Narrating this eye-opening examination of the uniquely human emotion of pride, Coleen Marlo combines a deft understanding of the author's academic thinking with a practical grasp of why her ideas are relevant to everyday life. Marlo's subtle intensity and vocal clarity make her an excellent choice to perform this book. Authentic human pride, which goes beyond the survival emotions shared by our primate cousins, is the feeling that who we are and what we're doing counts for something. It drives us to care about our place in the world and to accomplish feats that have meaning. With inspiring stories and Marlo's down-to-earth performance, it's easy for listeners to apply these lessons to themselves. The book also explains how narcissism, hubris, and arrogance represent corruptions of authentic pride that pit us against others instead of earning their genuine affirmation.
