Book Review: If I Could Tell You Just One Thing...

18 Jul 2018 / 11:47 H.

AUTHOR Richard Reed is the founder of Art Everywhere and co-founder of Innocent Foundation and Jamjar Investments.
This is his first book and each personality he features is accompanied by a beautiful sketch drawn by Samuel Kerr.
Just to clarify, this is not another book of quotations. It is a book that briefly covers why a personality is interesting and why the person's advice (which is based on experience) is meaningful.
Reed himself relates an experience from his childhood going on long walks with his father as a reference point.
He poses the same question to all the personalities featured in the book: Given all that you have experienced, given all that you now know and given all that you have learnt, if you could pass on only one piece of advice, what would it be?
From former US President Bill Clinton to His Holiness Dalai Lama, to celebrities such as Stephen Fry and Simon Cowell, sports figures like Andy Murray, and activists-cum-celebrities such as Joanna Lumley and Annie Lennox, we are treated to some valuable pearls of wisdom.
This book makes for easy reading and is better than the regular self-help book.
