One of the best.
No comparison, this story was real people telling bits of their life-memories!
No not yet
Absolutely and I did.
Can't wait to hear more of his interviews.
no - it's a one time listen
The acts of love program is outstanding - this was a 1 hour of tears and smiles. enjoyed!
Smell the flowers - be aware of the bees - enjoy the rain that waters these.
You see, you are going to be downpouring tears of incredible joy. You won't be able to help yourself. In fact, I dare you not to. And if you do not cry, you just might not have a heart; best see a doctor.
This was a great collection of 3-5 minute stories about people's lives. I was so intrigued I looked up their web site and was happily surprised I could listen to other stories on the website. I immediately sent a web link to all my friends and family. I laughed, I cried, I had a roller coaster ride of emotion during this short hour of time. This incredibly moving collection of conversations, recollections, tributes, and memories are from ordinary - extraordinary people. God bless the StoryCorps, and all of the beautiful stories it is collecting. What a treasure. And best of all, it was free.
Real people telling real stories. Nothing compares.
And Merry Christmas to ya-all!!
One of the most enjoyable audiobooks I've heard so far.
It is so touching to hear these stories from all sorts of different people. One on the stories perfectly resonates with my own experiences.
It made me both laugh and brought tears to my eyes.
This makes me want to find a location to take my own relatives and collect their tales.

"Listening Is An Act of Love" was one of the most moving audio-books (and books) that I've ever read. I really enjoyed the fact that these stories were about real people in real relationships as families and friends, and not just about romantic relationships only.
Despite that I loved most of these stories, some of the stories were a bit too moving, and a bit too heavy for me. Most likely, they triggered some of my issues, lol.
If you enjoy a good true-to-life story, then you'll love this audio book many times over for the many many great stories it tells.

I downloaded this because I knew what Story Corps was from NPR, and it was free. I have re-listened to it several times. The sincerity of the speakers absolutely permeates the experience. I'd give the ratings 6 stars or more if I could.

The opportunity to peer into the lives of real people by listening to their own voices explaining their own stories is incomparable.
Short and sweet reviews, Allentown pa
This is terrific, Hearing this just changes your prospective fast.
I can't believe we can have this free.
You will feel every emotion imaginable.
tell one complete story instead of clips
I liked that you can basically tell your story and they'll store it for you.
All of the stories were good.
heartwarming, loving, informative.
I liked the grandfather in the first story as I often wished I had thought to do more in depth interviews with family members while they were still with us. The grandfather's story was very touching as was the grandson's reaction.
I have never listened to anything by him before.
This was my first foray into the Freebies offered. I hope they are all as wonderful. The Story Corps is a marvelous project.
