5.0 out of 5 stars "seeds of wisdom, slices of life" May 26 2002
Format:Paperback
This is a charming, uplifting, extemely honest little book, full of nuggets of wisdom, and a glimpse into Amos' life. Measuring not much more than 5 x 7, it would make the perfect stocking stuffer, or gift for someone who needs some encouragement and a few positive thoughts.
Wally has been an adventurous soul, and has a wonderful, easy and humorous way with words. He's had his ups and downs, but has known how to get by with a fearless zest for living.
The layout is excellent, and unlike some books of this type, has no wasted space. Its 9 chapters are separated by choice quotes from wise folks like Confucius and Mark Twain, and a short "Wallymelon Lesson", like: "My experiences have shown me that life truly is a journey, and the less baggage we carry the easier the ride" (pg. 38).
I particularly liked the chapter that deals with the loss of his mother, "Gaining from Loss". It was tenderly written and quite moving. Though there's no new revelation in this book, it's an easy, refreshing read, like spoonfulls of cheer, with a lot of heart.
"...we are all strands in the tapestry of life. Whatever we do to the tapestry, we do to ourselves" (pg.83).

So many aspects to self-help. I haven't quit talking about this book since I read it 3 weeks ago. I have purchased 3 copies so far to hand out as presents. Everybody should read this no matter what your age, you will gain a positive insight. It was recommended to me by my therapist who has been passing the "word"of Watermelon Magic on to everyone who will listen. I will be giving this book as a present to everyone that I know who has a birthday this year or Christmas or just "because they need it". The only unfortunate thing is that it is not on audio tape for the blind. Work on that

5.0 out of 5 stars A profound joy! Feb. 9 2006
By Afrikwame - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I got this book as a Kwanzaa gift from my aunt and at first, I didn't know what to expect. The title seemed a bit condescending and "Uncle Tom"-ish, and Wally Amos, the COOKIE GUY???? But since I am an open minded intellectual African, I read the book, to find that I could not put it down!

Amos, a brilliant entrepeneur, has succeeded because of his positive attitude and his joyous approach to life. He makes lemonade from life's lemons (or watermelons) and is so warm and wise, he reminds me of the village elders from Africa.

The book is filled with anecdotes and pearls of wisdom culled from his own experience, as well as the history of our people, and also from philosophers and writers as diverse as Confucius and Booker T.

I most strongly recommend this book to anyone, African or not, to lift their spirits and find a way to smile though adversity.
