Coleen Marlo narrates this intelligent personal growth book with the directness we associate with the author, the hard-driving founder of the online newspaper The Huffington Post. Marlo's performance asserts and reinforces Huffington's powerful insights with reassuring confidence. This satisfying blend of personal sharing and wisdom feels precious and ancient. Instead of burning out striving for power or financial success, the three legs of her Third Metric (well-being, wisdom, wonder) direct us to get off our treadmill, quiet the mind and body, and learn the joy of service to others. Coming from such a prodigious achiever and read with such appealing authority, these are truths that overstretched listeners will savor and want to bring into their lives. T.W. © AudioFile 2014
