Joined at the Heart : Former vice president Al Gore and his wife, family advocate Tipper Gore, consider family their bedrock. Now, in this provocative and personal book, they explore the myriad ways in which the family is being redefined. New economic pressures, profound cultural changes, and rapid demographic shifts have fundamentally altered the way we live our lives. But if American families can no longer rely on many of the traditional landmarks by which they formerly steered their course, they are finding creative new ways to define, enrich, and honor their commitment to this most essential of all relationships. As they explore the changing nature of the contemporary family, the Gores introduce us to a variety of families they have come to know over the years. They share personal stories, explore issues such as communication, money, play, and resilience, and provide invaluable insight into the ways families are responding to daily challenges. Ultimately Joined at the Heart demonstrates that, in the face of unprecedented change, our fundamental need for family is stronger than ever. Abridged on 5 compact discs. Read by the authors.
