This is the hilarious story of a poor boy from the Middle West
who became one of America's topflight TV stars. But he was bothered with
a boyhood dream and eventually left the big time. He made his home in
three continents and became a much-loved world traveller.
Through
all the laughter - as it's uproarious at times - there is an underlying
serious note, and the fact that his dream came true and brought him
long-sought spiritual assurance is a considerable satisfaction to the
reader.

The great thing about this site is looking around and rediscovering all the old books you've read in your life. This was a gift to me by a dear friend and is a great book for Baha'i and non Baha'i alike. William Sears is one of those guys you wish you could've met. I need to read this again.

This is a spiritual book for people who are not religious, or not attracted to religion. It is the story of one man's search for truth, and how his life changed when he found it.

What a marvelous book this is. The beginning of the book was an introduction to the writers youth (and special bond with his grandfather) and lasted a bit long but it was worth being patient for everything written since the middle to the end of this book! What a nice story of how this writer came to his faith and the journey he made. Full of nice anecdotes and metaphors and wisdom (from his grandfather). A great read!

It's an easy book to read, and the light hearted note belies the seriousness of the topic of finding, losing and finding the guiding light of faith again. As someone struggling with finding faith, the simplicity of how the narrator's life unfolds brings hope. At the same time, however, it baffles me and triggers that disbelieving part of me that wonders, is it really that straightforward? I did come away from reading the book feeling more optimistic and light-hearted, though.

Delightful commuting of age story.

I loved the relationship with Grandpa...we should all be this fortunate. I was also inspired by the love story. With Magritte. Too often spiritual journeys are not supported by our partners. It just proves that if we listen and trust God guides us where we need to go.

Laugh out loud, look back at a bygone era with fondness and listen to a storyteller tell his story with a richness as only a blessed few can manage. This was a true find and I will eagerly read his other works.

My parents had a copy of this book sitting on the bookshelf, and one day when I was around ten years old, I pulled it out and read it. This is basically a collection of memorable stories about the life of Mr. William Sears. My favourite was the one about how his family came back from vacation to find they'd left a hose running and now their kitchen floor was an ice rink. I got a kick out of his father's Irish drinking songs and his Grandfather's humour.

I got a kick out of his father's Irish drinking songs and his Grandfather's humour. It does talk about his finding the Baha'i Faith and the work he did, but isn't too in-your-face about it. Personal footnote.... Not long after reading this book, I met Mr. Sears at the Desert Rose Baha'i School. He came to the children's class and gave us all prayer books. I remember standing in line to have him autograph this book, only he had to go because he was tired (he was very old by then). Really loved Mr. Sears, and loved this book, too. ...more

Some books are timeless; others become dated days after their last printing. Some, though, are like little paperbound time machines, and this is one of those ... with lots of references to events, people, and turns of phrase from the 1930s, '40s, and 50s that stretch your brain cells to remember what's being said. My husband read this book to me, and we both laughed out loud more than once. It's a simple story with an important message: The world is too big to take ourselves too seriously.

A wonderful book that I couldn't put down until the end. Easy reading of a little boy, his endearing relationship with his grandfather and his fascination and search for God. You can't help but laugh out loud at his antics and yet get a tear in your eyes over the special relationship with his Grandfather. A must read at any age!

It has a lot of funny stories of William's life growing up and his obsession with God. He met a woman who introduced him to Baha'i Faith and the rest was history. He ended up doing quite well for himself in radio and TV and ended up traveled the world...lucky duck.

A beautiful story of following the need we all have to look for something more, a bigger purpose. Especially noteworthy for Baha'is, who will cherish the beginning of the story of how William Sears came to be one of the most beloved figures in the Baha'i Faith.

My 2nd go around with this book. Loved it the 1st time and now reading it to my son who continues to laugh at William's antics. Most
Of all, I love the searching for God and where it leads him!
