The World According to Tom Hanks
If you need a gift for a man who's as great of a guy as Tom Hanks...or a gift for a man who you wish were as great of a guy as Tom Hanks, well hey, there's now a book about what a great guy Tom Hanks is! And any guy who gets The World According to Tom Hanks: The Life, the Obsessions, the Good Deeds of America's Most Decent Guy, regardless of his level of greatness beforehand, will probably come away at least a little greater after reading it.
Obviously, Tom Hanks is too gracious and humble to write a book all about himself, so Gavin Edwards took on the pleasure of telling us exactly how Hanks "lives a passionate, joyful life and pays it forward to others." Edwards also wrote The Tao of Bill Murray, and as in that biography, he condenses Hanks' life story into 10 commandments of the actor's All-American philosophy.
One thing's for sure: The World According to Tom Hanks is the nicest book you'll read all year.
