What a wonderful practical book jam packed with strategies to improve public speaking. as a pediatrician and ex-academic, I cannot believe we don’t ask speakers at our conferences to give Ted style talks. Instead of boring scientific data we need to make these memorable for true impact and promote remembrance. This gem is an awesome book. I enjoyed it very much and anticipate listening again for a refresher.

I absolutely love this story. So moving. Characters are rich and the story steeped in culture and tradition. The story unfolds and you are drawn in quickly. By the end I was in tears. It is a touching story of family, heartbreak, friendship.

What an autobiography—already told so many friends about it and shared this book. I could not stop listening and was riveted by the fact that the author was reading it herself. It felt intimate and was at times so moving I was teary. I have always loved Michelle Obama as First Lady. I learned so much about the story of her family and childhood that helped shaped her and President Obama’s time in the White House. I especially loved hearing her voice as a mother to her two girls.

Gripping tale that will hook you

This book was intriguing and chilling. I was hooked and could not stop listening. The characters were complex and the plot twists kept me going until the very end. All in all a story of family after the unthinkable happens. And a quest to know the truth. Good narration.

Wow. On the edge of my seat

This book was a rich story that continued to deepen the complexity of the characters I loved this one and the depth of emotions. I do not want to spoil it so instead will say if after the first book you felt books two and three dragged a little...this totally made up for it!

Enjoyed this book!

Another great story. I laughed and wondered as I listened to this audio book. I love France and dream of being almost French some day. So I appreciated Sarah's honest writing and sharing her insights as she navigated living in France and coming to realize how culture, language can clash but also come together in an imperfect perfect way. Caroline Lee is one of my favorite narrators and I always prefer books she reads! Great performance.

What an amazing story. I was so captivated by his story...from his childhood days to his professional career in soccer. What motivated me to listen to his book was the fact that is lives with TS. I welled up at certain parts of the book as he described what it was like to live with TS and ultimately go on to accept and embrace it. How he inspired so many children to let the tics pass through them and all those he has touched through his work with TS. He is an amazing person and a great role model.

What a beautiful and touching story. I was captivated by the backdrop of the London Blitz and the story of the two sisters whose lives changed on that day. I could not stop listening. If you are a fan of historical fiction I highly recommend this book. I let was my first by this author but I cannot wait to check out her other titles. The narrator did a great job with the performance and made it easy to listen to

Another outstanding example of a wonderful story with rich and complex characters. Ms Morton is a wonderful storyteller. The interweaving of stories between past and present is her hallmark and this one is one of my favorites.
