Behind the Beautiful Forever" is a very jarring book about life in Annawadi, a slum located near the Mumbai airport, just steps away from luxury Indian hotels. This true story chronicles the lives of multiple Annawadi residents who struggle to survive and pray to get ahead in this god-awful community.
If you are the daughter of the parents that are Aging you must read this book . Medical science is designed to prevent us from doing that prematurely. But, sometimes, we need to step back and look at the meaning of the word "prematurely." When is it time to let go? When is it time to go full out? What is the meaning of quality of life?
I love how vulnerable she made herself when giving examples of her definitions. Shame is difficult to talk about, imperfection is difficult to talk about, being wrong is difficult to talk about; but, Brene talks about all of those things in a way that guides the reader to not only understand big concepts but also to see how they work in their own lives.
She's a master storyteller and teacher.
Not a book to be read completely in a single sitting, but a great one to simply stand back and digest each amazing chapter.How on earth, or in heaven, does she do it? Every time I re-read a chapter something new jumps out at me. It has been a joy. Thank you.
One of the best books I've read in a long time.
I have been a Coben fan for years. He hasn't disappointed yet!!
His ability to paint a picture with words to tell a complex story is amazing, Makes a compelling case for changes in financial markets in a way that the average investor can understand.
Matthiessen is the Master who paints with words and reveals an aspect of life that others
only experience when their eyes absorb that gulp of truth so clearly their heart will never be the same .
It is the story of a 1996 gathering of people at Auschwitz. They had come together to pry, meditate,
and contemplate on a deep lever the horrors that had transpired in this place.
The way everything is explained is so in depth and easy to understand. I look forward to implementing all the knowledge I have leaned from this outstanding book.
I had known the basic story of the Dreyfus affair for a long time. Harris has the wonderful skill of being able to tell this very complex and long story very effectively by following the path of one of the key players. His characters are real and one sees them quite intimately - in particular the hero of the story, Colonel Picquart.
The Invention of Wings:
We'll researched and well written. No idea how much fact was behind it til the afterward. We'll done! Enjoyed it.
I would have never read this book had it not been for the advice from someone I admire greatly. It was highly recommended as a spiritual experience....so I tried it.
