Personal conversations, universal connections

If you could sum up Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel in three words, what would they be?

Powerful, fascinating, uplifting

What was one of the most memorable moments of Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel?

Esther: 'Ok, do you want to be right, or do you want to listen?'

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I haven't. Esther has a beautiful, soft French accent that provides a calm, safe space for the participants. You can hear the emotion in their voices too. Powerful stuff.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Every episode has a moment of connection, where - despite the particular circumstances of the couple's experiences - their fears and struggles resonated with me personally.

Mind blowing!

Would you consider the audio edition of Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel to be better than the print version?

I prefer the audible version of books. It makes me understand books better. I hardly read printed books. I have not this book in print either.

What other book might you compare Where Should We Begin? with Esther Perel to, and why?

The Examined Life by Stephen Grosz. This books also gives real life stories that I feel I can connect and understand. However, Esther's book goes even further by providing the true narrative of ordinary people. It is fantastic and so so so useful. Helpfult to all of us.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Narrative expressed by the person with feeling and connection

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I so wanted to finish this recording in one setting, but did not have time but got through so quickly. Now I feel bereft and I want to listen more.

Any additional comments?

Don't have too many boxes of questions! Put all in one:)
