On March 3, 2011, she performed at the TED conference in Long Beach, California as part of a series entitled "Beauty, Imagination, Enchantment. The poems themselves aren't very long, 3 pages at most and 3 lines at least, so this makes this book something you can definitely throw in your bag and read between subway stops or while waiting in line for your morning coffee.

I highly recommend this one, even if you are not fan of poetry, you will surely love this one in a heartbeat!I also feel that the stories she was telling were very repetitive and didn't grab my attetion enough for me to want to continue reading, which was a shame.
