About this book, quoting from the book's back cover, ". . .StoryCorps founder and legendary radio producer Dave Isay selects the most memorable stories from the StoryCorps collection, creating a moving portrait of American life. The voices here connect us to real people and their lives--to their experiences of profound joy, sadness, courage, and despair, to good times and hard times, to good deeds and misdeeds."

This was a short freebie from Audible around Thanksgiving (thanks Audible!) The StoryCorps Project is dedicated to collecting the stories of ordinary Americans for future generations. People participate through interviews by either a family member, friend, or a volunteer at the Storycorps booth in selected cities or in the mobile traveling booth.

This audio was only one hour of excerpts from some of the interviews. Hearing the stories in their own voices was very powerful and many moved me to tears. I didn't want the hour to end and would like to listen to the full length audio. Highly recommended! ( )

So-so collection of quotes that worked better on radio. By and large, the stories featured here are interesting however, most are much too short (being anecdotes cherry-picked from longer interviews). Having read several of Studs Terkel's books, I've come to expect more from pieces that are being presented as oral histories: to wit, a real sense of the subject, and a fuller picture of his or her life rather than just an isolated incident or two. Maybe that's understandable, given that StoryCorps' interviews are conducted by friends and family, but this is still a case of less is more (fewer pieces, but longer ones). ( )

I am a fan of NPR’s StoryCorps Project. Simply put, “StoryCorps began with the idea that everyone has an important story to tell.”

In this book, editor Dave Isay compiles some of the more memorable stories recorded in the early years of the project. They are moving, horrific, tender, funny, beautifully simple, incredibly complex, inspiring and loving. The stories are divided into five major sections: Home & Family, Work & Dedication, Journeys, History & Struggle, and Fire & Water. In relating their memories, hopes, fears, joys, disappointments and dreams those who have recorded their stories are leaving a legacy for generations to come.

Frequently this type of collection is best read a little at a time. Certainly that was my intention when I opened it up. I was half-way through another book and thought I’d read a story or two of this one each day until I finished. But I was so mesmerized by these vivid yet simply told stories that I had to tear myself away. I finished it in two sessions. I want more.

Really like this StoryCorps project, though the Alzheimer's pieces make me really sad. I love it that the stories of regular people are rendered important. ( )
