    As medical director of the famed Preventive Medicine Research Institute, Lee Lipsenthal helped thousands of patients struggling with disease to overcome their fears of pain and death and to embrace a more joyful way of living. In his own life, happily married and the proud father of two remarkable children, Lee was similarly committed to living his life fully and gratefully each day. The power of those beliefs was tested in July 2009, when Lee was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Enjoy Every Sandwich distills everything Lee learned about how we find meaning....

    Can not say enough about this book. As a bit of a memoir, fascinating and gave me personally some sense of peace with the fates of us all. Mr. Lipsenthal narrating the book, only made it that much more poignant and heartbreaking at times, but also made it very uplifting. What an amazing character and spirit in this man, how he must be missed. I recommend to listen and then pass on the recommendation to all your friends, then listen again!

    Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last. Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact.

    As an adult it was downloaded as a light listen, but it did grow on me. I was strongly hoping for certain outcomes by the end of the book based on my like/dislike of the characters. I was actually sad when it was over as by that point I wanted more! I loved the narrator's voice and her ability to change the tone to distinguish between the characters. It did take a bit to get used to but once again it grew on me. I will certainly be checking out her other books, I liked the writer's style and I feel that her writing transcends age.
