    Story
    "Every family should read (or listen to) this!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I not only would recommend this to a friend, I'm planning to buy several copies as Christmas gifts! Every family, especially those with young children, should own this book, and read (or listen to) it several times a year.


    What does Andy Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Mr. Andrews' voices for all the characters, but after listening to the audio version I decided to borrow it from the library in order to read it as well, and realized his emphasis in some areas was different than mine - which brought more meaning to the passages. Of course an author is going to know how he or she means for a particular scene to be interpreted, and listening to the author narrate the story makes a huge difference.

    Story
    "The Traveler's Gift"
    What made the experience of listening to The Traveler's Gift the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the story line of the book. It is very positive and uplifting. I like the idea of using historical characters to establish common sense thinking. It is always encouraging to see writers communicating strong moral conviction in a practical way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Traveler's Gift?

    I enjoyed the thinking involved in the conversation with Harry Truman the most. Making a decision to drop the atomic bomb is fascinating and feeling like you were a fly on the wall listening to his thoughts was really eye opening.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andy Andrews’s performances?

    I am afraid that I would not be able to listen to Andy Andrews read any other books. As much as I loved the book, Andy was really hard for me to listen to reading. I only finished listening to the book because I had promised a friend. I did enjoy the book, but felt like I would have enjoyed it more, if I had just taken the time to actually read the book.

    "Great Points, Okay Story"
    If you could sum up The Traveler's Gift in three words, what would they be?

    See Headline above.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Expected and predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the core, overall point(s), of the book was very good and applicable to life. It is very easy to listen to and understand. The story itself feels a little contrived at times, and Mr. Andrews narration took a little getting used to at the beginning.

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

    This books was a surprise to me. It was given to me to read by our owner group so I had no idea about the content. I was expecting another business related case study, but what I got was a fantastic story with inspirational characters. It approached the topic of professional development from a completely unexpected perspective. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to focus on personal development.

    "Great 7 decisions to live by."
    Where does The Traveler's Gift rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the better books I've listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the seven decisions. While they seem to be common sense, I believe they can be profound if we all lived life like this.


    What does Andy Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Andy is a great narrator. He brings a lot of energy to his characters and the story.

    "Life Transforming!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Traveler's Gift to be better than the print version?

    I bought this audiobook a few years ago after reading the book, and the other narrator was good, but to hear it read by the author, takes the book to another level. You get to hear the story the way it was intended to be heard, straight from the authors heart and mouth.


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

    The book itself can be simply life transforming if you're open minded enough to absorb the material.


    Any additional comments?

    This should be required reading in schools and for any liberal that think the government should be taking care of people from cradle to grave with entitlement programs.
