    **5++ Goodreads Stars++ "Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.""Haters want us to hate them, because hate is incapacitating. When we hate, we can't operate from our real selves, which is our strength." Oh Anne Lamott, how do you manage to rip my heart into pieces and then mend it ever so carefully back together? This is what Lamott calls a paradox or conundrum, that life brings both immense joy and h...

    Anne Lamott loosely builds ALMOST EVERYTHING around a list she decides to make for her grandson and niece about everything she knows about almost everything, ideas that she thinks apply to almost everyone and that might help them someday, a list that she wishes her father had written for her. She writes humorously and lovingly about topic like serenity, food, hate, God, "famblies," and hope.(I received pre-publication access thanks to Edelweiss.)

    Anne Lamott at her best. By her account, she's compiling what she knows that's worth knowing for her grandson, a collection of observations and advice. It's also a guide to staying sane in a crazy world, which she acknowledges in a sideways manner here and there, but doesn't focus on. It's intensely personal and deeply loving. There are weaknesses here and there; for instance, I don't know that I can recommend her health advice, but it does come ...

    The title of Lamottโ€™s latest book, Almost Everything, seems apropos, since it addresses a variety of topics as diverse as dieting, death, and teaching elementary school children to write. The author, who says that โ€œalmost every facet of my meager maturation and spiritual understanding has sprung from hurt, loss, and disaster,โ€ offers some challenging pronouncements, such as when she confesses that her reaction to hearing about Syrian refuge...

    I have no idea how to write a cogent review of this book. It rambles and wanders. It amuses and it infuriates. The bottom line - if you like Lamott's writing, this is a wonderful book that will make you think about your own priorities. She has made a list of sorts for her grandson. Some of this is meditation, some of it is pronouncement. If you have somehow missed Lamott, this is a good introduction to her at tomes scattershot approach to life an...
