I haven't been that high on a coffee table book in a long time. They're often heavy but thin, if you know what I mean. But this year I'm really enjoying WISDOM: The Greatest Gift One Generation can Give To Another, by Andrew Zuckerman. I was a bit worried when I cracked this tome open; the sap potential was high. I ordered it on a hunch, because I loved Zuckerman's book, Music.
But when I flipped it open I knew I was in for a fascinating read. The interviews are thoughtful and generous. This is a book to be savored. For generations. I plan to gift it to my godchildren. But this copy is going to be mine for a while before I let it out of my hands.
