This is an audibly pleasant and accessible way to benefit from Kahlil Gibran's universal and timeless wisdom. A pleasure to listen to.
I've always loved the book, but this audio rendition really brings Kahlil Gibran's masterpiece to life. I appreciate the thoughtful "voicing" of this literary icon.
