In today’s episode, author Peter Guzzardi takes us down a Yellow Brick Road of his own, with his debut work of inspiration, “Emeralds of Oz: Life Lessons from Over the Rainbow” (Harper Collins, 2019).

In addition to the many insights Peter draws from “The Wizard of Oz,” he finds nine Emeralds, which he believes have great value and power for guiding one through life’s obstacles.

Carol Burnett says that she “loved the book as much as the movie,” because it “opens your eyes and heart to a new way of being in the world.”

We start the show with Peter reading from early in the book, where he answers the question: “Why ‘The Wizard of Oz?’” And before we’re through today, you’ll be reminded why there’s no place like home.
