From the storytelling phenomenon The Moth, All These Wonders presents forty-five unforgettable true stories about risk, courage, and facing the unknown, drawn from the very best ever told on their stages. Storytellers share the ventures into uncharted territory-and how their lives were changed indelibly by what they discovered there. With passion and humor, they encourage us all to be more open, vulnerable, and alive.


I really enjoyed All These Wonders.  I was not initially familiar with The Moth, but once I started reading, I quickly became fascinated, and even discovered an online podcast to listen too. All of the stories in the book were beautifully told and very diverse. Each story very different from the next. They seemed to transport you through time. If you need an inspiring short story to read, then grab this book because there are 45 of them that are so passionately told. 

The book is a hardcover book and the cover design is beautiful. It's got an embossed moth in gold on it which alone is so fascinating it makes you want to pick up the book. The inside has thick pages and black dividers for each section covering different topics.  Would look great on a coffee table post read as well! This book would be enjoyed by most adults.
