RADICAL KINDNESS The Life-Changing Power of Giving and Receiving

by | Read by Angela C. Santomero, Michael David Axtell [Foreword]

Personal Growth • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

The creator and writer of popular children's shows like "Blues Clues" and "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood" believes that tiny acts of kindness make a big difference. Influenced by Fred Rogers's unwavering kindness, Santomero provides an interesting overview of compassion and judgment--toward oneself and others. She presents listeners with simple, helpful techniques to implement during difficult situations. The author's decision to narrate her own work is overwhelmingly distracting. Santomero seems to forget that her listeners are adults. She uses the slow, overenunciated, wide-eyed voice reserved for talking to very young children. It makes her advice sound trite, betraying her skills as a psychological researcher. Furthermore, her use of characters from THE WIZARD OF OZ and "Sesame Street" to illustrate emotions keeps the audiobook fatally anchored to the kid zone.
