Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Personal Development, 2014

The legendary Dolly Parton shares for the first time her deeply held philosophy of life and her heartfelt hopes for everyone. Based on the hugely popular commencement speech Dolly Parton gave at the University of Tennessee that became a sensation, Dream More is a deeper and richer exploration of the personal philosophy she has forged over the course of her astonishing career as a singer, songwriter, performer, and philanthropist.

Using her speech as a jumping-off point, Parton explores the four great hopes she urges us to embrace: Dream more, learn more, care more, and be more. She culls examples of these values from her own life as illustrations, from growing up poor in the hills of eastern Tennessee to her experiences as the iconic performer she has become today.

Written by one of the cultural legends of our time, Dream More is a poignant and uplifting anthem for all who want to take charge of their lives and forge a future on their own terms.

Dolly Does It Again!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Dream More to be better than the print version?

The audio edition is absolutely flawless and indispensable. Dolly Parton is the narrator so not only do you get to hear Dolly's story but you get to hear her words the way that ONLY she can deliver them. If you know anything about Dolly Parton, you know that she is an inspiration and and entertainer. She laughs, she jokes and she even SINGS on this edition. Now, you KNOW she ain't gonna be singing in the hardcover edition! (Ya, I said ain't).

What other book might you compare Dream More to and why?

This book is along the line of Dolly Parton's first book, "Dolly". She speaks to how her life inspired her to be who she is today. The difference is that Dolly uses this opportunity to help you get more from your life and move forward into YOUR future dreaming big and working to make those dreams come true.

Which character – as performed by Dolly Parton – was your favorite?

Dolly (performed by...well...Dolly).

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book definitely made me laugh and cry. Wait til you hear Dolly talk about how she wants to die. Yah, she really does. I laughed out loud in public. There were also many moments that struck home, made me think hard about my life and ultimately made me cry.

Any additional comments?

If you're reading this review because you're trying to decide if you want this book, let me make it easy for you....YOU DO.

Integrity and values

This book is one of the most down to earth and straight forward books I have listened to in a long time. The fact that Dolly narrates it is a huge bonus. She speaks from the heart and is not afraid of who she is and you get the feeling that she is speaking directly to you. Her humor and honesty make you smile and understand her world. I have listened to it 3 times now and each listen brings something different. I would recommend this book to anyone whether in business or not. Dolly is the original proof of never judge a book by its cover
