    DescriptionWith the sensibility of a poet, the outlook of a practical philosopher, the obsession of a list maker, Barbara Ann Kipfer is a writer with a unique approach to life. In 14,000 THINGS TO BE HAPPY ABOUT, she tells us why to live. In THE WISH LIST, she tells us what we should do with our lives. And so far it's worked - her first two books have over a million copies in print. Now in 8,789 WORDS OF WISDOM, she tells us how to live. 8,789 WORDS OF WISDOM is brimming with great advice, maxims, sayings and saws, proverbs, precepts and truths - 8,789 of them, to be exact. It has the chunky comfort of 14,000 THINGS, and a similar quirky, compulsively readable format - line after line after page after page of words of wisdom. Turn to any spot in the book and there is the secret to living a happier, healthier, saner, more productive life. Learn to unlearn. Appreciate the questions as much as the answers. Stretch beyond what is comfortable. There are folksy expressions polished smooth over time: If you think you can, you can. Experience is the best teacher. Quotes: Those who know don't speak, those who speak don't know (Laotzu). Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there (Will Rogers). Unexpected turns: Listen with your eyes. Good judgment comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgment. Taken together it's the ultimate source of self-improvement.
