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

There was also a vivid cast of characters that was very much alive.

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.

I'll always have a special place for the earlier books, especially 'Anne of the Island', but nothing is unmatched to 'Anne's House of Dreams'.

I always have a certain problem when reading Anne books. Although I enjoy the plot and characters, I resent the melancholy, wistful feel to it everytime Anne goes into a new chapter of her life. There was the last chapter of the first book; 'A Bend in The Road', where the simple description and mood of the scene was so heart-wrenching that I almost cried. 'Anne of Avonlea' was just as sentimental as the previous book, with Anne realizing she cannot turn back time to when she was eleven. We, as readers feel the impact too. We have come to love each and every one character in Avonlea and we cannot stand to watch the years go by and be forced accept that the people are changing. 'Anne of the Island' cured that depressing tone slightly by bringing in cheerful college life but still retained the usual Avonlea village scenes into it. A romance brewing between Gilbert and Anne also helped distract readers from getting too upset about Anne growing up and leaving her childhood days forever. But nevertheless the proposal scene at the last chapter brought up those suppressed feelings out once again and left us smiling a bittersweet smile at the closing descriptions of the book.

But in 'Anne's House of Dreams', we are introduced to a whole new atmosphere. No longer is Anne running dreamily into magical forests and delighting in fairy brooks, listening to the whispers of the trees or playacting as a Fair Maiden with her childhood friends. The fairy-tale, static forests of Avonlea are replaced with a vast sea, salty breezes and spicy scents of seagrass in the air.
