    The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.

    Mrs. Pearle G. Mintz says: "A book so wonderful I can't wait until I share it"

    Story
    Would you listen to My Beloved World again? Why?

    Yes, I probably will. The narrator spoke very good Spanish.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I, too, grew up in similar circumstances. With great dedication I obtained my M.D. Truly inspiring to note the results of continuing to follow her dream. I did not give marriage first place, as she did.


    What does Rita Moreno bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms Moreno speaks flawless Spanish and English. This was a perfect match for the author.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The section that dealt with her feelings and experiences associated with enrolling in an Ivy League School.


    Any additional comments?

    Wholesome, real. Her zest for life is contagious. Created near perfect ambience.

    Story

    In a family memoir that reads like a detective novel, Rhonda Noonan recounts her 30-year quest to find the truth of her own background - and what she uncovered will surprise listeners as much as it did her. Rhonda was born and adopted in Oklahoma, a state with closed adoption records. And, although she was cherished by her adoptive family, she - like so many adoptees - felt a burning desire to find and make contact with her birth parents.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fifth and Final Name: Memoir of an American Churchill?

    The general ignorance and recalcitrance of the court officials.

    Genuine, lasting life-change is the heartbeat of youth ministry but too few students experience it. Through a simple but revolutionary process of “mentoring a few,” dramatic transformation can happen in the lives of students—with benefits that spread throughout the ministry.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who is very slow to understand that he has been told the same idea six or eight times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its first 1.5 hours.


    Have you listened to any of Hewitt James’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no, i have not, but i probably will not seek others


    What character would you cut from The Be-With Factor?

    None,I wioujdl just stop repeating the same concept. Having more detailed examples of the "actual walk" would have prevented the story from getting old.
