    Novella Carpenter loves cities - the culture, the crowds, the energy. At the same time, she can't shake the fact that she is the daughter of two back-to-the-land hippies who taught her to love nature and eat vegetables. Ambivalent about repeating her parents' disastrous mistakes, yet drawn to the idea of backyard self-sufficiency, Carpenter decided that it might be possible to have it both ways.

    Story

    I can so relate to this book, but I live in a not so urban area. Novella pokes fun of herself and others who have tried to live this life and still be a part of the modern movement that we live in today. A must read if you have ever thought of doing the unconventional such as raising a garden, canning, or raising farm animals. This book is for you.

    You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and thrown in a blender. The blades start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do? If you want to work at Google, or any of America's best companies, you need to have an answer to this and other puzzling questions. Are You Smart Enough to Work at Google? covers the importance of creative thinking, ways to get a leg up on the competition, what your Facebook page says about you, and much more.

    I was fascinated by this book. It has challenged me to think outside of the box and think about what I want to do for my next fourty years. Great read- I also bought this in paperback as I wanted to redo some of the puzzles again.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Story

    This was not my fave book- not my fave author. He makes a few good points but I was expecting grandeur and new information, not stuff that you can learn from watching jury trials on tv. My feet are pointed to the door as I am walking away and not looking back at this novel any more.
