Pub. Date:

A wise and inspirational collection of seven life lessons drawn from one of the most beloved movies of all time—The Wizard of Oz—that coincides with the 75th anniversary of the MGM classic.

The most watched film in history, The Wizard of Oz resonates with viewers across the world from generation to generation. To Peter Guzzardi, the secret of the film’s continued appreciation more than seven decades after its initial release rests in the lessons it teaches us—“the seeds of wisdom it plants in us at an age when we’re most receptive, which then unfurl like night blooms over the course of our lifetime,” he contends.

In this thoughtful, accessible, feel-good book, Guzzardi reveals seven major life lessons at the heart of The Wizard of Oz. Tapping into the story’s inspirational power, he provides insight into how we can be our best selves—from discovering the importance of friendship and teamwork to finding courage to recognizing that we each face our own heroic journey. Enhanced by trivia about the film and the book by L. Frank Baum that inspired it, All I Need to Know I Learned from the Wizard of Oz will change the way we think about this legendary movie—and our own lives.
