A life well lived comes from listening to the advice of others. But with so many competing voices, where do you look? When a student wants to remember the most important parts of a text in school, he highlights them in yellow. Those highlighted words are the ones that must be reviewed carefully to understand the subject and pass the test.H. Jackson Brown, Jr., with sales of more than 27 million books in the past decade, and Rochelle Pennington have highlighted the essential and best quotations and stories that point to an understanding of the elements that are key to a life well lived: kindness, attitude, generosity, character, simple pleasures, and dreams. From the wealth of their study comes a short course in living wisely and choosing well. Highlighted in Yellow offers inspiration for confronting issues that we all face daily.
