Book cover of The Rider

The Rider follows the life of a newly homeless man living in Manhattan. After taking refuge in the subway, he encounters one of New York City's many rats. This rat, however, has both extraordinary intelligence and a deep sense of compassion. Before long, the rat not only becomes his friend and protector but also saves him from a life on the streets. The rat, something hardly noticed in society, serves to show that goodness and wisdom can be found in even the smallest of creatures.

Both young adult and adult audiences will appreciate this heartwarming tale of redemption and kindness. Myriam Berger's emotional narration of Miller's evocative storytelling makes this standout audiobook perfect for those who love stories but may be reluctant to read.

The Rider will especially resonate with audiences that enjoy a wholesome, feel-good story. While the story is about a rat, an often overlooked, despised animal, making an outsized difference, the underlying message can be applied to overlooked people, overlooked situations, and more. As the author would put it, 'For a giver, one does not need to be great to do good. For a receiver, be open as help may come from unexpected sources. Let us not judge others too quickly.'

The Rider: Help from an Unexpected Source is available for purchase on, Google Play, or wherever books are sold.

Jeff Miller is an author and software engineer. Throughout his life, he has lived in both Manhattan and Silicon Valley.
