    You don't have to be controlled by difficult people! Strange as it may seem, other people are not nearly as committed to our happiness as we are. In fact, sometimes it seems like they’re on a mission to make us miserable! There’s always that one person. The one who hijacks our emotions. The one who seems to thrive on drama. If we could just “fix” that person, everything would be better. But we can’t fix other people. We can only make choices about ourselves.

    At the end of her best-selling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government....

    Nancy says: "Perfect timing"

    Would you listen to Committed again? Why?

    This is just the book I was looking for. Thank you Oprah for bringing this author to my attention. I have no desire to read eat, pray love, but this book is just what I needed. The author is inspiring, intelligent and enlightening.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Committed?

    The examples of how women who have chosen not to have families have been depicted as unhappy when in fact, statistics show that those women are often more prosperous and healthy than women with children and husbands. And in fact, it is men who fair better in marriage.


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

    So far, no, but I am now a fan.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. Chuckle at times


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to this book if you are a women and especially if you are a young woman.
