Publisher's Summary

A new collection of inspiring personal philosophies from another noteworthy group of people. This second collection of This I Believe essays gathers 75 essayists - ranging from famous to previously unknown - completing the thought that begins the book's title.With contributors who run the gamut from cellist Yo-Yo Ma to ordinary folks like a diner waitress, an Iraq War veteran, a farmer, a new husband, and many others, This I Believe II, like the first New York Times best-selling collection, showcases moving and irresistible essays.Included are Sister Helen Prejean writing about learning what she truly believes through watching her own actions, singer Jimmie Dale Gilmore writing about a hard-won wisdom based on being generous to others, and Robert Fulghum writing about dancing all the dances for as long as he can. Listeners will also find wonderful and surprising essays about forgiveness, personal integrity, and honoring life and change.Here is a welcome, stirring, and provocative communion with the minds and hearts of a diverse, new group of people - whose beliefs and the remarkably varied ways in which they choose to express them reveal the American spirit at its best.

Critic Reviews

"Each micro-essay stuns with its singular beauty, lucidity and humility. Icons like Helen Prejean, Studs Terkel and Elie Wiesel find estimable company in heretofore unknown writers who distill their individual truths with affecting sincerity and admirable aptitude." (Publishers Weekly)

A Worthy Sequel

I can't get enough of these wonderful little essays! The first volume was terrific, and this one does not disappoint. Not only does this give insight into the beliefs of those who contribute, but it also encourages the reader/listener to think about what they fundamentally believe. NPR did us all a favor in producing this series; Audible is to be commended for offering it!
