if this is a true book it's the heaviest book I've ever read its about a guy said he had a conversation with God and all the things that God told him about life and living and heaven and hell and everything else you were ever interested in so I highly recommend you read it and decide for yourself.

Would you consider the audio edition of Happiness as a Second Language to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version but I can tell you that the narrator on this audio book is very good and way above average.

What other book might you compare Happiness as a Second Language to and why?

I'd say if you like any of Martha Beck's works ("Steering by Starlight," or "Finding your way in a Wild New World," etc.) that you would like "Happiness as a Second Language" - while "Happiness...." is shorter than Beck's works, it's similar in that is it chock full of treasures of wisdom that will lift you up, put you on track and encourage you to live the best life possible.

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

Ms. Alexander's voice is genuine and comfortable to listen to...not irritating like some narrators’ voices. For those of you that have read a number of audio books you will understand what I mean when I say that you can tell she’s a real person. Her voice is neither rough or unpolished nor overly smooth and affected like so many narrators’ voices are. With that said, it seems unfair to judge any author's works by the quality of their narration.

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

I was very much moved by Ms. Alexander's honest and emotional introduction in which she tells about her "Evolution into Happiness". She started with the most difficult day in her life and described the turmoil she went thru in the weeks that followed. She finished with the story of how she came to write this book and her story of finding happiness that she so generously shares with all of us. Her honesty hit home with me and I'm sure it will do the same for you. It provided me with encouragement that I'm not alone in the world and led me to the recognition that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Any additional comments?

This is a great little book! At 53 I've hit that wall that I've heard about for so long - the Midlife crisis. I recently came to the realization that I’ve been in a rut for literally 20 years (scary). So in an attempt to not go down that hole, I've been reading a lot of books in search of a new perspective & direction. This book is the perfect start to that endeavor and I highly recommend it to anyone that is going through any kind of change. Or on the contrary, I recommend it to anyone who’s not going through a change but who realizes that it may be time for that very thing. It doesn't have to be a midlife crisis - this would be a great book for my niece who just graduated from university, my nephew who just got married and my dear friend who just found out she has Parkinson's disease. Really it’s a foundational book for anyone hoping to find joy in their little corner of this life. Read it- you won’t be sorry that you did.
