"Rock legend Tina Turner begins and ends this audiobook with a powerful recording of her chanting. While moments from her life illustrate her path, her story focuses on her fifty-year practice of Buddhism. Narrator Adrienne Warren's tone is open and generous as she delivers Turner's teachings. Through tragedy, abuse, and health problems, Turner found strength in Buddhist chanting. Warren is especially suited to deliver Turner's audiobook, having played her on Broadway. Warren's voice is even and soothing, radiating so much positivity that one can often hear her smiling. Turner's coauthors, Taro Gold and Regula Curti, read an afterword detailing their spiritual relationship with her and how they helped the 80-year-old icon share her knowledge of Buddhism. A pdf glossary offers a refresher on the more academic aspects of this inspirational guide."
