All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

The oft-quoted insights of The Little Prince, as well as aphorisms from other Saint-Exupery books, such as Flight to Arras and Wind, Sand and Stars, are gathered in A Guide For Grown-ups: Essential Wisdom from the Collected Works of Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Edited by Anna Marlis Burgard, the tiny volume offers a smattering of quotations on love, ("love is not thinking, but being") friendship and responsibility ("there is no growth except in the fulfillment of obligations"), making this a likely gift book, especially for those who believe, with Saint-Exupery, that "in giving you are throwing a bridge across the chasm of your solitude."

Adult/High School-This small book of reflects the unquenchable Saint-Exupéry's view of wartime Europe in the '30s and '40s. Teens enchanted by The Little Prince will find his royal highness on the cover of this book, but much of its wisdom is drawn from other writings. Quotations are grouped under headings such as "Friendship": "Friendship is born from an identity of spiritual goals-from common navigation toward a star" and "Love": "Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction." Teens may want to tuck this gem into a backpack for the moments of solitude a journey can provide, or turn to it when the clamor of competing values threatens to overwhelm and confuse them. The annotated bibliography puts the selections in perspective by providing a brief setting for each of the author's books.-Molly Connally, Kings Park Library, Fairfax County, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
