  • "Not at ALL like the series"

    Story

    I saw the series before I realized it was a book. After knowing there was a book, I excitedly hurried to Audible to download, I couldn't WAIT to start it! While this account of Piper Kerman's experience in a minimum security prison was extremely interesting and enlightening, it was NOTHING like the series. The only similarity between book and series is the fact that the main character's name is Piper. Just about every scene played out in the book never happens in the series and even the parts that match up, don't match up entirely. Even the characters are different, with the exception of Pop (in the book, Red in the series). I can see why though; the book, while very intriguing makes for poor TV drama. I enjoyed both the book and series, but the series was by far much hotter ;)

    With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money 10 years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

  • Women Don't Ask: Negotiation and the Gender Divide

    "Interresting subject, bad delivery."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    To begin I'd like to say that I believe that the disparity between sexes is a growing issue in the modern world. And the reason I bought this book was to learn ways I could negotiate better deals with women understanding more how they approach negotiation.

    I got what I was looking for, partially; because the author spends the first 2/3 of the book just talking about how bad the society views women when they take a more aggressive approach.

    After every point the author tries to get across she emphasizes it by giving example after example. It gets pretty boring after sometime since they are all the same. These examples could be very well be removed entirely from the book since it gets very repetitive and does not contribute at all besides filling pages.

    To save your time, go straight to the important part of the book; simply go directly to chapter 7. From that point onwards is the best part of the book

    However much of what the author says about negotiation is pretty basic stuff! If you are going to buy this book only to know more about negotiating, I would recommend skipping this one, even if you are a woman.

    First, let me say how exellent the narrator is. She made a research-oriented book come to life and remain interesting all the way through.
    The book had some unexpected, sometimes amusing, important, and always interesting findings that could be of benefit to everyone, women and men alike. It was very easy to listen to, and I would highly recommend it.

    Are boys and girls really that different? Twenty years ago, doctors and researchers didn't think so. However, an avalanche of research has shown that sex differences are more significant than anybody guessed. Gender differences are real, biologically programmed, and important to how children are raised, disciplined, and educated.

    The Sweet Potato Queens like men. They like them so much that they have devoted an absolutely inordinate amount of time to the pursuit of men, marriage, and great sex. And then, when that doesn't work out, they've devoted an inordinate amount of time to divorce, getting another man, and having great sex with him instead.

    A Room of One's Own, based on a lecture given at Girton College Cambridge, is one of the great feminist polemics. Woolf's blazing polemic on female creativity, the role of the writer, and the silent fate of Shakespeare's imaginary sister remains a powerful reminder of a woman's need for financial independence and intellectual freedom.

    The book that changed the consciousness of a country - and the world. Landmark, groundbreaking, classic - these adjectives barely describe the earthshaking and long-lasting effects of Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique. This is the book that defined "the problem that has no name," that launched the Second Wave of the feminist movement, and has been awakening women and men with its insights into social relations, which still remain fresh, ever since.

    Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

    In this contribution to the emerging men's movement, Robert Moore, a Jungian psychoanalyst and Douglas Gillette, a mythologist, examine the inner King - one of the four archetypes on the male psyche. The inner King integrates power and nurturing, firmness and caring, courage and creativity, self-affirmation and self-sacrifice. From his central position between the world of imagination and the world of action, the King within challenges every man to take up his own scepter, to dream and to make them come true.

    Every woman considers herself an individual. In vain, as regardless of race, ethnicity, profession, and so on, no woman is an individual. Every woman lives as man programmed her to live, as it is convenient for him, as he wants her to. Women do not even suspect who produces images for what they consider their "Self", and why. By studying the history of world culture, it is easy to trace that men usurped everything that had to do with images, as ideas for creation of anything.

    Women lost the "war between the sexes". Since the time of birth, women are being made into logs with legs spread wide, as an indication of their main purpose - to participate in the reproduction of the human race, and be pleasant toys in the hands of men. Most important is to not forget to tell women, who “love through their ears”, that they are wonderful, priceless, how much men love them and depend on them.

Was the cruelty of the assault indicative of something profoundly disturbing lurking beneath the surface? Sunny Hundal's arresting exploration of how Indian society treats its women argues exactly this. As a country, India has a disproportionate amount of men to women. They are financial and often social burdens upon their parents.

    A Room of His Own sheds light on the mysterious ways of male associational culture as it examines such topics as fraternity, sophistication, nostalgia, social capital, celebrity, gossip, and male professionalism. The story of clubland (and the literature it generated) begins with Britain's military heroes home from the Napoleonic campaign and quickly turns to Dickens's and Thackeray's acrimonious Garrick Club Affair.
