Where does Wake Up Happy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Michael Strahan delivers a funny, family oriented story of his unique upbringing as a military brat, born in Germany and his assimilation into Black American culture, whether he understood it or not.As an Army brat myself, I appreciated and related to his experience and delighted in the life lessons he shared from his dad, his coaches and his life.

What other book might you compare Wake Up Happy to and why?

Shonda Rhimes book, Say Yes For a Year, provides her personal stories that help you see how different people can have such divergent experiences, yet accomplish huge goals when they adjust their thinking. Most of us need to do that, along our journey.

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

Michael's voice, laugh, humor and sincerity come through in his reading. It makes me want to listen over and over, without tiring of his message.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I took it with me and listened on my iPhone, as well as on my Macbook Pro.
