About time someone wrote a book about this and has facts to support (although I would have liked to have the research study notes)
It was very thought out, at times a little redundant, but the information is extremely valuable.

We all want to know what celebs are like in real life- she just points out the A-holes!

What about Kathy Griffin’s performance did you like?

She is real. Listening to her is like going to one of her performances, but easier and cheaper. She is a story teller by nature. .

It is nice to have my kid listen to it in bed with lights out. We still read but this is just imagination time.

August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school - until now. He’s about to enter fifth grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid, then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances? R. J. Palacio has crafted an uplifting novel full of wonderfully realistic family interactions, lively school scenes, and spare emotional power.

Where does Wonder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This would have to be on my top 10.

What did you like best about this story?

The book is amazing but the voice of Auggie did an amazing job! Great for kid road trips. Love this book.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not really sure.

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

I think my daughter and I both gasped a few times, but when Jack was talking about Auggie and didnt know it was him because it was Halloween or when he won the award at the end of the year.

Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

Integrative neurologist Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary discovered a beautiful side effect to the eating and lifestyle tools she gave her brain patients - shedding excess pounds. In this, her first book, she shows listeners that weight gain is a result of the body being in a toxic, inflammatory state. If your body is not prepared, or "primed", for weight loss, you will fight an uphill biochemical battle, and the odds of succeeding are slim.

Truly wanted to learn more on this subject. I was searching six sigma or lean for the home and this came up. I was impressed with authors work and was excited she had never had a Client revert back to old ways. It just started repeating itself midway. Not a terrible book but just needed more content.
