    My illusions have been shattered. Ok, maybe it's not that dramatic. Perhaps they have just been slowly eroded, and now that the erosion has gone on long enough, it is suddenly apparent. This is a small book (like, wallet sized) containing excerpts from It's Not Easy Being Green. A book of quotations from Jim Henson seems, at first glance, to make for a promising read, especially when these are excerpts from a larger volume - leading one to believe that the wisdom contained within is the absolute best of what the lengthier tome had to offer.Three posibilities exist: the editors of this book are not very good at selecting ideal pearls of wisdom, editors of the original book are not very good at selecting ideal pearls of wisdom, or (clutch my chest in the realization of slowly eroded agony) Jim Henson's pearls of wisdom are not very good.Don't get me wrong, Jim Henson's Muppets were purveyors of really great messages: be yourself, like yourself, be true to yourself, be true to your friends, it's ok to be a weirdo, do the right thing, don't forget to play, etc. There is very little, however, that goes deeper than that.I have gained no insight into the world of Jim Henson, nor any insight into my own world. Upon reflection, the same is true of all Jim Henson-related literature I have come across. I unconditionally love Kermit the Frog, like nothing else, but I will stop trying to find something more to his creator.

    I loved this little book :-) It is written with humor, it brought a big smile on my face, one page after the other. *Spoiler*The one below is one of my favorites:Well, when the path is steep and stony and the night is all around And the way that you must take is far away When your heart is lost and lonely and the map cannot be found Here's a simple little spell that you can say:You've got to face facts, act fast on your own Preparation, perspiration, dynamite determination Pack snacks, make tracks all alone Don't be cute. Time to scoot. Head out to your destinatio.Chase the future, face the great unknown.Gobo Fraggl
