Here’s what people are saying about Wisdom from the Cup:

“The lessons offered by Nellie Symm Gruender are useful and inspiring, much like those offered by Richard Carlson in Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, but Nellie shares her insights in a light-hearted, conversational manner, creatively linking each to its own decorative coffee cup, and allowing us to learn as we might by talking to our neighbors or best friends. Nellie points out the rainbow among the clouds.”

“The titles of many of Nellie’s ‘cups’ are so unassuming you might mistakenly think them uninteresting, but just start drinking, and you soon find extraordinary accounts of romance, wanderlust, rainbow chasing, starry nights, and home ports. They are anecdotes delivered in the spirit of Bombeck’s Life is a Bowl… only Nellie Symm-Gruender shows us her incredible vistas and seminal moments one cup at a time.”
