This is a quasi-humorous book by an author who seems to really have nothing much to say other than to continually remind the reader/listener that while she used to be poor, she is now very successful. So, we are told about how she gets to go all over the country on her book tour, how she lives in an expensive house in the woods with rich neighbors down the street, about her estate planning problems, and on and on. Frankly, it was all very self-congratulatory and off putting. And... not particularly funny.
It's impressive that someone could go around the world and have so few interesting experiences on which to report. Only listeners who fantasize about dull and tedious travel on a cargo ship should bother listening to the tale of this pointless trip. Oh...and the trip was in 1987, so the whole thing feels very dated without being special.
I really object to the criticsm of the first reviewer that this is a book on faith written by someone without faith. This is an evenhanded and fascinating review, comparison and contrast of the three referenced faiths, in a very good lecture format. The last thing in the world that I wanted was to have someone preaching a particular point of view to me. If you want to hear someone "take sides," then go to church. If you want to become more knowledgable and intellectually stimulated, then listen to this book.
