    Story
    (21)

    For the first time, HRH The Prince of Wales shares his views on how our most pressing modern challenges - from climate change to poverty - are rooted in mankind's disharmony with nature, presenting a compelling case that the solution lies in our ability to regain a balance with the world around us. With its holistic approach, this provocative and well-reasoned book takes the discussion of sustainability and climate change in a new direction.

    Story
    Would you listen to Harmony again? Why?

    I almost certainly will, because it is a reminder of the philosophical underpinnings for my 20 year striving to live a sustainable life and respect the Earth and all her creatures.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As well as articulating a philosophy for the survival of the Earth and our species and others, I appreciated the descriptions of the various educational and environmental initiatives that so many people are undertaking. They were inspiring. Though I believe we have gone too far down our current path of greed and destruction to avoid catastrophe, it is a moral imperative for each of us to do what we can to reverse the headlong rush to destroy this planet that sustains us.


    Which character – as performed by Charles, HRH The Prince of Wales – was your favorite?

    Charles! He has striven for decades to improve the world, and has mostly been criticized for it. I admire his persistence.

    Story
    (12788)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I already have recommended it a few times. The book is just plain fun! Tina's navigation through teenaged theater, career, and motherhood resonated with me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tina, of course!


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

    No


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

    I was moved by Tina's obvious love for her parents and all of her family. But mostly, I was just moved to laughter and there isn't anybody that can't benefit from a good laugh.
