StoryCorps founder and legendary radio producer Dave Isay selects the most memorable stories from the StoryCorps collection, creating a moving portrait of American life.

The voices here connect us to real people and their lives—to their experiences of profound joy, sadness, courage, and despair, to good times and hard times, to good deeds and misdeeds. To read this book is to be reminded of how rich and varied the American storybook truly is, how resistant to easy categorization or stereotype. We are our history, individually and collectively, and Listening Is an Act of Love touchingly reminds us of this powerful truth.

    " Could not put this book down. Ordinary people make this country great and their stories show their courage, loyalty, compassion and determination. It made be proud to be an American. It also made me start to tell my stories. Thank you Mr. Isay and the StoryCorps Project. "

    " This is a very interesting idea. StoryCorps has recording booths that travel the country. People are recorded telling their memories or doing interviews. The recordings are categorized (for this audio book) into similar themes or time periods. There are people who tell stories of what it was like to be in WWII, natural disasters, and to lose a loved one on 9/11. There are also just people who want to tell about their life. The stories in this book are very moving and well-told. "

    " I'm a fan of the StoryCorps Project, and I really enjoyed this compilation of stories from ordinary people. Each story is from one to four pages and includes photos and brief details about the people who recorded the story "
