    An explosive, heartbreaking memoir from the widow of Mark Madoff and daughter-in-law of Bernard Madoff, the first genuine inside story from a family member who has lived through - and survived - both the public crisis and her own deeply personal tragedy. In this candid insider account, she talks about her idyllic wedding to Mark, what it was really like to be a part of the Madoff family, the build-up to Bernard's confession, and the media frenzy that followed. It is about the loss of the fairytale life she knew and the tragic and final loss of her husband.

    What did you love best about The End of Normal?

    I appreciated Stephanie's ability to be real and to not hold back details, nor emotion, when sharing her story. I'm grateful she narrated it, because I feel it made it more authentic and interesting. I was always eager to listen to more and was never bored.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The End of Normal?

    This most powerful moment in the book was when she revealed the details of her trip to Disney World with her daughter, on the day of her husband's death.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A love story turned into a tragic death.


    Any additional comments?

    This has been one of my favorite audible books, because it is REAL life, which is something I appreciate in a book and an author. Thank you Stephanie for your courage in sharing your story.

  • Spelling It Like It Is

    Tori Spelling is the first to admit that the "reality" behind her popular television show, Tori & Dean, isn't always real. Not even Star magazine could invent the true chaos that happens behind the scenes. Luckily, Tori is famously honest and self-deprecatingly funny when it comes to her personal life - she's always "Spelling it like it is". Tori here shares her stories, her biggest challenges, and more with the usual humor, candor, and down-to-earth charm that her fans love.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I wanted to like this book and Tori. I was hoping the 4 star review average was accurate, but I have to disagree. I think people who have been pregnant multiple times and are full time mom's might enjoy this book more than me.


    Has Spelling It Like It Is turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, i love celebrity memoirs.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I wish she wouldn't have discussed her pregnancies problems, hospital visits and bodily fluids over and over again. It was WAY TOO much for me. It made me think she was a hypochondriac needing attention from her family and her fans.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Spelling It Like It Is?

    The hospital visits!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure Tori is a good person, I just didn't vibe with her story.

    For many years, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s fans have wondered when he would write a memoir. Well, Wayne has finally done just that! However, he has written it in a way that only he can - with a remarkable take-home message for his longtime followers and new readers alike - and the result is an exciting new twist on the old format. Rather than a plain old memoir, Wayne has gathered together quantum-moment recollections.

    Would you consider the audio edition of I Can See Clearly Now to be better than the print version?

    This book inspired me the entire 11 hours! I love Wayn'e spiritual connection to the Universe and his incredible stories of synchronicity that have guided him throughout his life. I'm grateful he encourages people to be self-reliant and to listen to their soul's calling. His perseverance throughout his writing career is an enormous inspiration to me also. Thanks Wayne for your service to humanity!


    What does Wayne W. Dyer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Wayne's calm and engaging voice. Hearing him read the story of his life made the book more special to me than if I were to read it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Wayne's first book became a NY Times best seller! I cried tears of joy for him.

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.
