5.0 out of 5 stars A Riveting Read On America’s First Ladies, April 23, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I admit that this kindlebook of First Women; The Grace and Power of America’s First Ladies by Kate Andersen Brower caught my attention after I had seen it available on Amazon and referenced (tweeted about) on Twitter. The positive is that this book covers much detail that could go in a future documentary such as: some of the first ladies that got along well with each other, Rosalynn Carter was initially shocked that first families have to pay for their own food, even the White House chefs were not always immune to the changes in leadership etc. Last, but not least, the mention of the infamous Monica Lewinsky scandal that put Hillary Clinton through a lot yet eventually brought her and Bill Clinton closer in their marriage. However, even as a Hillary Clinton supporter (for Hillary Clinton to be elected President in November 2016), I must refrain from saying too much more except to say that the whole situation was also complicated by Linda Tripp wiretapping what Lewinsky said without her consent and knowledge of doing so (theguardiandotcom article titled Monica Lewinsky’s Revenge by Julian Borger dated December 16, 1999).

Mad Women: The Other Side of Life on Madison Avenue in the '60s and Beyond
by Jane Maas
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Like The Mad Men Tv Series And/or Show An Interest in Public Relations/Advertising, April 23, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book Mad Women: The Other Side of Life On Madison Avenue In The 60’s And Beyond by Jane Maas covers both some facts and juicy details. For instance, Maas shares that David Ogilvy, who is listed to have been inducted into the Advertising Hall of Fame, worked as a chef for some time before working in the advertising industry. Additionally, the personal lives of some of her fellow advertising employees may make even the most open-minded people today blush as they see the details in this book. Jane Maas does not hold back when she mentions how some of the women went from secretary to copywriter in such a short time by effectively utilizing their feminine charms (to put it mildly/tamely) (page 29). Maas recalls a time where she even asked another female employee if they thought it was true that a lot of affairs/flings were going on at work and the employee diplomatically replied how did she think that she got her current man. She also truthfully shares that it was not unusual for women to have martinis during their workday. For instance (on page 95) there is mention of a secretary at Young & Rubican named Linda Bird Francke did at least admit to going to lunch with creative supervisor Bob Higbi and partake in a drink concoction called martini and Rusty Nails (combination of scotch and Drambui). Of course there is more in this book that I’m glad to have purchased.

5.0 out of 5 stars I’m Glad To Have Discovered This Book Via Twitter, April 23, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As many know, there is a plethora of articles online on how to cut costs as a way of repaying obligations such as student loans and/or building up a savings account. However, there are fortunately now more articles on extra ways of making money but I still would love to see more articles tailored around extra ways of making money whether a person is going the full hustle or side hustle route. Fortunately, I unintentionally came across Hustle Away Debt: Eliminate Your Debt by Making More Money by David Carlson one night when I saw it being featured in my twitter feed and I’m glad to have found out about it because of some of the following info: the pre-hustle checklist (page 39), one of the side hustles such as Caregiving & Senior Services (page 68), local side hustles (starts on page 107), and much more. Finding out about this book was important to me because I’m actually becoming more adept at saving money the longer I’m alive but I could use more sources on legal and legitimate income that can also be tailored to entrepreneurship and/or a side hustle, which I feel this book is an answer to my prayers on this concern.

5.0 out of 5 stars Things Are Different From As They Seem?, April 23, 2016
My husband actually indirectly influenced me to eventually check out The Night Manager as well as me seeing this tv series online. I’m saying this because my husband has shared that he has enjoyed the acting of Tom Hiddleston in both the Thor and Avengers films. Additionally, my husband has seen the House tv series starring Hugh Laurie and has introduced me to both the Blackadder tv series and A Bit of Fry & Laurie. Naturally, I expected to observe good acting from both of the actors (Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie) in The Night Manager and feel that both of them do bring out strong character development of each other. Tom Hiddleston plays the character of Jonathan Pine and Hugh Laurie as Onslow Roper. The first episode deals with Jonathan Pine trying to help a woman who was previously connected with Onslow Roper and risked her life to help indirectly save lives for the British government. Pine reaches out to Angela Burr (Olivia Coleman) for help and both of them discover how powerful Onslow Roper is. The Night Manager is perfect for people who like suspenseful, undercover, and/or spy-type television.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Portable Life Coach, April 23, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I admit that my discovery that even some of the most successful people (professionally) hire life coaches and/or advisors indirectly influenced me to get this kindlebook of How Quantum Physicists Build New Beliefs by Greg Kuhn. Some of the following details in this compelling kindlebook; changing your beliefs via meditation and thinking back to some of the most positive moments in one’s life, healing some childhood beliefs (such as it is not ok to get angry and/or basing one’s self-worth/self-confidence by their popularity/obscurity),giving oneself a safe space to be truthful with how one truly feels in regards to a not yet manifested chosen desire, and more healing sources of info.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spiritually Enriching Book, April 23, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This kindlebook of Walking With The Angels: A Path of Service (with additional commentary by Anna Hayward) by White Eagle is a great guide for people with an open spiritual mind. The book includes certain angelic qualities that correspond with certain ideas; putting oneself in nature’s lifestream (i.e. enjoying the outdoors as an opportunity to both anchor the physical body and grow spiritually etc.), the angelic qualities of humility and simplicity corresponding with Brother Francis, the angelic qualities of harmony and beauty-i.e. seeing beauty in unconventional places and/or even when others around a person do not, responding to the creative stream-i.e. connecting to the angelic kingdom through the avenues of music, overcoming lack of self-confidence to become self-confident etc. I’m grateful or my life and my amazing husband that I share it with, as well as having a wish to live until at least the year 2078 during my current lifetime. However, a book such as Walking With The Angels is important to me because books such as this remind me that things are not always as they seem in life and much joy and keeping a spiritual focus can also help one to integrate both the opportunities and spiritual lessons in life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual Protection Through Prayer, April 23, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I consider myself a lucky person whose life gets better each day that I’m alive but I still keep an eye out for books and/or information to help me grow spiritually. Intuitive curiosity influenced me to purchase the Spiritual Psychic: 4 Necessary Steps For Healers & Lightworkers to Protect Against Evil & Demons by Jayne Wallace for expanded spiritual knowledge. She includes a good amount of detail or such a strong book and emphasizing keeping a spiritual ideal in mind when partaking in spiritual work and/or activities (i.e. purifying the soul, creating increased beauty and love in one’s life etc.), powerful protection prayers, a house built on sand to a house built on stone etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Kindlebook Makes Me Want To Look Up Online if Harrod’s (In London)Also Has Psychics, April 23, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This kindlebook of My Psychic Casebook: The Amazing Secrets of the World’s Most Respected Department Store Medium by Jayne Wallace caught my attention because I’ve always sensed that even some of the most accomplished people professionally and financially speaking have consulted in psychics, astrologers etc, but a part of me obviously understands why this is not always publicly discussed in mainstream media. Anyhow, the kindlebook lists that she is affiliated with work involving Selfidges department store in London and the kindlebook lists info from some of the following; a system analysts client who mentioned about one of her sons who saw a family member who was making their presence known before a major life event, a story of another client whose parent came through but had to be careful about disclosing this to another parent out of sensitivity for their hesitancy to believe in afterlife communications, yet at the same time providing a message that they would financially bounce back in life, helping another client connect with their spirit guide, and more.
