. The story about his young son's inability to correctly pronounce "Buzz Lightyear" was cute, but really didn't grab me by the lapels. And he stocked a pond with fish and they died because he didn't take care of them. Yes, he connects these every-day occurances to larger, important principals, but the connections felt forced and somewhat contrived.
See him in person: DEFINITELY! He's the best speaker you will ever hear.
Read his book: maybe. Just understand that the written form is not nearly as good as the real thing.
I do think that certain diverse communities aren't as covered in this book as much as others, but it's still fantastic!
PS. Universal design and user experience practitioners would also benefit from this book!
