Description:

A new collection of inspiring personal philosophies from another noteworthy group of people This second collection of This I Believe essays gathers seventy-five essayists-ranging from famous to previously unknown-completing the thought that begins the book's title. With contributors who run the gamut from cellist Yo-Yo Ma to ordinary folks like a diner waitress, an Iraq War veteran, a farmer, a new husband, and many others, This I Believe II, like the first New York Times bestselling collection, showcases moving and irresistible essays. Included are Sister Helen Prejean writing about learning what she truly believes through watching her own actions, singer Jimmie Dale Gilmore writing about a hard-won wisdom based on being generous to others, and Robert Fulghum writing about dancing all the dances for as long as he can.

Here is a welcome, stirring, and provocative communion with the minds and hearts of a diverse, new group of people-whose beliefs and the remarkably varied ways in which they choose to express them reveal the American spirit at its best.
