Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review




Featured Review
"Each writer in the book lets us into his or her life for a brief moment, and this openness gives the message added weight, to the point that even the most curmudgeonly reader cannot help but be affected."—Scott Coffman, The Courier-Journal, December 2, 2011


Review

“The authors of these brief essays—everyday people, young and old, rich and poor—read their works aloud in their own voices, providing the listener with a more meaningful and touching listening experience.”
       —AudioFile [Earphone Award Winner]

This I Believe: Life Lessons is part of the This I Believe series, and offers the stories of people who are willing to share their most deeply-held beliefs, beliefs that they feel have become part of their daily living.

When Edward R. Murrow first began this series in the early 1950's, he contacted famous people and requested them to take the time to think about - and share with the world - something vital from their "personal credo." He asked for thoughts, not what schools or religions had taught people to respect, but what had evolved over their lifetime as being at the very core of their values.

This book focuses on people like ourselves who have also put a great deal of thought into their life values. Life Lessons is defined by Dan Gediman as "something we feel has altered us, great or slight, and after that moment we are changed." He believes we can learn from the insight these people share with us and perhaps begin to consciously consider some of our own life lessons.

I highly encourage anyone who is interested in pondering their personal philosophy to browse through this book. You can use the Table of Contents to jump around, or read it in bits and pieces as you're in the mood. The book would make a great gift for graduates, friends, family members - well, just about anybody. But first - gift yourself with a read.

I have given this book to the youth (teenage) I work with at
church. It is great as a graduation present because the lessons
are well thought out and inspiring.

This is a lovely book to have around on the nightstand or coffee table. A small hardbound book that can be picked up with inspirational essays to read during a quiet moment. My older (3-5th grade) children have also read a few of the essays and really enjoy the book.

If this book fails to inspire you to do a few (small or big) things differently in your life, then all I can suggest is that you read other books in the "This I Believe" series. Not every essay will speak to you, but I'm sure many will!

I chose this rating because the essays are highly needed lessons. A lot of solid philosophies was encrypted in the stories. Other stories were simply heart warming or funny.

Philosophy samples go a long way. Some hit home with the speed of an arrow. Others sink into soul slowly. Invaluable.
