In just a short period, Boy Abunda‘s book ‘It’s Like This’ is now ranked No. 1 for National Book Store October Bestsellers list for Non-Fiction: Philippine Publication. The book was formally launched last September at Shangri-L04a Mall.
It’s Like This, a good source of inspiration to the readers, contains life lessons, quotes, and selected essays that Abunda wrote for his Direct Line column in The Philippine Star. Abunda’s life story is an open book. It’s Like This covers his humble beginnings in Borongan, Eastern Samar; his unparalleled love for Nanay Lising; his personal challenges; his journey as a television host, inspirational speaker, and talent manager, among others. His nuggets of wisdom are now preserved in the pages of his bestselling book. Some of them include: Gay love is equal to all forms of human love; Never allow other people’s opinions to define who you are. And your opinions must not define others as well; Believe that something great is to become of you. Believe and it will happen; Laugh and live with your successes and failures, knowing that all are fleeting; Enemies deserve respect. The same respect we give to the dead.
Read his 100+ Abundable thoughts and see what valuable lessons you can apply to your personal life.
It’s Like This is a great gift for Christmas. Available in National Book Store and Powerbooks for only P275.
