Inspiring and Amazing
I would have liked to listen to it all at once however time did not allow.
A Great Book! I would never have the courage to do what Cheryl did - hike the Pacific Crest Trail all by myself. Being a native Oregonian, I could visualize many of the areas that she highlighted in her book from Northern Califonia all the way to The Bridge of the Gods. Deeply moved by the loss of her Mother and the situation where they let her Mother's horse, Lady, go.
If you are "thinking" about reading or listening to the book, Just Do It. You will be thankful you did.
Change your Eating
It was not overloaded with statistics but gave enough stats to make the point.
Processed food has become the staple for most households. As I have tried to restrict carbs in my diet, this took it one step further to eliminating "wheat".
Some laughter but no tears
A good book and one that I would recommend that people read or listen to. It is very interesting the processing changes and how that has had an impact on health.
Having seen the movie - it was easy to visualize the book as I was listening to it.
The interesting dynamics of the families and the other individuals withing their community.
I love the different voices she uses for the different characters. It adds so much to the listening value of the book
It was already made into a movie which is what prompted me to listen to the book
It is a classic and well worth the time to listen to it.
This is a very heart warming book that gives you a completely different view of the events of 9/11
Roselle - the dog
When the attack happened - the overall calmness of Roselle was amazing. She never left her post and she never forgot her responsibilities for a moment.
This book will certainly give you a different view of 9/11 and it reminded me that we are only "handicapped" if we choose to be. Roselle was certainly an amazing dog and there were other amazing dogs that worked with the search crews to locate survivors and unfortunately, the deceased as well.
With Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee recently occuring, it was good timing for me to listen to this book. Simon Vance is a wonderful narrator and the information in this book gave additional insight on the Monarchy. I have not yet seen the movie and wanted to listen to the book prior to watching the movie anyway.
A wonderful view of history from a different perspective.
You already know the outcome - President is assassinated. Jackie remarries, lives great life, dies of cancer. Be prepared for the emotions.
