The Wisdom of the Shire free pdf A Hobbit's guide to life for the millions of fans of J.R.R. Tolkien -- published in anticipation of the release of Peter Jackson's film "The Hobbit """

How can simple pleasures like gardening, taking long walks and eating delicious meals with friends make you significantly happier? Why is the act of "giving" presents on your birthday instead of "getting" them such a revolutionary idea? And how can we carry the burden of our own "magic ring of power" without becoming devoured by it? "The Wisdom of the Shire" holds the answers to these questions.

In the tradition of the best-selling "The Tao of Pooh," Noble Smith sheds a light on the life-changing ideas tucked away inside J.R.R. Tolkien's classic novels, revealing how a snug Hobbit hole is actually just a state of mind, and that even the smallest person can have the valor of a Rider of Rohan. In chapters such as "Bearing The Burden Of Your Ring," "Eat Like A Brandybuck, Drink Like A Took," and "Your Own Personal Gollum," "The Wisdom of the Shire" explores subjects dear to a Halfling's heart like beer, food and friendship, as well as more serious concerns such as courage, living in harmony with nature and good versus evil.

With hundreds of millions of copies of Tolkien's works in print and Peter Jackson's film adaptations continuing to build a whole new fan base, Noble Smith has created a self-help guide that will appeal to legions of devotees of Middle-earth.
