Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Power of Meaning by Emily Esfahani Smith, read by Mozhan Marno.

There is a myth in our culture that to find meaning, you have to travel to a distant monastery or wade through dusty volumes to figure out life's great secret. The truth is there are untapped sources of meaning all around us: right here, right now. Drawing on the latest research in positive psychology; on insights from George Eliot, Viktor Frankl, Aristotle, the Buddha and other great minds, Emily Esfahani Smith identifies four pillars upon which meaning rests: belonging, purpose, storytelling and transcendence.

She also explores how we can begin to build a culture of meaning into our families, our workplaces and our communities.

Inspiring and full of contemporary examples, The Power of Meaning will strike a profound chord in anyone seeking a richer, more satisfying life.

    I am a middle-aged secular humanist struggling to find meaning as my life heads downhill. This book has given me considerable hope with alternative goals to pursue

    "Humble acts"

    I like the ending, how nicely it all comes together under the umbrella of love.
    I liked the calming voice of the reader.

    "Uninspired"

    It takes a long time to say not much and in the end concludes with the blinding observation that all you need is love. The Beatles managed that in 4 minutes.

    It's ok but you can use your credits better elsewhere.

    "Peaks early"

    I finished this today and can say that I found the first two chapters quite enlightening, and that the rest was just a bunch of interesting stories. I’m still glad I listened to it.
