Expanding on a 2009 inspirational commencement speech at the University of Tennessee, the well-known entertainer Dolly Parton provides an effervescent sip of champagne, (rather than moonshine) in this smallest trifle of an audiobook, which is simply irresistible. This exploration of her personal philosophy follows her journey as songwriter, performer, and philanthropist. The audio includes two appealing original songs. With her self-deprecating style, her reading has that unique charm that is Parton’s own. Her delightful inflection and pacing are just right. Through examples and abundant dollops of wit, listeners are asked to learn, care, and dream more while forging ahead to take charge of their lives.
