Having enjoyed her radio show periodically, I thought I would enjoy this book. Sadly, after three chapters I gave up. She thinks and writes in an elliptical manner and almost seems to force in so many quotes from her interviews that I got lost. My advice would be to read the final chapter and if that makes sense and is good reading for you, then go back and start from the beginning. Otherwise, enjoy her podcasts!

I have enjoyed listening to Krista Tippett's podcast "On Being" for years. This book is a sort of "best of" with thoughtful questions and discussions organized in a beautiful, readable way. I filled pages with little tidbits and quotes I wanted to glean from this book...and quickly recommended it to many of my friends.

A series of essays and interview outtakes from the moderator of NPR's "On Being." Nobody listens better than Krista Tippett, her insights and engagement has produced a delightful and thoughtful series of distillations.
