Publisher's Summary

Here is the incomparable Dr. Seuss' story of an unnamed "you" whose travels through the world involve a series of ups and downs. His ultimate success, however, is "98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed!"

(P)2007 Random House, Inc. Listening Library, an imprint of the Random House Audio Publishing Group

What the Critics Say

"Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain,' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss' familiar pajama-clad hero is up to the challenge, and his odyssey is captured vividly....Seuss' message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act,' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'" (Booklist)

    "Lovely effects!"
    Any additional comments?

    My 5-6 year-old son loves the narration. We have the book, but as English is not my first language, I wanted a good narration. And this is a very good one, very entertaining, with nice sound effects.

    The book is pretty short. What I've done several times is I open the book, put the audio, and move through the pages while it's being narrated.

    "Fun, Short Little Story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Oh, the Places You'll Go! the most enjoyable?

    John Lithgow is reading a book by Dr. Seuss! What more could you ask for?

    "GREAT BOOK FOR ANY AGE - Ages 0-120!!!!!!"

    This book is a book that I have purchased and given to people many times. I have given this book to children, as well as people well over their retirement age! It contains wisdom that is concentrated, precise, concise, simple, and gets easily absorbed by your mind. It helps to quickly "ground" and encourage anyone. The book is "short and sweet" as they say! Now that I've discovered this spectacular audio version of the book, I expect that I will wind up purchasing many audio copies of the book as well! This audio version is the best that I've ever heard. Such a blessing to be able to listen to this book while you do something else physically (like for those automobile trips or commutes. This helps the book's subject matter to enter the conscious and subconscious mind in a much more enjoyable and refreshing manner.

    "Excellent narration ruined by music and effects"

    Lithgow's narration of Dr. Seuss' immortal verse was excellent, but my appreciation was totally was marred by the music and effects which were often at least as loud as the narration itself. Did they not think that the power of Seuss' words in the hands of a capable narrator (which Lithgow certainly is, don't get me wrong) would be suficient, tasty they had to cover it up with so many annoying bells and whistles?

    "Straight On"

    All the things said have been within me. It hits my issues straight on and lets me know I can move past them to my 98 & 3/4 % guarantee for success! Thank you Dr Seuss!

    "Wow"

    Deep, re-listening to it as an adult it has more useful meanings. I believe it was meant for adults and the pictures and all for the kids. I actually make my soldiers read this book when they are in troubled times. It reminds them of their youth yet gives answers to adult issues.

    "Great bath time listening for the little ones."

    When the girls start singing along with bubbles in their hair it really makes a tough day completely worth the workday chaos.

    "reminiscent of childhood memories"

    A well performed version of one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. I highly recommend for any Seuss fan (or parent).

    "Classic Inspirational Words"

    Well suited for the enrichment of all, young and old. The entrancing performance easily makes up for lacking the beloved illustrations. Worth many a listen.
