Overview
Find the best -- in the world, in others, and in yourself. How do we cultivate our character? What can we do, which choices can we make, to ensure that we create lives full of value and morality? In his wise, wonderful book, Life's Greatest Lessons, Hal Urban presents twenty principles that serve as a foundation for building a life of which you can be proud. The lessons he shares are as deeply rooted in common sense as they are in compassion. The topics, gathered from Hal's experiences as a parent and an award-winning teacher of both children and adults, span a wide range of readily understood concepts, including attitudes about money, understanding the real meaning of success, and the importance of having fun. Whether you are searching for a long-overdue starting point for becoming the person you always hoped to be or seek another source of inspiration to affirm your choice to lead a praiseworthy life, Hal Urban's message of fundamental goodness will satisfy that need. Classic in its simplicity and enduring in its appeal, Life's Greatest Lessons helps us all rediscover that the desire to live a good life is timeless.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great foundation for further exploration  Jul 9, 2007
I found this book to be both inspirational and educational.
Inspirational : I found myself connecting to Urban's life story and was inspired to do several of the excercises he recommends. The book is very well written and requires alot of introspection after reading. For every lesson, I found myself reading, re-reading, and re-re-reading. I read this with a pen in hand and jotted down thoughts as I read. After re-reading my thoughts on each section, I started to think deeply of what matters in my life and was inspired to think of my actions, thoughts, beliefs, etc. in a different way.
Educational: A great aspect of this book is the way Urban injects the works of so many other authors into his own. I found myself writing down the names and titles of many of Urban's cited works. His use of other's ideas to further explain and strenghten his own motivated me to further my knowledge base on the subject. For an author to actively tell the reader to go and look for other's insight only proves to me the author's good intentions and credibility.
Overall - I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for some help on the road of life. Urban does a great job explaining his 20 lessons, and he does an even better job in making the reader want to think about his or her own goals and rules of life.
 
Good, simple book  Jan 15, 2007
I got this book as a present for my husband for Christmas. We always try to keep some positive reading around. He enjoyed it very much and has since passed it along to a friend. It's a very cost-effective but impactful gift and a simple, useful read.

Do I need to say more !!  May 2, 2006
This book get a 5 star rating from anyone that has reviewed it... do the math. I loved this book, I read many self help book because like many of us i'm looking for that edge that will take me over the top. This book is it. This is the mentor that i've never had.. the words that i needed to hear... this book will make a change... oh and check out his Positive words.. an other gold mine
 
This book changed my life, my way of thinking and more.  Mar 27, 2006
I know that phrase is used a lot, but I don't use it a lot. I can honestly say that about THIS book....and I read a lot of self-help books. Not because I'm "messed up", but because I LOVE to learn. If I can read a book that can help me be a better person, I will read it...and not just READ....I absorb it and put it into practice. This book did that for me. It even changed the relationship I'm in. We are very serious, but have been having some communication problems. This book caused ME to change so much that my partner also changed and now our relationship has never been better. It showed (or reminded me) what kind of person I want to be, HOW to be that person, what is important in life, how to relate better to the people in my life that matter.....and I could just go on and on, but I won't. I just wanted to say that I got it at our library and it made SUCH an impact on me that I came here and bought the book used so I can go back OFTEN and refer to things I want to constently remember. To me, it's a book that EVERY person should read. I'm giving it as gifts to my grandchildren and children for their birthdays. GREAT BOOK!!!
