The author’s extensive research and academic credentials don’t keep his humanity from taking center stage throughout this touching lesson on living authentically. Along with recommending realistic goal-setting, emotional honesty, and supportive relationships, he makes a heartfelt argument that striving for perfection or following other people’s ideas of success can keep us from the life we are meant to live. Eric Conger’s sublime voice is a joy to hear. Though his interpretation is not short on drama, it’s also relaxed and gives the author’s often-weighty personal story a lighthearted familiarity. Conger’s smooth diction and confidence with his own style help keep the author’s narrative flamboyance and frequent self-referencing from getting in the way of this classic advice. T.W.
