BUILDING A LIFE WORTH LIVING A Memoir

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Hillary Huber, Stephen Mendel [Fore.]

Biography & Memoir • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Hillary Huber ably performs the majority of this work, with Stephen Mendel sharing the foreword. In this audiobook, Marsha Linehan tells her life story and how she created a new form of behavior therapy, which she calls dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). It is designed for those diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD), which, incredibly, Linehan herself suffered as a teenager. Huber's expertise in phrasing and timing give the work such a natural flow that listeners will feel they come to know Linehan well. Huber is skillful at subtly transitioning from dialogue to internal monologue, executing it smoothly and effectively. Linehan spent many years learning to become a Zen master to improve her therapy, and Huber gives a masterful performance of her work. E.E.S.
