You won't be disappointed after reading Berkus's sweet, moving account of his experiences in NYC, Chicago, Asia and more. Very inspiring book. Really worth the money and time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary!, February 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Do Your Great Work! (Paperback)
Mariette is a gifted coach and she knows exactly how to motivate readers. What I like the best about the book is that the author has had tons of real life experiences both in big corporate America and running small businesses. This book will help anyone who is trying to make a leap from "ok" to "wow!".

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Photography But Not An Accurate Depiction of Cuba, October 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I gave 5 stars to this book because 1- the photography is pretty incredible and 2-it is very mind-blowing by and in itself that Michael Dweck was able to "infiltrate" himself in the very tight circle of the Cuban elite. It is also true that there's no freedom of almost any sort in Cuba. Most of the people live in the worst poverty and, as a country and society, Cuba has not evolved past the 1960s, which is horrible. However, I do give kudos to the author for portraying this part of Cuba is such a compelling way even if it's just for purposes of showing the world that there is a tiny group of people who live amazingly well and not according to Fidel's fake communist credo (which clearly does not apply to him or his family).

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, October 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Roman and Williams have designed some of the most iconic rooms of our times. The Boom Boom room is extraordinary. Their sketches which are quite intricate and detailed are simply out of this world. What I do not like is that a lot of the images seem dark, moody and gloomy. Maybe is because they use so much dark wood in their projects. That does not take away the fact that they are really good at what they do. It's always good to have a different perspective in the interior design realm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lush, October 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The pictures are lush and beautiful and the interiors breathtaking. What I did not like is that the copy is very short and the captions almost nonexistent. It's almost impossible to know where the pieces that Ms. Wearstler uses on her projects come from. Why the mystery? I'm interested in knowing that kind of information even if I'm not buying anything that's shown in the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mass market took away the magic of Novogratz, October 9, 2012
This review is from: Home by Novogratz (Hardcover)
Huge departure from the magic of their first book. Nothing fun, luxurious or surprising. It all seems to have been made to appeal to masses rather than offering a dream, an aspiration. Sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an extraordinary book that seamlessly combines healthy eating, entertaining and a wonderful story in New York and beyond, June 13, 2012
Cornelia Guest is an amazing author with a very interesting story to tell. She is not only the quintessential hostess, but also someone who is involved with charities and causes that protect animals and promote healthy lifestyles. She has brought a chic component to "vegan" and "ethical" in a way nobody else has done before. The recipes in the book are easy and delicious and Cornelia's stories are easy to relate to. This is definitely a new classic!

Muse and master. Love the amount of images and the overall sexiness ... Kate is so well captured by Mario and Mario is so inspired by Kate that the results are effortless and compelling. Bravo!
