NORWICH One Tiny Vermont Town's Secret to Happiness and Excellence

by | Read by Gabra Zackman

Contemporary Culture • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Award-winning sports writer Karen Crouse spent time doing research and interviewing folks to answer a puzzling question: How did the tiny town of Norwich, Vermont, produce a disproportionately high number of Olympic athletes? Gabra Zackman narrates the answers in six chapters, each of which is anchored by a featured athlete and a lesson. Each chapter begins with a themed insight such as "Grounded by Unconditional Support" or "Teach Your Parents Well." Zackman's reasonable-sounding voice enhances the audiobook's messages on the benefits of hands-off parenting, supportive communities, and encouraging grit and resilience in kids, making these practices sound appealing and digestible, especially to today's parents. Engaged, curious, and without a hint of lecturing, Zackman's reading style suits this book's purpose well. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
