I have found a cure for road rage. After following these simple instructions you will no longer feel the fury when highway traffic creeps sluggishly along and brake lights glow red into the horizon. You will welcome the sight of signs reading Road Work Ahead / Expect delays. Ok, I admit that was an exaggeration. However, if you take my advice and start listening to audiobooks in the car, you may find yourself enjoying the drive. My love of audiobooks began in graduate school. My commute wasn't just across town; I drove from Tempe to Tucson. Over the years, I have switched from cassettes to CDs to MP3s and I'm still listening.
This is a list of incredible, tragic and inspiring stories which kept my attention from beginning to end. Although the topics are each quite different, they share one common thread. These true stories detail human struggles and strengths that may seem unimaginable. If you're not a fan of nonfiction, you'll find these books may make you reconsider. Each story flows naturally like a fiction bestseller.
Items on this list will link to the book or eBook version of each title. To obtain audiobooks, search the catalog for the title and use the refinements on the left to select desired format type.
