Publisher's Summary

Today we face a greater range of potential disasters than ever before - and Laurence Shorter is feeling anxious. Every time he turns on the radio or opens a newspaper he finds another reason to be tearful. It's time to make a change.

The Optimist charts Laurence's quest for inner happiness. Can Desmond Tutu bring a smile to Laurence's face? Will he ride out the tide of pessimism with California's famous Surfing Rabbi? Or will it fall to the ultimate icon of optimism, Bill Clinton, to show Laurence the brighter side of life?

The Optimist is a hilarious and life-affirming stand against the grind of everyday strife.

    This book was great fun to listen to, and I still remember it vividly. Very well narrated. Inspiring.
