Life Lessons from the One and Only Elmo
Valerie Osler & Sudhir Ispahani
Modern life is hectic and stressful, and all too often, we forget to stop and remember what is important. Business partners and technology executives Valerie Osler and Sudhir Ispahani were guilty of giving in to the harried, hectic lifestyle surrounding them—until they learned how to truly live, from one small, fluffy guru.
In Life Lessons from the One and Only Elmo, Valerie and Sudhir share the philosophy of simplicity that they discovered by paying attention to Elmo, the cocker spaniel, and his canine brothers, JuiceBox, Max, and Midas. From appreciating the small things, to experiencing happiness as a constant state, to giving freely of affection and care, Elmo’s innocent worldview sets an example for anyone who wants to lead a kinder, more generous, and more fulfilled life.
Filled with photographs, anecdotes, and invaluable wisdom, this book is both an homage to Elmo’s life and a guidebook to becoming a better person.
