    Blending literature and memoir, Ann Patchett, author of State of Wonder and Bel Canto examines her deepest commitments: to writing, family, friends, dogs, books, and her husband in This is the Story of a Happy Marriage. Together, these essays, previously published in The Atlantic, Harper, Vogue, and The Washington Post, form a resonant portrait of a life lived with loyalty and with love.

    What made the experience of listening to This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage the most enjoyable?

    Feeling Of true conecfion between the author and narator !!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage?

    Specialy about her mariage Experience .Also all about Rose.


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

    When we read a book we hear our own voice(at least IDo)Listening to Ann's voice gives an additional layer and sense!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This book is a collection of eseys.It is in a sense many layers photograph. what tags from layer to layer is a person. In each layer we know more about it and relate to it diferently, maybe more deeply?


    Any additional comments?

    I heard of Ann Patchett listening to a podcast of Binah(San Francisco Jewish Comunity Center) and listening to a Bob something interviewe. I want to listen to all she has written. And will in the future.I like simplicity and a flow of her words and this atitude of putting it down, writing and forgetting about it.

    Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities - emotional intelligence - that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

    Stephanie says: "Good info, hard to listen sometimes"
    "well read !! Fascinating"
    Overall

    Well and interestingly read !! Possibilities of listening more slowly vary helpful.The issue of the book is interesting,vary important for one to know and understand and see himself through it.I took endless notes while listening and took many details to heart.I will be listening to it again soon !!

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Scott says: "A true guide for life"
    "well spoken and read !!"
