    Emeralds of Oz is part memoir and part self-help. I really liked the simplicity of it. Most of his ideas are not new to me, but are great reminders. There are times when you just want a gentle reminder to take care of yourself, but you don't want a high level of intensity. This books is perfect for that. In Emeralds of Oz, Peter Guzzardi shares his Nine Emeralds of Wisdom that he takes from the Wizard of Oz, both book and film.

This books is perfect for that. In Emeralds of Oz, Peter Guzzardi shares his Nine Emeralds of Wisdom that he takes from the Wizard of Oz, both book and film. The Nine Emeralds are: listen to your longing, see the world as if for the first time, celebrate yourself -and others- for showing up, choose compassion, you already possess what you desire most, face what you fear, pull back the curtain and see things as they really are, you've got the power, and you've had it all along, and there's no place like home. It is obvious that Peter Guzzardi did extensive research into both The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the book and The Wizard of Oz, the film. He researched L. Frank Baum's intentions. And why The Wizard of Oz the most watched film of all time? The hardcover edition is lovely with its deckled edges and green glitter cover pages.

    Cheerful little book about the hidden meaning of The Wizard of Oz. It’s more of a self-help book and I found it fairly superficial with lots of exclamation points throughout!!!!

    What a pleasant surprise to find this gem of a book. As a long time fan of the 1939 MGM production of the Wizard of Oz and Frank L. Baum, I dove right in. Guzzardi gleans pearls of wisdom from the actions of our beloved cast. Lessons of compassion and understanding are hidden just beneath the surface. MGM dedicated their classic movie to the young at heart and to those who faithfully return to it again and again.

    Definitely a different take on life and philosophy, but who hasn't seen the Wizard of Oz? Takes a while to get to the breakdown of the book/movie, but this makes me want to read the original. He definitely did his research!!!
