Publisher's Summary

Powerful inspiration for living completely and being happy, healthy and durable in an increasingly digital world. Captivating lessons featured in this gentle manifesto draw from the lives of fascinating people ranging from Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, to Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and biologist E. O. Wilson. The author's simple yet potent words, combined with engaging sounds and soothing music, will make you proud of all the powers you have that machines don't. Learn why being more durable will help you peacefully and successfully associate with technology, nature, and everything else. Parents who understand what it means to be durable will have the secret to unleashing their kids' unique talents and abilities so they'll grow up to be thoughtful, creative, durable contributors.
The Durable Human Manifesto on Audible is a family affair. Only a cup of coffee long, the book is narrated by the author, her son performs the original theme music, and her daughter curates captivating sounds from pond5 and freesfx.co.uk.
So, come on - get durable! You'll be glad you did.

Don't remember this. Found it in the comments section of an on line article I read.

What was most disappointing about Jenifer Joy Madden’s story?

Nothing, and feel the need to refresh myself.

How could the performance have been better?

This is in odd position, I want to stay up to date. Doing it now, will reflect and listen again.

Remember life before being connected 24/7?

Where does The Durable Human Manifesto rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I rank The Durable Human Manifesto at the top of my list of non-fiction audiobooks. The author's enthusiasm and passion for the subject reeled me in within the first few minutes. The music and sound effects compliment the spoken word nicely. Somehow it sinks in better....hearing the babies laugh and the waves crash.

Any additional comments?

I did not realize just how much time I spend looking at my iPhone or iPad or PC until I listened to this book. The real-life examples brought it home. I make a concerted effort now to make sure I turn all devices off at least a couple hours each day to enjoy a book, walk with my dog or have an actual live telephone chat with a friend or family member. This quick 25-minute-listen is well worth your time. If someone in your life spends more time with their nose in a laptop, smartphone or tablet, while life is passing them by because they never disconnect, this is the book for them. Can't wait for the next installment!
