What would have made Finding Moosewood, Finding God better?
That's an awkward question because my answer is ... just, okay, fine, you got right with God. Great! Um, a lot of us have, okay? We just don't re-examine every minute of our life as a "before" and "after". I got the idea that Mr Perkins -- a face and voice I absolutely adored every single time he appeared on television -- was acutely shame-faced that he actually had a pretty good life BG ("Before God"). Resources, loving partner, kids, respect, talent ... yup, he did. <br/><br/>And I would probably comment on the impact, insight, "Aha!" moment of How My Life Was Changed When I Discovered God ....only I was stopped dead in my Audible tracks as I heard Mr Perkins's famous voice intone with barely concealed smugness the moments he wins his "Emmy" and murmurs his five words of gratitude ... oh, the humility, oh the stomach-churning humbleness! What gets me? He says it like he means it. Yeah. So. Well. <br/><br/>You know what? I absolutely consider myself a child of God. And, I have free will.<br/><br/>In an act of free will and because "I cannot take it anymore" (hint: "Network") I turned OFF my recording of "Finding Moosewood".<br/><br/><br/><br/>
Any additional comments?
See above. Oddly, I had a premonition from other reviews that Finding Moosewood would not be my cup of tea but soldiered on with the purchase because I used to love Mr Perkins quirky human interest stories. <br/><br/>Him! I want THAT Jack Perkins! Not this guy, the other one!<br/><br/>Sigh.

A very interesting read telling the stories of his life and how he came to believe in God. Also tells many interesting stories about his career at NBC and the history made in our land along the way. A very inspiring story!
