What on Earth Have I Done?: Stories, Observations, and Affirmationsby Robert FulghumComment:

 "3.0 out of 5 stars
A Partial Return to Form for a Great Storyteller, March 31, 2011
John Hogan "John Hogan HoganHospitality" (Phoenix AZ USA)

Over the years, we really enjoyed many of Fulghum's works. He is an exceptional storyteller, and made everyday events and places special through his colorful wording and viewpoints, which were often from the perspective of innocent youth.

The past two works were a bit less enjoyable, but we should all realize it is not easy to continue to write any type of commentary on a continuing basis and have it all be what the audience looks for. One need only look at Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Jeffrey Archer and others to understand that.

As fan of Fulghum's wit and life observations, I was anticipating enjoying this book. Overall, the book is alright but not quite the same caliber as others. There is one chapter called "CONVERSATION LIFEBOATS" that is quite good and hits his high level of insight perfectly.

I titled this "A Partial Return to Form for a Great Storyteller" and I look forward to the full return and more great stories soon.

As always, comments and welcome and appreciated!
