Publisher's Summary

Based on the NPR series of the same name, This I Believe features 80 Americans, from the famous to the unknown, completing the thought that begins with the audiobook's title. The pieces that make up the program will compel listeners to rethink not only what and how they have arrived at their own personal beliefs, but also the extent to which they share them with others.

Featuring a star-studded list of contributors that includes John McCain, Isabel Allende, and Colin Powell (as well as pieces from the original 1950s series that included Helen Keller and Jackie Robinson), the collection also contains essays by a Brooklyn lawyer; a woman who sells yellow-pages advertising in Fort Worth, Texas; and a man who serves on Rhode Island's parole board. The result is a stirring, funny, and always provocative trip inside the minds and hearts of a diverse group of Americans whose beliefs, and the incredibly varied ways in which they choose to express them, reveal the American spirit at its best.

    "interesting and enjoyable"

    I enjoyed the way this book was set up. The essays were each read by the author themselves.(whenever it was possible) It contains a broad variety of beliefs, from serious to humerous. This book exposes you to many different opinions and leaves you considering what belief you feel most strongly about.

    "This I Loved!"

    Hooray for whoever put this out in Book/Audio form! I had heard some of the individual entries, but it is truly exciting to see these short essays put together in one piece. There are wonderful glimpses of the individuals featured here. It's inspiring and encouraging to hear these short philosophies of famous and not-so-famous people.
    This is something different and fascinating. Easy listening in the best possible way!
