The author reads his work in an authoritative voice shaded with humor and clarity. Dooley reminds listeners of commonly held truths through clever admonitions, such as if we want to be loved, we must act loving, and the real danger is settling for less. He uses seamless narratives to explain such beliefs as it’s best not to have everything and every crisis carries seeds of opportunity. He advises listeners not to pray in question marks, but to pray in “thank you's.” He also embraces New Age thinking when he discusses the life-transforming power of words and mantras. Spiritual-sounding music separates these offerings—some of which are insightful, others of which lack originality. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2009]
