Deena Kastor was a star youth runner with tremendous promise, yet her career almost ended after college, when her competitive method - run as hard as possible, for fear of losing - fostered a frustration and negativity and brought her to the brink of burnout. On the verge of quitting, she took a chance and moved to the high altitudes of Alamosa, Colorado, where legendary coach Joe Vigil had started the first professional distance-running team. There she encountered the idea that would transform her running career: the notion that changing her thinking - shaping her mind to be more encouraging, kind, and resilient - could make her faster than she’d ever imagined possible.

I started running at age 50 and completed my first marathon at age 52. I am now 64 years old and completed 10 marathons. This book has given me the mindset and the ability to learn and I can do whatever I want to do if my mind is in the right place. Hats off to Deena Kastor.

Get out! Run! We must leave this place! They are going to destroy this whole place! Go, children, run first! Go now! These were the final shouts nine-year-old Kim Phuc heard before her world dissolved into flames - before napalm bombs fell from the sky, burning away her clothing and searing deep into her skin. It's a moment forever captured, an iconic image that has come to define the horror and violence of the Vietnam War. Kim was left for dead in a morgue; no one expected her to survive the attack. Napalm meant fire, and fire meant death.

I had a horrible time hearing the narrator. This is the first Audible book I couldn’t listen to. Voice did not project for my hearing abilities. Will have to buy the book.

In this brave, beautiful, and deeply personal memoir, Laura Bush, one of our most beloved and private first ladies, tells her own extraordinary story. She writes openly about the White House during wartime, the withering and relentless media spotlight, and the transformation of her role as she began to understand the power of the first lady.

I didn’t know what to expect when I purchased this book. The only thing I can say is that it’s the best book I have read in years. What a wonderful insight to a political family. I’d recommend this to anyone who would like to have a better understanding of the ramifications of living a personal life in a very public position. Kudos Mrs. Bush.

I believe this book will forever change the way I look at my life. Rabbi Kushner has brought a new prospective to me. I’m looking forward to reading another of his books. This book is for anyone, agnostic, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, it doesn’t matter. Let it sink in and hear the Word.
