The bestselling author's new book is in the same easygoing mode as his still -popular All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten and It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It . Starting off with references to the unexpected that prompt the eponymous ``uh-oh,'' the lay philosopher advises on how to turn unfortunate surprises into triumphs. A bride's uncontrollable hiccups throws everyone into helpless laughter but instead of ruining the wedding, the merriment makes it more joyous. When a passerby hijacks a costly cigar Fulghum has saved for a rare treat, the incident, as he describes it, results in ``the very finest cigar I never had.'' Fulghum's experiences and those of others amuse, teach and even provoke tears in readers who are tuned in to his inspired observations. Literary Guild selection; author tour. (Aug.)
