Everything I Need to Know cover

EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE (2017): Can you live your life by what "The Twilight Zone" has to teach you? Yes, and maybe you should. The proof is in this lighthearted collection of life lessons, ground rules, inspirational thoughts, and stirring reminders found in Rod Serling's timeless fantasy series. Written by veteran TV critic Mark Dawidziak, this unauthorized tribute is a celebration of the classic anthology show, but also, on another level, a kind of fifth-dimension self-help book, with each lesson supported by the morality tales told by Serling and his writers.
