This compassionate, personal, and illuminating work of nonfiction draws on the author's celebrated work as a director of socially conscious theater to connect listeners with the power of an ancient artistic tradition. For years Bryan Doerries has been producing ancient tragedies for current and returned servicemen and women, addicts, tornado and hurricane victims, and a wide range of other at-risk people in society.

A thoughtful work that has definitely left me with a lot to think about. The interplay between theatre, philosophy and psychology is novel (to me at least) and compelling.

Lively narration by the distinctive Adam Driver, whose reading of the book kept me interested until the end.
