Review:

The Grace of Great Things is the second book in Robert Grudin's triptych of philosophical essays about the art of living. Here Grudin's focus is not so much on the mystery of where innovative genius comes from--though he has quite a bit to say about that knotty subject--as on the role that's played by large and small varieties of creativity in our everyday lives. Above all, he is determined to convince us that, even at the humblest level, creative labor is a key to happiness. --Richard Farr
