On April 14, 2009, Random House Children’s Books will reissue two Dr. Seuss bestsellers and gift books, SEUSS-ISMS FOR SUCCESS: Insider Tips on Economic Health from the Good Doctor and SEUSS-ISMS: Wise and Witty Prescriptions for Living from the Good Doctor ( $7.99 / All Ages)—now with more Seuss-isms and an added gift-tag for consumers to personalize.
"Insider Tips on Economic Health from the Good Doctor"
Originally published in 1999, the New York Times and Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller SEUSS-ISMS FOR SUCCESS is a compilation of excerpts from Dr. Seuss’s classic children’s titles that offers insight into navigating the corporate world. For example, from Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? (1973) comes "On Micro-Management," and from Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now! (1972) comes "On Corporate Hierarchies" and "On Downsizing."
With a mix of insight, humor, and inspiration, this collection of pithy quotes will help business-minded readers get ahead in the one place wackier than anything Seuss himself could conjure up: the corporate world.
SEUSS-ISMS FOR SUCCESS is just the right gift for the business-minded parent on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, or for the college and graduate-school grad. Whether it is given to a recent graduate or an established business guru, all readers are sure to be entertained and inspired by Dr. Seuss’s insights.
"Wise and Witty Prescriptions for Living from the Good Doctor"
Originally published in 1997, SEUSS-ISMS: Wise and Witty Prescriptions for Living from the Good Doctor brings together some of Dr. Seuss’s wisest and wittiest sayings on subjects as varied as “Equality and Justice” and “Facing Up to Adversity” to “The Art of Eating” and “The First Nerd. ” The simple but sage words of Dr. Seuss have helped many a child (and grown-up) along the complicated road of life, so this collection is a wonderful gift for Seuss fans and ideal for sharing among generations.
Both titles are a testament to Dr. Seuss’s ability to capture audiences of all ages. The small hardcover format of these books make them ideal gifts and perfect coffee-table reading that will entertain friends both young and old.
