Parables for Life in the 21st Century is a compilation of twenty-four parables that cover common-sense sayings ("Warmth and kindness can gain you more good than meanness and a cold heart") as well as not-so-common-sense sayings ("Don't forget the basics. Roger did, and his parakeet died"). These parables can be read (and re-read) in any order, and many well-known individuals in a variety of fields have endorsed the book. Mr. Gustafson has written each parable (the story, the moral, and the applications) to endure, to stand the test of time. This is a book that parents will want to keep and pass on to their children. Woodrow Gustafson, the author's son, has drawn original illustrations to accompany some of the fables.
Parables for Life in the 21st Century is the book that contains powerful messages that will be discussed by business and political leaders, media personalities, and everyday people who just want to feel good about themselves. Stuart Gustafson delivers a strong message in a soft manner that reaches everyone.
