  • "interesting and enjoyable"

    Overall

    I enjoyed the way this book was set up. The essays were each read by the author themselves.(whenever it was possible) It contains a broad variety of beliefs, from serious to humerous. This book exposes you to many different opinions and leaves you considering what belief you feel most strongly about.

    "Not designed as an audio program!"

    Overall

    What I have discovered about this publisher: World Wide Multi Media, is that their audiobook titles are actually the audio track from dvd productions.
    They are not programs designed for a listening only audience!!
    These are not audio programs derived from a written book, they are a free-flowing interviews from some type of tv show that has several, several points where the host says, "take a look at this (video) clip." Or the program references picture after picture without explaining what is being seen. Completely inappropriate as an audio feature. I could understand if it was adapted as a listening program, but it isn't at all. Infuriating. Rip off!!
    Save your money. If you really want it, look for it in dvd format because that's the only way you will understand these World Wide Multi Media audiobooks. Or if feel you need the audio experience watch it on youtube and close your eyes and see if you enjoy it. Guaranteed you'll want to open your eyes.

    (the rating system needs to have a negative)

  • "VERY interesting!"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    This was a smorgasbord of fascinating interviews on a variety of "soul searching" topics. Fleming is an excellent interviewer - his voice is very pleasant without putting the listener to sleep, and the other interviewers are top rate too. I found myself wanting to explore more about these topics and the authors that were mentioned and I was sorry when the recording ended...so I listened again (something that I rarely do). This was a real pleasure to own!

It’s an expanded version of Saunders’ 2013 Syracuse University speech that went viral. Then, writer David Foster Wallace’s 2005 speech at Kenyon College has been called the best commencement address ever. It might have been all but forgotten, but after he took his own life in 2008, the text surfaced on the internet. It was later published as a book, called This is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life.

His book explains how millions of years of evolution have led our bodies to a paradoxical position. People in developed countries are living longer than ever, having vanquished diseases that used to kill people by the millions: smallpox, measles, polio and the plague. But we are also afflicted with more chronic, preventable illnesses and ailments, such as diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers, strokes, dementia, depression and anxiety.
