‘Based on the NPR series of the same name, This I Believe features eighty Americans, many of them renowned contributors, which complete the thought that the book’s title begins. Each piece compels readers to rethink not only how they have arrived at their own personal beliefs but also the extent to which they share them with others.’
 
 
‘A trip inside the minds and hearts of a diverse group of people and the incredibly varied ways in which they choose to express themselves —reveals the American spirit at its best.’
 
 
‘As you browse through the table of contents, you will be struck by these popular figures as they become transparent and vulnerable revealing their most closely held beliefs. And yet, often it's the essays by the ordinary among us, the laborer, the abandoned, the teacher, the researcher with AIDS that will bring tears to your eyes and move your heart.’
