Warum bleiben die Reichen reich und die Armen arm? Weil die Reichen ihren Kindern beibringen, wie sie mit Geld umgehen müssen, und die anderen nicht! Die meisten Angestellten verbringen im Laufe ihrer Ausbildung lieber Jahr um Jahr in Schule und Universität, wo sie nichts über Geld lernen, statt selbst erfolgreich zu werden. Robert T. Kiyosaki hatte in seiner Jugend einen "Rich Dad" und einen "Poor Dad". Nachdem er die Ratschläge des Ersteren beherzigt hatte, konnte er sich mit 47 Jahren zur Ruhe setzen. Er hatte gelernt, Geld für sich arbeiten zu lassen, statt andersherum. In Rich Dad Poor Dad teilt er sein Wissen und zeigt, wie jeder erfolgreich sein kann.

Diese Geschichten verändern den Blick auf die Welt Über acht Jahre hat Robin Black an dieser Sammlung von gerade einmal zehn Erzählungen geschrieben; zehn Geschichten, die von einer seltenen literarischen Reife und psychologischen Tiefe sind und die den Blick des Lesers auf die Welt, auf die Menschen und das Leben für immer verändern. Robin Blacks Erzählungen mögen an Lorrie Moore oder Alice Munro erinnern und haben doch einen ganz eigenen Ton. Denn diese Geschichten, die sich allesamt lesen wie kleine Romane, sind erfüllt von einer zutiefst berührenden menschlichen Wärme und emotionalen Weisheit. Robin Blacks Geschichten sind Erzählungen über die Liebe – und über das Fehlen oder den Verlust von Liebe, und wie unser Leben davon bestimmt und verändert wird. Da ist eine schwerkranke ältere Frau, die an der lieblosen Gedankenlosigkeit ihres Nachbarn zu zerbrechen droht. Da ist der Vater eines blinden Mädchens, den die abgöttische Liebe zu seiner Tochter selbst blind sein lässt für das elementare Verlangen der Tochter, einmal auszubrechen aus ihrem ständig behüteten Leben und zeigen zu können, wie selbständig sie eigentlich längst schon ist. Oder da ist die Frau, die damit leben lernen muss, dass der Mann, den sie liebt, bald sterben wird. In diesen zehn ungemein dichten Geschichten fängt Robin Black nicht weniger ein als die Essenz des Lebens. Sie erzählt von Schicksalsschlägen und davon, wie sie oft noch jahrelang das Leben eines Menschen prägen und bestimmen. Sie erzählt von der Liebe und wie sie sich im Lauf der Zeit verändert. Und sie erzählt davon, wie wenig wir oft von den Menschen, die uns am nächsten sind, ja, wie wenig wir oft von uns selbst verstehen. Sie schreibt über Krankheit, Verlust und Trauer, aber auch über die Kraft zum Neubeginn. Mit einem Wort: In ihrem ganz eigenen unsentimentalen und lakonischen Ton erzählt sie, wie schwierig und wie schön zugleich es sein kann, zu leben.

For the Love of Teachers is a tribute to those who possess the remarkable ability to exercise patience and understanding and to offer guidance along an unfamiliar path. The influence these dedicated teachers have is reflected in many of the goals their students set and achieve every day; whether learning to tie their shoes, memorizing multiplication tables, or excelling on the SATs—all basic steps which are vital to their growth and self-esteem. For this reason, among many others, the importance of these positive role models in our children's lives, as well as our own, can't be stressed enough. For the Love of Teachers is the ideal way to express the admiration and appreciation we share for them. The reasons why someone chooses to teach isn't always clear, but what many teachers have in common is the desire to make a difference in the lives of others—a task that can be bittersweet. For the Love of Teachers is filled with inspiring stories that do just that. Some are warm, humorous, and heartfelt, while others illustrate difficult or unexpected situations with the lessons learned along the way. Readers will identify with many of the students who recall that special teacher who challenged them to find their hidden talent, motivated them to push a little harder, or to simply surpass their own expectations. For the Love of Teachers is a special way of saying thanks to all the teachers who've sacrificed their time to better the lives of others.
