Testimonials:

"I can honestly say when I was told I had to read this book for my college psychology class I was the opposite of thrilled. Well I would like to say I was wrong the second I read the first story I could not stop reading. I like the fact that this book does not focus on any one topic; it touches all topics, and does more than just one story per topic. I think this is a book that is a good read for anyone: students, teachers, parents, book clubs, or anybody." --CasperCate, student (posted on BarnesandNoble.com)

"Here are the observations and memories of a giant, diverse nation's citizens. In its sum, StoryCorps asks Americans to reflect upon their experiences, their times of travail, their achievements. In so doing, these individuals create an encompassing national narration: a people's hopes, fears and aspirations, all rendered poignantly to attentive listeners whose respect has enabled, finally, a presentation of a people's mind, heart, soul." --Dr. Robert Coles, James Agee Professor of Social Ethics, Harvard University
