This is the version of "The Greatest Gift" that you want - the ORIGINAL. No name changes. Forget that new red edition - it looks pretty, but they've changed it. This version is a heftier book (it's still tiny - remember, this story was originally on a Christmas card!) with more information about the author and the movie as well. Trust me - buy this edition, even if you have to buy it used!

A very special story with a humble beginning-- a 'Christmas card' --that went on to become one of the best loved films of all time, "It's a Wonderful Life." This is the original story written by Philip Van Doren Stern, with an Afterword written by his daughter (who actually delivered some of her father's 'Christmas cards' to teachers and friends.) The slim volume is handsomely done... elegant pen and ink sketches...an illustrated hard cover framed by a dust jacket with a unique cutout that serves as a portal into the story, transporting the reader into the small village of Bedford Falls on a fateful winter night when one man no longer sees the value of his own life. A deceptively simple story carrying a profound message: every life is exceptionally and uniquely important. "The Greatest Gift" is just that--an inspirational and timeless message of hope and self-worth. And, it should never be forgotten that "It's a Wonderful Life" was only made because one man was inspired to write ... a Christmas card.

I throughly enjoyed previously reading this novella, "The Greatest Gift," which was the source and inspiration for THE great Christmas movie "It's a Wonderful Life." As a result, I wanted to order a copy for a family member who loves the movie. Since the book is not currently in print, except for a new limited high-priced leatherette bound edition, I checked on used copies from Amazon sellers. After looking, I decided to order a VG quality copy from Woody's Books. About 10 days went by and I received a follow-up Email from a Woody's representative, asking about my receiving and enjoyment of the book. I had not received the book and as it turned out, it was evidently lost in the mail. The rep researched and followed up multiple times to check with me and offered a prompt replacement from their stock, if available, or possibly from other sources or a refund. I requested an equal quality replacement, if available, and a refund if not. My result ... within 3 business days I received a very good quality replacement copy of the lost order, sourced from another bookseller. The overall response and the final result, to me, reflects great customer service by a great bookseller and Amazon seller!

Favorite Christmas movie, "It's a Wonderful Life." This is the foundation of the movie. Great quick read. It's predictable because I've seen the movie approximately 50 times or more in my life.

I am a huge fan of the movie "It's a Wonderful Life", so I ordered the inspiration behind it. I was not disappointed, although it is very different from the movie, I enjoyed the story. This book arrived in very good condition, in a very prompt time and I am pleased to have it in my christmas book collection.

If you want the short version of "It's a Wonderful Life," this is the book for you. The story behind how the movie was made based on this short story is very cool.
The story is different from the movie. It is amazing that this was intended to be Christmas gift to friends in the form of a card. How Frank Capra turned this into It's Wonderful Life amazes me. The message from the book is timeless and should be preached by all.
