The author truly performed it.
700 Sundays as it is also a performance
It made me laugh and cry. Crystal touches your heart deeply.
His humor is so philosophical, not raunchy. He is a real icon to me in the world of humor.
The very beginning when Laura finds the words to comfort her son in his deepest suffering.
Just as it is--"How God Answered..."
I couldn't put it down. Afterwards, I searched for another book just as inspiring and so far, I can't find one that would move me as much as this one did. My problems I thought were so big in my life bringing up my children were "nothing" compared to the challenge Laura had to do. What a mountain she climbed day in and day out. This woman gave me a new perspective about suffering and triumph. I am humbled.
Yes. The stories are comforting and soothing for me.
Anne of course who does a beautiful job of narration.
I have listened to all of her performances and this one is the best.
Made me laugh and cry. Caused great introspection and contemplation about my own life and judgements I have about people and events.
A relaxing book that tells you a lot about Anne's life and that the beauty of her story telling is that she is joyfully and painfully honest, open, raw, and real. She enlightens one about God and Jesus whether or not you choose to believe. Her stories always leave me feeling good and thinking about my own life and choices.
I haven't read the book.
The amazing stories of enterprising women with interesting lives.
The authenticity and speed of performance.
Documentary of how older women dare to succeed.
An inspiring book if you think about doing something daring in your older years.
Jane of course, her life is interesting.
Yes, I read her first book and I like this one even better.
A documentary about the second half of our lives in this era and how society has changed; how people are being more productive in their older years nowadays.
A feel-good book if you need a lift.
Helpful to rethink how you prioritize your resources and work life
Time management with fresh ideas.
Pace was fine.
Pretty close. I stayed with it in several sessions until it was complete. It wasn't a long book and got to the point not wasting time which is what the book is all about.
I like all of Laura Vanderkam's books that reveal her research and findings about how people can spend their time and money more efficiently. There were new ideas she presented--at least for me.
I haven't read the print version.
The author who reveals much of her own successful work habits.
Many stories about individuals whose successful habits pay off.
No extreme reactions experienced.
I like all of Laura Vanderkam's books that validate the importance of women's productivity and how to get more out of one's work day with better focus and clearing one's plate of distractions and obstacles--the theme that runs through all her books and research. Insightful, inspirational, practical, extremely helpful.
The yin and the yang of the authors' lives and how their complicated marriage works in their family and work lives. It's invigorating and uplifting. Starts off medium paced and really picks up about a quarter of the way and gets more intriguing as it progresses. Nice ending.The authors have a colorful sense of humor that breaks up the tension.
Inspirational. The authors reveal how they cope with their work and family lives in a world full of turmoil and adventure. They are not the traditional couple as both partners are alphas and head strong. It makes for a delightful story and causes one to pause.
How James Carville has the attention deficit order and how his wife adapted when she finally discovered it. How Mary Matlin is an extreme alpha woman and how her husband adapts and appreciates her.
It made me think about my own marriage and family and how the September 2001 affected our society. I learned a lot about what it was like in Washington, D.C., at the time of the tragedy and how our government worked and coped. I learned about how dedicated people are when it comes to pulling together--individually and collectively.
to include more religious perspectives
no, not at all
While the philosophy is interesting and is applicable for therapists to use in their work, it wasn't for me seeking inspiration.
Would read again.
Her other books.
How to keep a time sheet on what I do with daily hours and how much time there really is when something is a priority.
You will never be able to say again that you don't have time for something. You will learn that you are the prioritizer of your life, and it is not about what you wish to do, but what you like to actually spend your time doing that should be on your list to do. Talk about zeroing in on one's core competencies and getting on with your productivity. If you are a woman who needs to clear her plate of obstacles and distractions, read this book. Self empowering. A good look at yourself in the mirror. And somewhat revolutionary as in, doing your children's laundry is not an act of love. Wow. I rethought my whole schedule when it comes to house keeping. I wish I had done things different twenty years ago. I never "got it" until now how remarkably underpaid and under appreciated household management and cleaning and other similar distractions are to the female gender. This book may wake you up and you actually might earn more money when you rearrange your time.
It's a good solid nonfiction, research oriented read. The most comprehensive book on every addiction that is fresh, believable, well researched and put together.
Perhaps his recent book on Ten Things That Addicts Know. I haven't read it yet.
No. It is full of heavy information and there is a lot to digest and take notes on if you want to follow up on any of his resources, websites, or research.
The Best book available on these subject matters. I wish I had known this information ten years ago when my kids and their friends were teens; I would have done things different. Talk about insight. Lawford shows how wrong this country is about handling addiction effectively in our culture of shame and persecution, and how we need to rethink our approach from parenting, to schools, to the mental health profession. I admire this author for his chutzpah. He doesn't hold back--we can't afford to not listen with a society in crisis when it comes to addictions.
