First Lady Barbara Bush was famous for handing out advice. From friends and family to heads of state and Supreme Court justices and certainly to her staff, her advice ranged from what to wear, what to say or not say and how to live your life.

She especially loved visiting with students of all ages, from kindergartners to college graduates. When she turned 80, she owned up to all her advice-giving and explained it this way: After all, in 80 years of living, I have survived 6 children, 17 grandchildren, 6 wars, a book by Kitty Kelly, two presidents, two governors, big Election Day wins and big Election Day losses and 61 years of marriage to a husband who keeps jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. So, it's just possible that along the way I've learned a thing or two.

At the end of the day, she taught all of us some valuable lessons. As First Lady, she made a point of cuddling a baby with AIDS and hugging a young man who was HIV positive and whose family had rejected him, showing us by example the importance of compassion and the myth of fear. As a mother, she made sure we all knew that your children must come first and one of the most important things you can do is to read to them. As a friend and mentor, she showed that you had to be true to yourself and even at the end of her life, she taught us how to die with grace.

Full of Barbara Bush's trademark wit and thoughtfulness, Pearls of Wisdom is a poignant reflection on life, love, family and the world by one of America's most iconic -- and beloved -- public figures.
