In 1991, H. Jackson Brown, Jr. published Life's Little Instruction Book™, which was originally written as a gift for his son, Adam, as he left home in 1990 to begin his freshman year in college. "I wanted to provide Adam with a road map of what I had learned about living a happy and rewarding life," said Brown. The observations were direct, simple, and as practical as an umbrella.
Life's Little Instruction Book™ was a publishing phenomenon. It sold more than six million copies in the United States and Canada. The hardcover and paperback editions were both in the number-one spot on the New York Times bestseller list at the same time. It has been published in twenty-nine countries and been on bestseller lists in England, Israel, Japan, Brazil, and elsewhere.
In the last few years, thousands of readers have shared with H. Jackson Brown suggestions and observations from their own parents and grandparents. Moreover, Adam has graduated from college and now works in an advertising agency. As Adam started this new phase of his life, his father again prepared a gift for his son of "suggestions on how to live a happy and rewarding life." Some came from Brown's own experience; others, which had been shared with him, he found to be especially meaningful. Like the first two volumes, Life's Little Instruction Book™, Volume III is a gentle reminder of the important things in life.
Since its debut in 1991, Life's Little Instruction Book™ has revolutionized the publishing industry. This little plaid book, which has been embraced the world over, has sold more than nine million copies, spent more than two years atop the New York Times bestseller list, and has been translated into 33 languages. Though originally written as a gift from a father to a son, its simple message has been enjoyed by men and women of all ages around the world.
