One reader of Pass it Along: A Memoir said, “My expectation the latest of Dr. Jester's body of work was that he had written a light, entertaining piece for a change. What I discovered was a magnificent pearl in the oyster. It is truly a delightful read. It is a primer on life's lessons told in such an entertaining way that no one minds "being taught". Dr.Jester's book reminds us of our own humanity. His gentle urging for us to appreciate each other for individual uniqueness’s we all bring to this world is his most treasured gift of the book. It's definitely one you will pick up and read over and over. Great book for the holidays to, as Dr. Jester puts it--“Pass It Along.”

According to the book description of The Care and Feeding of the Spirit and Other Selected Essays, “From house rules with and without children to an altogether creative answer to the debate regarding homosexuals' right to marry, The Care and Feeding of the Spirit and Other Selected Essays by Harold D. Jester will make readers think. Inspired and wise, this collection of essays is powerful, timely, and provocative.”

 

According to the book description of Pulling Together: Crisis Prevention for Teens and Their Parents, “A crisis-prevention manual intended to help teenagers get along with their parents and solve family difficulties without professional help.”
