H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
is a New York Times number-one-best-selling author of the book series "Life's Little Instruction Book" and "Live and Learn and Pass It On"
As owner and creative director of an advertising agency in Nashville, Tennessee, H. Jackson Brown, Jr. spent his days composing music and creating TV and print campaigns to help promote his client's products. But it was simple words of wisdom gathered from other people and his own experiences that made him a best-selling author.
It began with his publication of A FATHER'S BOOK OF WISDOM, which was quickly followed by P.S. I LOVE YOU, a collection of sayings and observations from his father and mother. Both were very popular and led to LIFE'S LITTLE INSTRUCTION BOOK, which was originally written as a going-away present for his college-bound son, Adam. Jackson's 511 reminders about "how to live a happy and rewarding life" became a phenomenal best-seller that is loved worldwide. It has sold more than 9 million copies and logged more than two years on the New York Times best-seller list, including more than a year at the number one spot. LIFE'S LITTLE INSTRUCTION BOOK is the only book to ever occupy the number one spot on the New York Times best-seller list in both paperback and hardback formats simultaneously. It has often been described as "America's favorite little book."
His 33 books have been translated into more than 35 languages and have sold over 24 million copies worldwide. They have spawned calendars, posters, apparel items, daily journals, greeting cards, audiocassettes, screensavers and even fortune cookies. But his success can best be measured in the response from his readers. Tens of thousands of letters have poured in from people all over the world. Feedback ranges from the simple, "I enjoyed your book and I read a page or two every night before I go to bed" to the humbling "your book convinced our family to adopt a special needs child."
"Most of us know what we need to do to make our lives more fulfilled and useful, but sometimes we forget," Jackson says. "My little books serve as gentle reminders of those simple things which, if done well and in a spirit of love, can significantly change our lives."
