Khalil Gibran's classic story of the advice given the people of Orphalese upon the departure of their beloved teacher. As poignant and delightful a listen as ever, certain to inspire your higher self.

"In a distant, timeless place, a mysterious prophet walks the sands. At the moment of his departure, he wishes to offer the people gifts but possesses nothing. The people gather round, each asks a question of the heart, and the man's wisdom is his gift. It is Gibran's gift to us, as well, for Gibran's prophet is rivaled in his wisdom only by the founders of the world's great religions. On the most basic topics--marriage, children, friendship, work, pleasure--his words have a power and lucidity that in another era would surely have provoked the description "divinely inspired." Free of dogma, free of power structures and metaphysics, consider these poetic, moving aphorisms a 20th-century supplement to all sacred traditions - as millions of other readers already have."

The Last Prophet
I would compare this book to The New Testament, but it is a modern version based on faith, love, and friendship.
Mr. Smiths performance was not a distraction.
A very good book.
