Review

"Dan's book provides a cogent set of building blocks for becoming an effective leader. If you master his Art of the Possible, your desired outcome for any action or activity you pursue will not only be possible, but probable." -- Brent Armstrong, EVP, Performance Results Corporation

"The Art of the Possible: Create an Organization with No Limitations provides the reader a proven primer for success. This isn't your ordinary business tome; it is a profound statement of what is necessary to build and sustain a world class organization. Read it, follow it - it works" -- Edward V. Garlich, Jr., Founder/Senior Managing Director, Washington Research Group

"Dan Jacobs' book is a treasure trove of insights, concepts and ideas that every aspiring manager should come to understand, appreciate and practice. The book is laced with lessons and experiences articulated by a remarkable array of corporate, government, sport leaders and even philosophers. The only possible weakness of this terrific text is that the reader cannot enjoy seeing and hearing Dan's persuasive, personable and powerful presentation of the fundamental and essential insights and suggestions presented in this book. It is a must read." --Timothy J. Waters, Partner at McDermott Will & Emery --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Admittedly, Anne's House of Dreams IS a pretty good book. Anne and Gilbert finally get married (FINALLY, after we've been waiting for the last four books) and go to Four Winds Harbor to spread their wings. They live in a cute little "house o' dreams" (hence the title) and meet all sorts of new people: Captian Jim, Miss Cornelia, Leslie, Owen Ford, etc., who are all, by the way, wonderfully characterized, as is L.M. Montgomery's signature.
The only real problems that I had with this book was that it had lost the flair of the other "Anne" books, and wasn't quite ready for the mischevious tinge that the following books, which are mainly about the Blythe children, bring with them. Like I said, kind of a bridge between the real Anne books and the books about her kids. I also missed the presence of the Avonlea people like Marilla, Diana, Mrs. Lynde, and so on. But for the most part, it met my expectations. You've got to remember that it had some pretty high standards that it's predecessors had set to live up to.

I return to this book in the "Anne" series perhaps more than any of the others. Each re-reading uncovers a new delight. This book encompasses the first years of Anne and Gilbert's married life, spent in the seaside town of Four Winds Harbor.
I can't decide which character in the book is my favorite. Maybe it's Cornelia Bryant, outspoken but good hearted, whose rants about the uselessness of men accompany her ever-present needlework. Or it could be the beautiful, heartbroken Leslie Moore, whose natural intelligence and vivacity have been dulled, but not extinguished, by a series of tragic life events. Or maybe it's gentle Captain Jim, who captivates the Blythes with his tales of world travel, sea adventures, and the lost love of his life.
The book contains an interwoven medley of incidents large and small, joyous and sad, culminating in the revelation of a spectacular truth that has a powerful impact on the major characters.

In this book, Anne and Gilbert are finally married, and are starting to build their family. They move away from Avonlea, and meet some new friends.
I consider this book to be the last book of the "Anne" series, since the following books in the series are mainly concentrated in her children, and Anne is just a minor character. Even though they are very charming, and each one has his or her "Anne - ish" side, they are not Anne, I feel as though this is a farewell to Anne. I like this book because in it, Anne has managed to maintain her "magic"- she might not make as many mistakes while cooking or baking, and might not lose her temper at a passing neighbor, and her hair is not as red as it used to be but she is still the same Anne in spirit - passionate, romantic... With her quick eye for romance, she manages to attract the people who would easily supply her with an abundance of it in many froms - both tragic and comic.
The only thing I didn't like about this book is that by moving away from Avonlea, we lose many of the characters we had grown to love through the years - Marilla, Diana, and many other acquaitances, and of course - Green Gables itself..

1,000 words can't describe how much I love this book. This book is where after agonizing along with Anne she finally gets married to Gilbert. They settle into a place called Four Winds. Through the story of there first years of marriage they experience their joy over Jem their first born and the pain of losing a child. They make life long friends that are as pleasant as Diana Barry and Rachel Lynde. L.M. Montgomery makes the charecters come alive. They go through things that we can relate to today. Her excellant writing makes this easy to read whether you are 10 or 100. I highly recommend that if you enjoy this book you need to read the first four books. Then there is three more books. If that isn't enough there are two movies. I hope that you enjoy this series as much as I have.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love Anne but I've always felt that L M Montgomery's depiction of her degenerated in the later books. Anne was happy having children but I don't believe that meant Anne had to sacrifice all her dreams and talent to the altar of Gil and children (not to mention Susan). I hated how Anne would constantly put herself down. It is almost as though L.M. Montgomery was saying that girls could not have it all. It's awful how Anne would say things like "I had wonderful dreams when I was younger, but I'll never make Who's Who", or how she never even made an attempt at writing Captain Jim's life-story, saying something like "I know what I can do, I can only write fairy stories.....", which implies that it was beyond her. Anne topped the batch in English at Redmond and her talents in her youth were prodigious. It is cop-out for Montgomery to have condemned Anne to life as a doctor's wife in a provincial town. Her creative potential was never fulfilled.

Format: Paperback
"Anne's House of Dreams" is my least favorite of L. M. Montgomery's novels in the Anne of Green Gables series, which does not mean it is not a first-rate novel. For me, I guess it was a bit anticlimactic for Anne and Gilbert to finally get married, especially after it took three novels for the Anne girl to admit what everybody else knew from the start, that Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe were made for each other. But then I read the books in the order they are numbered and not the order in which Montgomery wrote them, in which case I would have skipped "Anne of Windy Poplars" and would therefore not have been bothered by all that time between the engagement and the wedding.
In this fifth Anne of Green Gables novel the newlyweds move into their House of Dreams and start their life together. For the first time Anne is more of an observer than a participant, as the two main characters of the book turn out to be the storytelling Captain Jim and the tragic but romantic figure of Leslie Moore. The most fascinating part of the novel is that the only way you can tell Anne is about to have a baby is that she stops going outside and Marilla shows up (and I have to admit I was shocked, shocked I tell you, that her son's first name is James rather than Matthew). Perhaps no other aspect of Montgomery's work gives us as good an indication that she is writing about another time.
After this volume the emphasis will be more on Anne's children and their friends than our beloved red-haired orphan, so "Anne's House of Dreams" is very much a transitional book in the series. As she becomes an adult and starts living a grown up life, Anne Shirley becomes less interesting to Montgomery than the children (and in "Rainbow Valley" the interesting ones are even the Blythe kids). It is nice to say that if this is the "low" point in the series, then other writers should be so lucky with their high points.
