From Publishers Weekly
The oft-quoted insights of The Little Prince, as well as aphorisms from other Saint-Exupery books, such as Flight to Arras and Wind, Sand and Stars, are gathered in A Guide For Grown-ups: Essential Wisdom from the Collected Works of Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Edited by Anna Marlis Burgard, the tiny volume offers a smattering of quotations on love, ("love is not thinking, but being") friendship and responsibility ("there is no growth except in the fulfillment of obligations"), making this a likely gift book, especially for those who believe, with Saint-Exupery, that "in giving you are throwing a bridge across the chasm of your solitude."

From Publishers Weekly
These mostly private writings by the author of The Little Prince , who died on a reconnaissance flight in North Africa in 1944, reflect his mental torment over France's 1940 defeat and his own perceived exile, first in New York and then Algeria. PW maintained , "These edited fragments, philosophical and at times poetic, are intriguing, but add little to the literary stature of a legendary voice in aviation." Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Review
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry first published The Little Prince in 1943, only a year before his Lockheed P-38 vanished over the Mediterranean during a reconnaissance mission. More than a half century later, this fable of love and loneliness has lost none of its power. The narrator is a downed pilot in the Sahara Desert, frantically trying to repair his wrecked plane. His efforts are interrupted one day by the apparition of a little, well, prince, who asks him to draw a sheep. "In the face of an overpowering mystery, you don't dare disobey," the narrator recalls. "Absurd as it seemed, a thousand miles from all inhabited regions and in danger of death, I took a scrap of paper and a pen out of my pocket." And so begins their dialogue, which stretches the narrator's imagination in all sorts of surprising, childlike...
