In The Treehouse, Naomi Wolf's most personal book yet, Naomi outlines her father's lessons in creating lasting happiness and offers inspiration for the artist in all of us. The book begins when Naomi asks Leonard to help build a treehouse for his granddaughter. I really enjoyed this book. I could relate to where she was coming from, I could see and appreciate her bravery in writing from a different mindset than she was used to, and learning in the process. The end product isn't perfect - but that's not really the point. It's getting closer to what matters.

Highly acclaimed author and feminist thinker Naomi Wolf was brought up to believe that personal happiness is something that can be taught - and learned. In this magical book, Naomi shares the enduring wisdom of her father, Leonard Wolf, a well-regarded poet and a teacher for sixty years who believes happiness can be achieved by honouring your inner artist. THE TREEHOUSE begins when Naomi asks her father to help build a treehouse for his granddaughter. Inspired by his dedication to her daughter's imaginative world, she asks her father to walk her through the lessons of his popular poetry class, and show her how he teaches people to see the world with a renewed sense of wonder. Each lesson became a chapter: 'Be Still and Listen,' 'Use Your Imagination', 'Do Nothing Without Passion', 'Your Mistakes are Part of the Draft'. Here is meditation on fathers and daughters, an argument for honouring the creative impulse, and unique instruction in the art of personal happiness.

As a feminist and academic I was excited to read this book. Before this my only opinion of Wolf came from reading The Beauty Myth which is almost required reading for feminists today. Now I wish I had skipped this. The book is supposed to be about Wolf's father, but in reality only about 30% is about her father, the rest is a long moan and groan by Wolf on how wonderful she is and how far removed she has become. You think?
Wolf is a complete narcissist that I think typifies a certain type of American academic that pulls their Ivy League degrees around with them for the rest of their life, always managing to bring up where they went to school in conversation. In that reality it really isn't what you know, but who you know and where you went to school. Wolf has done some good work, but that doesn't make her a good person. Her disdain for her father and her arrogance made this a very, very difficult book to get through. Not at all the book I was expecting and a true dissapointment.

Ms. Wolf brings to life her father's lessons with such honesty. His wise and insightful words are ones everyone can and should learn from.
- This book is a must read for everyone who is not satisfied with their journey in life .
- This book is a must read for everyone who believes they can't learn from their parents.
- This book is a must read for everyone who has ever wanted to create something beautiful but couldn't.
- This book is a must read for everyone who wants to improve their life.
- This book is a must read for everyone who wants a moving experience which will make them laugh and cry.
Let Ms. Wolf take you on a journey you will never forget.
I highly recommend this book. I loved it!

This is a beautiful book, a tribute not only to a father, but also to an extraordinary teacher with a passion for living. Naomi Wolf shares her father's poetic wisdom, lesson by lesson, by recounting a summer spent building a tree house with her children, her friends, and of course, her father, Leonard. As she looks to him for advice on how to build this metaphorical house, she opens herself to his wisdom in helping her to become a better teacher. She, in turn, teaches us. The Treehouse is a book that should be read by every aspiring writer.

Each lesson begins with a description of what Leonard is wearing, from a yellow rain slicker like Paddington Bear, to an "intellectual-in-the-1970s outfit," to a red flannel Basque shepherd's shirt and Argentine gaucho hat, and also tells what strange (or conventional) brew he is drinking. In addition to his outfits, Wolf's descriptive writing allows us to see his thick white eyebrows dance with expression and hear his voice as he lyrically speaks in quotes from Thoreau, Emerson, Chaucer, Dickenson, etc. Throughout the lessons, Wolf lapses into memoir, recounting her San Francisco childhood, and a small bit about her rise to fame after the publication of "The Beauty Myth," but only because it helps to explain the person she had become in spite of (or perhaps, because of) her father. Even more interesting is the biographic account of her father's bohemian life.

In the final lesson, as Leonard teaches the need to own your creative work, to "sign it and let it go," to me, the words that spoke the loudest were: "Once the work is out in the world, it is none of your business what your readers make of it." Again, wonderful advice for writers. As for reviewers . . .

I felt the need to review this book and give it my highest recommendation.

Naomi Wolf is an accomplished writer who takes us on a memorable trip through her childhood and into her early adult life by weaving tales that reveal some of the wisdom and life lessons that her parents (especially her dad) taught. there is a treehouse that gets built and that too is a source of more wisdom and interesting stories.

Naomi Wolf says it all. This just one of her many books and it tells how she became a writer.

It was totally enjoyable to read of her experiences and insight to her father's life.

I had a different view of what this book was going to be about and was a little disappointed. Though seemingly well written, it wasn't exactly what I was looking for.

For the most part, I could relate each "lesson" to myself (whom is not a writer), however the book does cater to the writer/poet and so it was difficult to hold my attention at times.

I did get a few "ah-ha's" out of it, however will probably not re-read it at a future date for inspiration nor recommend it to family or friends.
