Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Listeners have the opportunity to hear this fine compilation of interviews with extraordinary individuals conducted by various NPR personalities through the years. Each interview is given background in an introduction by the NPR interviewer who conducted it, but the interviewees ultimately speak for themselves, sharing their unique and absorbing stories. Those featured include renowned animal behaviorist Temple Grandin, a Bosnian teenager living through the siege of Sarajevo, and the gifted young pianist Emily Bear, among others. The inspiring, heartfelt, and enlightening interviews bring the listener into the daily lives and experiences of some fascinating individuals from diverse backgrounds. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
