Only another Stephen Colbert book can compare. He is one of a kind!
Ha! Well, Stephen Colbert. His style is just plain funny!
Jobs, Medication, Gold and Sh*t Brownies: Important facts about America
Funny, Hilarious, and Sad...but mostly, funny!
The narrator had a soothing voice and clarity of words. She did not distract from the content with her tone or inflection and I enjoyed listening to her interpretation of the writing.
Every part of this book is critical and connected.
I have not.
What everyone should know about crime, poverty, racism, and punishment in North America today.
This is one of the most important social justice issues facing our country today.
The readers voice is soothing...I might have fallen asleep if not for the content.
This book changed my thinking in ways I did not dream were possible. I have made what I once thought of as an impossible shift in diet and the benefits to my life are clear.
The whole book is beneficial.
The World Peace Diet was hard to listen to. Yes, there were times when I wanted to cry but I am grateful that I am able to be touched in this way.
I wish everyone could hear these words and think about what kind of world we want to live in. I know the world would become a better place.
This book is not easy to listen to, however, it is critical that we listen. The context gives the listener/reader the imperative opportunity to sit with the discomfort and consider what actions must be taken to make a difference. Surely the world cannot ignore the personal stories found in this work. As terrible as it was to hear at times, knowing the pure horror that so many endure must spur us on to stepping out of our comfort zones and making a difference. If that happens...that will be what I love most about this book. I am well on my way toward deep change myself...I hope to meet others there as well. Thank you to all the women who told their stories and thank you to the authors for seeing that their voices did not remain silent but that they can be heard here.
When my 14 year old daughter asked me to turn it off because it hurt her too much to listen. I was in pain too. We talked a little. I asked her if this kind of thing were happening in close proximity to her and she needed help would she want others to turn away because they just couldn't listen to her reality. She understands that we must be informed in order to know how to instigate change and take action...her empathy, sickness, tender spirit and awakening was my favorite moment...so far at least.
None...so far...not quite finished but the fact is the whole book is good.
Yes, mostly angry and sad...so far
