    Story
    "Exhausting"

    While I like Jane her television show even though she can be a little preachy, she takes it too the extreme in her narrative. I found listening to this book exhausting and could only take it in little doses. I admire her for dealing with her demons and overcoming many obstacles she has obviously had in her life. However, in this book, she becomes overly dictatorial as to what others should be doing about making our lives and the world better and how we can do it. This is not why I purchased the book. I purchased the book to understand her life and the path she has led to make her the journalist she is today. I have to say the book was disappointing.

    Story
    "Not really what I expected"
    What made the experience of listening to iWant the most enjoyable?

    This was a biography of Jane focused on the character defects she was aware of in her life and how she overcame them. I enjoyed most of it, but I was particularly interested in the addiction areas of her life. She goes into a lot of detail about several other things that did not interest me.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have rather heard the story of the specific area of her life as related to the addictions. I actually skipped some chapters that I was not interested in.


    What about Jane Velez-Mitchell’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoy when this type of book is read by the author. When she refers to
