What on Earth Have I Done?: Stories, Observations, and Affirmations

Robert Fulghum, Author MacMillan Audio $29.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-4272-0185-0
Fulghum probes life's important questions in this collection of ""stories, essays, and affirmations."" The grandfatherly Fulghum asks listeners: what on Earth are you doing? What in the name of God have you done? What will you think of next? And who do you think you are? Narrating with brief, simple and powerful commentaries, Fulghum relates everyday incidents from his life, such as teaching his grandchildren poker and receiving a cynical home evaluation, which will have a profound effect on the listener. Fulghum tries his best to incorporate a variety of voices to represent the various individuals present in his stories. Fulghum's recounting is unhurried and leisurely, unfolding at a steady pace that works to reaffirm his message, namely to slow down and appreciate the world in which we live. The pace may prove to be far too sluggish and monotonous for many listeners, but with a wide array of valuable insights and assertions, the material tends to speak for itself. Simultaneous release with the St. Martin's hardcover (reviewed online).
