Law of Connection: The Science of Using NLP to Create Ideal Personal and Professional Relationships by Michael Losier
Law of Connection: The Science of Using NLP to Create Ideal Personal and Professional Relationships

hollyord, July 23, 2009

I am led to believe that this work was solely an attempt to generate income and had nothing to do with helping people communicate. It feels rushed, copy-pasted, redundant as a children’s book (see Johnny run, see Johnny play) and above all, the beginning of the book itself being used as one big NLP tactic against the reader was the biggest indicator of greed.

The Wilde Women
The Wilde Women

This book is entertaining, thought-provoking, hilarious, and eccentric. The writing style is impeccable; at times poetic. It takes place in Tennessee, circa 1920 after the historical stock market crash and focuses around two sisters who are bitter rivals and how an entire town is brought up out of the Great Depression by a whorehouse. It's a book that I have read numerous times and plan to read more times, it never gets old!

My Little Red Book by Rachel Kauder Nalebuff
My Little Red Book

hollyord, June 14, 2009

A girl's first period is something that every female remembers, but the topic is not widely talked about, which is what Rachel Kauder Nalebuff realized and wanted to put an end to. My Little Red Book contains 90 stories from women all over the world, including some names we've heard before, like Meg Cabot, Megan McCafferty, as well as Gloria Steinem's 1978 essay, 'If Men Could Menstruate' which I loved seeing published in this book! Nalebuff really celebrates females and their femininity and by giving the people in her book a platform to share their stories and to truly be open about their bodies. I loved this book, it was a great read but most of all, I love that all of the proceeds of this book are being donated to charity because there is a lot to be done as far as making the bodily functions of women something that can be widely spoken about.

Kinky Gazpacho: Life, Love & Spain by Lori Tharps
Kinky Gazpacho: Life, Love & Spain

hollyord, June 1, 2009

I absolutely loved this memoir; it was a simple and lightweight read that packed a punch of reality that is undeniable. I devoured her memoir in utter anticipation of what her next move in life would be and was overjoyed over her boldness and determination to uncover a black past in a country where most of its citizen were unaware of the world that had come before and still revolved around them. The only flaw with the book is that it leaves you wanting to know and experience more of her life and general thoughts. Kinky Gazpacho will bring you on a journey that is so much more than merely a life led by a woman who dares to open her mouth and question her surroundings.
