"These quietly inspirational pieces convey her sense of life as an ongoing adventure." (Publishers Weekly)
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.
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.

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.
