The author of THE CELEBRATION OF DISCIPLINE offers selected chapters of his 1994 book, this time read by a professional. The writing is packed with cultural and historical references that sound pasted together, at least in this recording. The result is a work that makes sense to the mind but largely falls short of engaging the heart and soul. Listeners can decide whether it's the writing or the reading, especially if they've heard the author or Tom Parker narrate audio productions of Foster's other books. Somewhere in this writing there is wisdom and inspiration, but in this audio you have to wade through what sounds like intellectual overachievement to get to it. T.W.
