あらすじ・解説

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Power of Meaning by Emily Esfahani Smith, read by Mozhan Marno.

There is a myth in our culture that to find meaning, you have to travel to a distant monastery or wade through dusty volumes to figure out life's great secret. The truth is there are untapped sources of meaning all around us: right here, right now. Drawing on the latest research in positive psychology; on insights from George Eliot, Viktor Frankl, Aristotle, the Buddha and other great minds, Emily Esfahani Smith identifies four pillars upon which meaning rests: belonging, purpose, storytelling and transcendence.

She also explores how we can begin to build a culture of meaning into our families, our workplaces and our communities.

Inspiring and full of contemporary examples, The Power of Meaning will strike a profound chord in anyone seeking a richer, more satisfying life.

Brilliant insights

I am a middle-aged secular humanist struggling to find meaning as my life heads downhill. This book has given me considerable hope with alternative goals to pursue

Good book, but from a very Western Perspective

This book concerns itself more with the white western existence and lack of meaning that the modern lifestyle creates.

Not much use for the non-white, immigrant or "other", whose meaning is in part derived from our low status within this (western) society.
We see life very differently wherever we are and subsequently nearly never have to ask this question.

Nevertheless a good educational book with 1st class narration.

Humble acts

I like the ending, how nicely it all comes together under the umbrella of love.
I liked the calming voice of the reader.

Uninspired

It takes a long time to say not much and in the end concludes with the blinding observation that all you need is love. The Beatles managed that in 4 minutes.

It's ok but you can use your credits better elsewhere.

Wonderful book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Power of Meaning to be better than the print version?

It is wonderfully read.

Any additional comments?

This book is a real gem. Packed with clear and far reaching ideas. Get it.

Peaks early

I finished this today and can say that I found the first two chapters quite enlightening, and that the rest was just a bunch of interesting stories. I’m still glad I listened to it.

The Power of Meaning

I just loved this book . I do have one regret about the book and it is that I didn't read or hear this book earlier in my life. I have recommended it to my three children.

It will provide you with many different perspectives!

I have this book for more than 3 years now. The first time I've listened to it it brought me some very interesting ideas to ponder. Today I've finished it again and it was worth it. It made me think about my life in the past, since I've last listened to the book, from my experiences. It's a good book, with interesting stories and a pleasent narrator.

Informative and Inspiring

The author skilfully brings together philosophies, study results and many peoples personal accounts, into an easy to understand and inspiring book.

This book is factual and well referenced throughout, providing so much more than just a 'self help' book.

A good book makes us think for a while, a great book changes us. I am changed from 'The Power of Meaning'.

Truly fantastic book, very highly recommended

I decided to listen to this book after hearing Emily Esfehani Smith's TED talk and wanting to know more about the four pillars of meaning. The book delivers so much in terms of thought-provoking ideas, fascinating research, compelling stories of real individuals' experiences and practical ideas to apply to one's own life to cultivate more meaning. It was so refreshing after being inundated by the 'cult of happiness' in so many other books. Plus, the narrator has a soothing, sensitive voice that is just a joy to listen to.

A genuine life-changer.
