The poems are read by Keillor and a number of the poets included in the collection. Some are wise, some are funny, some are soothing or heartwarming. All were chosen for their wit, frankness, passion, and, in Keillor's words, their utter clarity in the face of everything else a person has to deal with at 7 a.m.

Very good, but. . .
I have three wishes: an unabridged version; a "chapter" break between poems [I listen with iTunes on my computer, and if I want to hear a poem over, it is difficult to navigate to the right spot]; and the title/poet named before each and every poem.
Very pleasant listen!! Highly recommended.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
It's very difficult to find out which poems are included, and no way to determine who reads it, without listening to the tracks which are unhelpfully labelled Chapter 1, Chapter 2, etc. If you just want to "let is play," you can find something to divert you, but good luck finding it again. To improve the experience, send a copy of the book along with the CD.
