    "True To Life"

    I feel that Maya Angelous portrayal of her life is both shocking but real and that is a quality many authors lack these days. i feel my mind and my heart melting into her words when i listen to her work. She is a fantasic author, role model and fellow human being whose words should always be treasured.

    I am a poetic writer who loves the way words paint a picture. I love the spoke word. My dream is to write, speak, and inspire others now.

    "Free to live, think and experience wonder.."

    This volume by the experienced Grandmother of all is filled with wisdom, grace and beauty for the next generation. I was floored by the sheer rawness of her story yet I loved her softness. Her famous tone wrapped it all in velvet casing of love and concern. I am free to live, think and experience wonder in my unique skin.

    "Loving gentle guidance on life and self awareness"

    Beautifully written and masterfully told by a wise and sage soul. Easy listening and wonderfully loving guidance on life and self awareness. Teenagers, young adults and anyone struggling with mid-life crisis would be bless to sit at the feet of Mother Maya and listen with an open heart . The Lister will be entertained and taught very valuable and practical life lessons. You will find yourself nodding, smiling and laughing while you listen to this quick read. The book is over way too soon.

    Finding a sage in this day and age can be difficult or impossible. Dr. Angelou provides refreshing, humorous age old wisdom for those yearning souls willing to listen.

    "You won't listen to it just once"

    Brilliant in thought, candor and expression. Hearing Maya Angelou narrate it made me feel like I was hearing from a dear friend, one I wish I had had the pleasure to meet in person.

    Story
    "Deeply Insightful especially hearing from her!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now to be better than the print version?

    YES, YES, YES


    What other book might you compare Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now to and why?

    Well any other of her books


    What does Maya Angelou bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice gives you a clearer and cleaner window into her stories and experiences, it added meat to the already tasty pot.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A woman's map to learning about our simply complicated lives and enjoying every treasure we find along the way
