5.0 out of 5 stars More than Fortune Cookies. Brilliant read peppered with anecdotes, cultural and historical insights to migrant Chinese Cuisine, August 23, 2011
The title is a little misleading as it's so much more than the research on Fortune Cookies and the religion, it's filled with wonderful cultural, historical anecdotes about the ingenious Chinese migrants who made their way illegally all over the world to set up Chinese restaurants. Lee goes on an excursion all over the world to find the best Chinese restaurant outside of Greater China and there's also a funny chapter solving the mystery of General Tsou's chicken and how dishes like chop suey are just American inventions of Chinese food."

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant short stories spiced with cultural insights, July 24, 2011
One of the best short stories collection I've read in a long time, every story leaves you wanting more. I loved the anecdotes and details of how closely knit the Indian community is wherever they travel and settle. Also, the aching sense of poverty and loneliness of the unmarried or widowed Indian women in their society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Perspectives on Growing a business in the long run, July 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great case studies and interesting perspectives on "slow culture" and pop culture, hiring the right, intuitive people to balance out the office quotient of sometimes over practical and goal oriented managers. Here's a book on long term goals and growing the business in the long run--the rising importance of the role of a "Chief Cultural officer"

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for spoon feeding fresh grads wanting to land a job, June 12, 2011
It's a very easy read with short chapters and bullet points, but for anyone with work experience in the retail/marketing luxury industry, nothing in this book is new. Would definitely recommend it to recent marketing fresh grads or interns looking to find a job in the industry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light, easy reading, June 12, 2011
While an interesting glimpse into the life of a food critic, it was slightly repetitive with no particularly funny anecdotes and most inevitably Australia centric. Also reinforces the stereotype of bad tempered chefs and abuse in the kitchen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Cultural Window into Chinese Habits, June 12, 2011
Doesn't tell me anything I don't already know. Great book for foreigners as a window into Chinese language and culture, but pretty much useless for anyone who reads and write Chinese and is culturally in tune with Asian traditions and manners.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dry repetitive writing with nothing new, June 12, 2011
This book is a waste of time and difficult dry reading. The first 5% has the author going on and on about herself and credentials. Nothing written in the first few chapters is any news and probably a book suitable for my recently internet literate Mother. It doesn't tell social media folks anything they don't already know. Found it dry, boring and repetitive with old case studies.

Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things
Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things

3.0 out of 5 stars Superficial Look at Things, April 8, 2011
While certain chapters with specific case studies were interesting, I felt like the book was written for the sake of it, rather than really having something to say. It lacked a core and as a result was not tight and concise like what I had expected the book to share. I also didn't feel like it gave the reader any idea of 'remaking the way we make things'... only superficially raising points of what isn't sustainable and ecological, with case studies as illustrations. So, where do we go from here? It doesn't tell us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun filled anecdotes and tips, March 9, 2011
This was a gift from one of my fashionista friends in his bid to help me dress better and doing away with the laziness. Tips are mixed in with Garcia's funny anecdotes of childhood, her fashionable mother and her own wardrobe. An entertaining and easy read, with tips to take away on dressing and shopping better!
