About the book:

How many times has someone tried to console you by saying, "That's the way the cookie crumbles"? The message implies that whatever we were hoping for was destined to crumble and fall apart. "Well, that logic just doesn't hold water," claims Wally Amos, author of The Cookie Never Crumbles. "It totally slanders the nature of the cookie. When the cookie breaks apart, you don't lose that cookie, you get lots of little cookies." Amos excels at this sort of optimistic, kitchen-table wisdom, as evidenced by the success of his previous book, The Famous Amos Story, which tells the story of building his cookie empire. (Although it's probably safe to assume that cowriter Eden-Lee Murray has perfected the cozy style of writing.) Written in a cookbook format, the narrative often crumbles into clichés. In his opening chapter, "Essential Ingredients for Your Personal Pantry," he includes the "Basics," such as "Honesty, Integrity, Positive Loving Attitude...." Yet his "Recipe for Recovery" is a poignant observation on how to rebuild after disaster strikes. Like the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, this is a spiritually safe book--nondenominational, inoffensive, and full of tasty, inspirational morsels. There are even a few real cookie recipes, such as "Classic Chocolate Chip and Pecan Cookies and "Courage Coconut Cookies." --Gail Hudson
