    Hooray for whoever put this out in Book/Audio form! I had heard some of the individual entries, but it is truly exciting to see these short essays put together in one piece. There are wonderful glimpses of the individuals featured here. It's inspiring and encouraging to hear these short philosophies of famous and not-so-famous people.
    This is something different and fascinating. Easy listening in the best possible way!

    Based on the NPR series of the same name, This I Believe features 80 Americans, from the famous to the unknown, completing the thought that begins with the audiobook's title. The pieces that make up the program will compel listeners to rethink not only what and how they have arrived at their own personal beliefs, but also the extent to which they share them with others.

    "Not very engaging"

    Overall

    Albeit the cover and the audio sample were intriguing, the lecture was not. There was about thirty minutes of lecture and then student questions. The topic was interesting, but the presentation was superficial and minimal.

    At the risk of gushing, I love this program. The style is simple--a series of interviews with engaging people based on a particular theme--but somehow it manages to be informative, thought-provoking, entertaining and often quite moving. The interviewers are thoughtful and informed without ever being pedantic, and the interviewees are articulate and richly varied in background, interest, profession and voice. And it's a great deal--two hours of really good talk radio a week. Absolutely worth trying, and worth searching the archives, too--the breadth of topics is amazing.

She then met a BBC journalist who helped her learn about her son’s life.
