Thomas Moore's seminal work is a philosophical treatise. The title summarizes the theme--personal care of one's own uniqueness and of the special way our souls nurture us. Moore draws heavily on mythology, theology and psychology in his ideas, which are ecumenical though Moore is openly Roman Catholic. His ideas invite concentration and reflection, not easily produced while driving or exercising. Furthermore, Nelson Runger's smooth, dry, controlled voice lacks the passion necessary to sustain interest in this abstract topic. This book is not suited for unabridged audio. It craves the printed page, notes in margins and quiet space. In audio, Moore's work is more effective in abridged form, especially when read by the author.
