'A delightful little book of thoughtful musings, jokes and anecdotes that are often just as challenging as they are humorous ... This Christmas Uncommon Sense would make the perfect little stocking-filler, bringing joyful mirth to recipients.'
-- Presbyterian Herald
'In Uncommon Sense, Dr Simpson draws on his vast store of literary, cultural and humorous stories to help distinguish what matters most in life from what does not matter that much - the essential from the incidental.
'It is a blend of seriousness and humour and is crammed with anecdotes about well known individuals such as Robert Burns, Martin Luther King, Emerson, Shakespeare, Lee Trevino and Arctic explorer Ejnar Mikkelson.'
-- Press and Journal
'Dr Simpson is a man not only learned and humane,
but one blessed with an irrepressible sense of humour.
Absorb his humour and laugh.'
-- Rosamunde Pilcher
'I am a great fan of Dr Simpson's writings.'
