We Beat the Street: How a Friendship Pact Led to Success
We Beat the Street: How a Friendship Pact Led to Success
by Sharon M. Draper
Edition: Paperback
Price: $6.94
285 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory in every library collection., November 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I donate this book to http://www.booksfirstchicago.org which creates libraries in our city's most underserved schools, which are largely African American and in the worst neighborhoods. It is a powerful, inspiring and, most importantly, true story which speaks to kids living in similar circumstances. I also have persuaded our daughter's private school to buy multiple copies so children in this radically different socio-economic group have a clear sense of the struggles of so many other children in the same city.

3.0 out of 5 stars I was looking for something which would keep my essentials organized and easy to access, March 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I switch bags frequently from business to tote at home to gym bag. I was looking for something which would keep my essentials organized and easy to access. When I saw this item at a deep discount (it was under $50.00 at the time of purchase) and remembered that Tumi was considered I high end brand, I snapped it up.

Maybe I just don't understand the finer things in life, but I don't see the excitement about this product. It is a simple zip bag with multiple inner compartments in a pleasant color. And, it has a wrist strap. For less money than this, I am able to purchase a small bag from Baggalini which serves the same function for 50% less than this item.

I like owning a Tumi product, but it is because it is Tumi...not because Tumi is better.

2.0 out of 5 stars If dolls carried cell phones..., January 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This would be a perfect bag for them! This is tiny and flimsy. It might work well inside another bag, but it looks ridiculous on a grown-up!

1.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment!, January 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It seems strange to "hate" a product, but when a product ceases to work after 2 weeks and you have to return it, hate is the word! It did not pick up pet hair any better than my under $30.00 vacuum, plus it was unable to hold a charge for longer than 15 minutes even after being charged all night. I've always trusted Bissell products, but this one is a lemon.

1.0 out of 5 stars A $500.00 dust collector after just 6 weeks!, May 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used the Tria faithfully for three weeks, and noticed that progressively it took longer and longer to charge. At four weeks, charging took 24 hours. I've now had my Tria for 6 weeks, and it spends an average of 2 days in the charger to get 2 minutes of actual use.

A very expensive dust collector. Perhaps these are manufacturing kinks, but surely those should have been corrected before this product was sold via Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "double scotch" , not a lite beer!, July 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This should not be someone's first, second or third experience with an acid.

I've been using a Retin-A for over 15 years and have yearly facial laser treatments. My skin tolerates this very well for about 5 minutes, then I have to rinse it off several times and apply a light moisturizer immediately.

No problems, and it seems to produce the same result as a thorough facial (fewer apparent lines, no blackheads.)

But, you wouldn't give a first time drinker a double scotch..and you shouldn't start with this. A nice lite beer...a 10% peel instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars Way more than a "planner", May 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This isn't the typical Franklin/Covey, Daytimer, Planner/Pad style planner.

Those are straightforward approaches to daily time management.

This is a integrated life planning, goal planning syllabus for the woman who does it all: plans a day, manages a household, manages meals and still wants to have an intellectual, emotional, and community life.

I've been on the hunt for years (literally) for a planner which would reflect and manage the many roles I play and enjoy. This is the one and only planner which does so.

I sincerely believe if you stick to this system for three months, it will transform your life.

These aren't blank inside.

Instead the printed message is: Congratulations today and in the future.

So, appropriate for new grads...but how many of us know dozens of them?!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, but a nice tool for the stocked kitchen, April 25, 2013
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
For the every day cook, this is probably a product which will be used infrequently. I think most of us know how to chop vegetables (or fruits) and transfer them to a pan without a specially curved board.

However, if you are (or know of someone who is) the kind of person who has a special peeler for fruits (instead of just using a small knife), this is a cute little product.

3.0 out of 5 stars The good news and the bad news, February 21, 2013
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The good news: This is the best tasting protein bar in my long experience of tasting almost all of them.

The bad news: There is a reason that this is the best...it is high in both sugar and fat.

This is essentially a protein fortified candy bar...!
