French philosophy professor Charles Pépin offers an astute meditation on how people develop confidence--in themselves, in the world, and in the value of relationships with others. To perform this poetic writing, it's hard to imagine a better choice than Peter Noble. His continental vocal rhythms are pleasing in themselves, conveying Old World wisdom and psychological groundedness; he connects with the author's emotional depth and humanitarian perspective. Humans, Pépin says, need emotional relationships with competent parents and mentors to develop confidence in themselves and to acquire a trusting and intelligent view of the world they must navigate. But they also need discipline--routines and rituals that order their lives and promote learning. These moving insights and Peter Noble's elegant performance make this a top-shelf addition to anyone's personal growth library. T.W. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
