Publisher's Summary

Two celebrated statements about the experience of being human.

Kahlil Gibran was Lebanese by birth but spent a major part of his life in America in the early part of the 20th century. He wrote many collections of stories with a wise or whimsical tone, but none more popular than The Prophet, his first collection, or The Wanderer, his final anthology.

Perfection

Where does The Prophet & The Wanderer rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

Top.

What other book might you compare The Prophet & The Wanderer to and why?

It has little comparison. Perhaps a sage Walt Whitman.

Any additional comments?

This is a classic for a reason. I have been reading it since I was 20. It is wonderful to have it in audible form. Listen over and over and over. The Prophet is sublime and helpful in today's world. You will not be disappointed.

Thought provoking, compassionate and wise

This book was recommended to me years ago. I have since bought several copies as I have passed mine onto others. I was surprised to learn that this was a relatively modern author; Gibran wrote with such timeless eloquence, compassion and spirituality. The Prophet contains small chapters on Love, Joy, Work,Children and more - each provoking new insights that have that genius ring of truth, at once simple and profound. Buy this now
