Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots. As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life's perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way.

Michael Singer recounts vividly his path through life living it as it arrives. Acceptance and surrender trump personal plans and preferences. The author demonstrates, through his own journey that peace and happiness are achieved when we cooperate rather than compete with what it presents us.

Having read 'The Untethered Soul' and put its sacred truths into practice during the most challenging period of my life, I can say without hesitation that Mr Singer's life of surrender is truly liberating, the essence of real freedom and the secret to unsurpassed peace.

Albie has never been the smartest kid in his class. He has never been the tallest. Or the best at gym. Or the greatest artist. Or the most musical. In fact, Albie has a long list of the things he's not very good at. And his parents keep reminding him of those things all the time...even when it's just by accident. But then Albie gets a new babysitter, Calista, who helps him figure out all of the things he is good at and how he can take pride in himself.

Would you listen to Absolutely Almost again? Why?

Yes, two of my boy's (12 and 10) insist on listening to it every time they get in my car.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Albie of course, he's terrific and Noah Galvin brings him to life.

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

I like those segments that contrast Albie's honest sensibilities with the other student's sometimes capricious conclusions. For example when Darren de-friends Albie for lying about being friends with Erlahn. Or when Albie is just trying to help Betsy "be cool".

  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

Would you consider the audio edition of Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen to be better than the print version?

Didn't read the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen?

I really liked the science behind the argument that humans are built for running long distances and the revelation about the damage runners suffer due largely to the shoe industry.

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

Although I've never heard Christopher McDougall speak, Fred sounded as if he could have been the author, he sounded the part.

Any additional comments?

I'm really glad I listened to this book. Running has always been my choice for cardiovascular exercise, but I had nearly reached the conclusion it was too hard on the human body. I have a new appreciation for the sport and feel strong and comfortable on the trail.
