It may not be easy being green, but Kermit the Frog knows how to make our lives easier by sharing some of the wisdom and insight he has gleaned over the years as a Muppet and lover of life. This popular television character is now a sage - and a best-selling author in Before You Leap, a collection of reflections from a frogís life.

With humor, heart and lots of joy, Kermit tells us just what we need to make our dreams come true, fill our lives with love and magic, and believe in ourselves. He teaches us to rid ourselves of fears, from fear of failure to fear of pigs; offers us a seven-step method for identifying our dreams; gives u14 pointers for friendships that last; gives tips on staying creative all through life; and even shares his Muppetís Money Manual, with advice on making, keeping, and sharing the wealth. Of course, itís all good fun, but believe it or not, there is plenty of solid, motivating and inspiring ideas in this charming book, much more than in some of the recent self-help books Iíve read. In fact, by the time you finish this delightful and insightful look at how the other half lives, as in the amphibious half, you will wonder why nobody has given Kermit his own talk show in between Oprah and Dr. Phil.

With plenty of color and black and white pictures, and lots of input from other characters weíve come to know and love, including Fozzy Bear and Miss Piggy, Before You Leap is a book of life lessons, told from the heart of a guy, er, frog, who has lived his dreams, and now wants nothing more than to share the wealth of his mighty green spirit and help us live ours.

We love you, Kermie!
