Publisher's Summary

What’s a "driveway moment"? It’s when you’re so captivated by a story you’re hearing on NPR that you stay in your car to hear it to the end - even if you’re sitting in your driveway with the motor running. For years, listeners have written to NPR to describe such moments. Now animal lovers especially will want to make sure their tanks are full.

Heard on All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Talk of the Nation, and Wait Wait - Don’t Tell Me!, hosted by Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep, these stories will make you laugh out loud and shed a tear or two.
