    "Exploration of meaning of your life"

    Dr. Arrien uses her wisdom, stories, myth, and warm style to guide you through the process of finding meaning and purpose in your life. The Second Half of Life is a great guidebook for people in their mid-thirties and beyond. Dr. Arrien is a gifted story-teller, and she takes the time to explain the meaning of the stories she tells.

    "monotone voice"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I like what is said


    What did you like best about this story?

    everything


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    her voice is SO monotone it is really difficut for me to listen to more than 15 minutes at a time, I really want to listen to this because I like what she is talking about but this book should have been read by a proffessional, someone entertaining.


    Any additional comments?
