Based on the NPR series of the same name, This I Believe features 80 Americans--from the famous to the unknown--completing the thought that begins with the audiobook's title. The pieces that make up the program--including essays by celebrity contributors such as Isabel Allende and Colin Powell; selections from the original 1950s series by Helen Keller and Jackie Robinson; and pieces by a man who serves on the state of Rhode Island's parole board and a woman who sells yellow pages advertising in Texas. The result is a stirring, funny and always provocative trip inside the minds and hearts of a diverse group who reveal the American spirit at its best.

Anyone would benefit from listening to this illuminating look at the beliefs that guide people in their everyday life. It includes excerpts from a project in which people from all walks of life share their personal views on what they believe about life. Originally it was a radio show that aired in the 50's, so some of the people sharing their beliefs are historical figures like Helen Keller and Eleanor Roosevelt. It is fascinating to listen to and is well produced. I was wishing for a volume II as soon as I popped the last CD out of my player

I liked the NPR program enough to listen to the wonderful entertainment continuously while driving.

This audio book offers personal philosophies and ideas. Quite entertaining, almost like a magazine version of an audio book.
