    This is a book about 10 "Great Ideas". Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world's civilizations - to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives.

    David says: "Exceptional synthesis of psychology and philosophy"
    "Jonathan Haidt is a genius"
    Overall

    I usually choose to listen to novels but I am so glad that I loaded this one up! I bought the book first but was having trouble finding time to read it (and, quite frankly, novels kept getting in the way) so I decided to try out the audio version. George Wilson brought this text to life and helped me see the genius of Jonathan Haidt. Understanding human relationships is a passion for me and this book has brought new insights to my search for wisdom. Highly recommended!!!

  • The Secret Life of Bees

    Sue Monk Kidd's ravishing debut novel has stolen the hearts of reviewers and readers alike with its strong, assured voice. Set in South Carolina in 1964, The Secret Life of Bees tells the story of Lily Owens, whose life has been shaped around the blurred memory of the afternoon her mother was killed.

    Jenna Lamia takes a great book and makes it even better. I have read this book, seen the movie and listened to the audio, but my favorite is the audio version. The textures of the voices Jenna created for each character are so distinct and realistic, I could practically see the faces of each! A real treat!
