Publisher's Summary

From John Grogan, author of the New York Times best sellers Bad Dogs Have More Fun, Marley and Me, and The Long Way Home, comes a new collection of more than 80 newspaper articles from The Philadelphia Inquirer written when he was a columnist there. In Life Is Like a Sailboat, John Grogan shows us all sides of the human condition pieces than reflect his unique understanding of the crazy-quilt world we inhabit.

From the fragility of life almost gone in an instant at a crosswalk, to avoiding the shoals of adolescence, to cell phones driving us to distraction (as we drive!) to turning the tables on telemarketers, to the Iraq War coming home to a small town in Pennsylvania, these pieces are filled with insight and sensitivity, laced with humor and understanding. In his own very unique way, John Grogan makes all of us feel more connected to each other and less like strangers living in a strange land.
