ALL THE GOLD STARS Reimagining Ambition and the Ways We Strive

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jess Nahikian

Personal Growth • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Jess Nahikian's voice sounds assured, comfortable, and clear, but their real achievement is how well their performance connects with this author's thoughtful perspectives and desire to help young people. The audiobook is a calm but persistent plea for people to resist societal messages that we should hustle more and never be satisfied with our accomplishments. Author and cultural observer Rainesford Stauffer argues against this kind of relentless ambition with a pleasing blend of richly detailed research and her own career experiences fighting such pressure. With the help of Nahikian's comfortable speaking style and support of the author's intentions, this audiobook is one that will make many listeners take a hard look at overly ambitious lifestyles that don't allow room for imagination, joy, or healthy relationships.
