Two-time Grammy Award-winner Maya Angelou performs her memorable fourth volume of autobiography, which began so auspiciously with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. The Heart of a Woman sings with Maya Angelou's eloquent prose and is filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous people, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X. Even more central is Maya Angelou's chronicle of the joys and the burdens of being a black mother in America and how the son she has cherished so intensely and worked for so devotedly finally grows to be a man.More

Yes, because to hear Ms Angelou's own voice makes it so much more interesting. If that's even possible.
This is very good listening. The reader (Dr. Angelou) pulls you into the book as if you were their. I am looking forward in listening to other books by Dr. Angelou.
I like best how I feel like I can visualize what is being said.
Dr. Angelou brings the story alive
