5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, inspirational, and intriguing. What more could you want?, April 19, 2016
Let me start with a disclosure: I’m one of a vast group of women who greatly admire Myra Strober and who have benefitted from her friendship and support. My relationship with Myra was why I read the memoir. Her thoroughly engaging storytelling is why I love it.

The writing style is warm, informative and always entertaining. Her colorful descriptions make people and events come alive. It's a personal story, filled with success & disappointments, courageous acts and fears, decisive action and regret. Woven into the story is the history of the modern women’s movement as lived by one of its leaders. [Myra founded one of the first two centers in the US for research about women]. Young men and women will probably be surprised to see the challenges women faced in the middle to late twentieth century. Baby boomers will appreciate references to the politics, historic events and mention of songs and objects of days gone by. And everyone can enjoy Myra’s wit and wisdom.

Bottom line- it's a book well worth reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed, January 24, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A physician showed me how to use shea butter (with a little essential oil added) for a face massage. For the demo, she provided the shea butter which I was easily able to liquify by warming it in my hands.
Based on the Amazon reviews, I bought this product. It is hard- almost gritty- and does not become soft. Rubbing it in the palms of my hand had no affect on the consistency. Thinking maybe my hands were not warm enough, I held a mug of boiling water in the palms of my hands, hoping the added heat would help. It did not. The consistency remained like a thick paste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, September 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Overall the colander works as promised. The only disappointment is that it is a little smaller than I expected. I haven't measured capacity but it looks like it holds 2 cups, not 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bra for the money, September 20, 2013

It is true to size. Fabric is very comfortable and it dries quickly. Provides support without the uniboob look- so can use everyday as well as at the gym

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent service on warranty, May 10, 2012
I purchased a Square Trade warranty for a refurbished Kodak Zi8. Good thing I did. The camera developed problems about a year after I purchased it (although I had hardly used it). Bottom line- Square Trade provided me with a label to ship the camera back to them. Because the camera is no longer available- they refunded me the amount I paid within one week. I will definitely use Square Trade's warranty service for all future electronics purchases.
