    Best-selling author Iyanla Vanzant recounts the last decade of her life and the spiritual lessons learned—from the price of success during her meteoric rise as a TV celebrity on Oprah, the Iyanla TV show (produced by Barbara Walters), to the dissolution of her marriage and her daughter’s 15 months of illness and death on Christmas day. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Iyanla shares why everything we need to learn is reflected in our relationships and explains the strength and wisdom she has gained by supporting others.

    Theresa says: "Iyanla is Inspirational! A GREAT LISTEN!!!"
    "Another book from Iyanla that taught me so much"

    What did you love best about Peace from Broken Pieces?

    I loved that not only was this the story of her own life lessons but that it was imbedded with spiritual wisdom and practical life advice that I can apply to my own life's journey. I never tire of her teachings and appreciate learning some of her history to how she became such a powerful and wise woman.


    Which character – as performed by Iyanla Vanzant – was your favorite?

    I love that she narrates her own books - you can feel that every word she speaks is important.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

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

    I would recommend this book to anyone struggling with finding faith and/or trusting in their higher power during difficult times. It's like a therapy session or in my case a quick reminder or pep talk to keep my faith and know that everything will work out the way it's supposed to and not to give up and throw in the towel. Very helpful.

    In her highly anticipated new book, brassy and beloved medium Theresa Caputo, star of the hit television show Long Island Medium, opens the door to her world and invites us to experience her exceptional gift of communicating with those who've crossed over to The Other Side. Combining Theresa's personal story, compelling anecdotes, and client readings, this remarkable book teaches us about Spirit and helps us understand the life-affirming messages that are sent to us every day.

    E. H. Gombrich's world history, an international best seller now available in English for the first time, is a text dominated not by dates and facts but by the sweep of experience across the centuries, a guide to humanity's achievements, and an acute witness to its frailties.

    Would you listen to A Little History of the World again? Why?

    YES. This is a book I could listen to over and over again because it's like watching dozens of movies all wrapped up into one. This could never get boring to me. Ralph Cosham's voice is so wonderful and his narration fantastic.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not know history could wow me this much. Each recounting of these historical events gave me at least one "WOW!". One of the coolest "reads" ever.

    What is the meantime? According to author and inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant, being in the "meantime" means being in a state of limbo. Rather than wallow in confusion, Vanzant encourages you to use the meantime to prepare yourself for true love. The first order of business is to clean house. Room by room, Vanzant takes you through a metaphorical cleaning of the soul. This way, when love finally comes knocking on the front door, you'll have a clean house to welcome it into.

    If you could sum up In The Meantime in three words, what would they be?

    Crucial relationship knowledge.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    I love Iyanla and I loved hearing her narrate her own book. She makes you feel like she's your best friend sitting beside you, holding your hand and loving you through your "stuff".


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That relationships need to be recognized for what they are and that there is nothing wrong with a "meantime" relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    This woman speaks directly to my heart and I am always enlightened and profoundly changed by her work.

    With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money 10 years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

    Where does Orange is the New Black rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked learning about the prison/corrections system through the experience of Piper Kerman and what her time behind bars was like. I found the cast of characters very interesting and definitely humanized "inmates" for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Cassandra Campbell's voice, tone and intonation is IDENTICAL to the one of the actress that portrays her on the series. I had to actually google her to make sure it wasn't the same person. I really enjoyed that neat similarity!

    In this brave and moving memoir, Corey Feldman is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

    What made the experience of listening to Coreyography the most enjoyable?

    I was quite surprised at how much I liked this book. Corey's story is not what I expected - it was tragic and heartfelt and interesting. I have a whole new respect for him and am reminded that we never really know someones story, no matter what we see or hear about them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    What did you love best about A Grace Disguised?

    I downloaded this book when I heard my Pastor mention it in a sermon last year. I was going through the beginning stages of my separation/divorce and was experiencing tremendous grief, sadness and pain. This book really validated my feelings regarding the whirlwind of emotion I was experiencing and helped heal my heart and help me understand the journey through ANY kind of loss. I would recommend this book to anyone suffering from a loss in their life. This book offers comfort through Jerry Sittser's own personal experience as well as his belief in God and the bible as well as other spiritual teachings. Definitely instrumental in my own grieving process.


    What about Tom Parks’s performance did you like?

    His voice and tone were very comforting and reassuring.


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

    I cried quite a bit. This book really touched my heart... it helped me acknowledge my emotions, validate them, sit with them and move through them with peace and understanding.
