Summary

The best-selling author of Encyclopedia an Ordinary Life returns with a literary experience that is unprecedented, unforgettable, and explosively human. 
In the 10 years since the publication of her beloved, groundbreaking Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life, number-one New York Times best-selling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal has been quietly tinkering away. Using her distinct blend of nonlinear narrative, wistful reflections, and insightful wit, she has created a modest but mighty new work. 
Why the title Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Because the book is organized into chapters with classic subject headings such as Social Studies, Music, Language Arts, Math, etc. 
Because textbook is an expression meaning "quintessential", as in, Oh, that wordplay and unconventional format is so typical of her, so textbook Amy
Because for the first time ever, listeners can further engage with a book via text messaging. 
Because if an author's previous book has Encyclopedia in the title, following it up with a Textbook would be rather nice. 
Not exactly a memoir, not just a collection of observations, Textbook Amy Krouse Rosenthal is an exploration into the many ways we are connected on this planet and speaks to the awe, bewilderment, and poignancy of being alive. 
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Serendipitous

I came to read this book in an interesting way today, and I couldn't be happier that I did. What a beautiful, honest, heartbreaking and incredible experience that was. Thank you so much for your words, Amy.

Best ending ever

I’m a fan of AKR, and find her happy and quirky outlook on the world life affirming. The knowledge that she’s no longer walking this planet cast a deeper dimension on this reading. How I wish I’d read this earlier and been able to take advantage of her offers of interaction. Goodbye, I love you, thank you.
