THIS I BELIEVE II More Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Various Readers

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2008

In this follow-up to last year's release of an audiobook compilation of essays written for and read on NPR (THIS I BELIEVE), editors Allison and Gediman have put together another set of readings of alternately touching, emotional, and even quirky personal statements of belief from a wide cross section of people, featuring everyday folks as well as the rich and famous. Limited to no more than 500 words, each essay is read aloud by the person who wrote it, providing listeners with a more personal and genuine experience of what each writer holds to be true. Jay Allison provides a brief introduction to each essay, but the narrators—from a waitress in a Texas diner to cellist Yo-Yo Ma—speak for themselves in defining the principles that guide their lives. Powerful and heartfelt. S.E.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2009 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
