About the Author:

Marian Wright Edelman is the founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund. She is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Measure of Our Success: A Letter to My Children and Yours, and eight other books. She is the winner of many awards for her work, including a MacArthur Fellowship, the Albert Schweitzer Humanitarian Award, a Heinz Award, and a Niebuhr Award. In 2000, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Robert F. Kennedy Lifetime Achievement Award for her writings. Edelman is a graduate of Spelman College and Yale Law School. She and her husband live in Washington, D.C., and have three children and four grandchildren.

From AudioFile:

Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund, uses three distinct tonal qualities for the three sections of her work. In the brief introductory section, the autobiography, her pleasant alto voice is matter-of-fact. For the second section, a letter to her sons, her tone is often sharper, more quickly paced and forceful. In the third section, the twenty-five lessons, her "words knock on the houses of our souls." Here the rich variety in tone is emotionally evocative. Her voice never distracts from her meaning nor interferes with the importance of her message. This is a valuable listening experience which can well be heard again and again. M.G.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
