    Chicago, 1920: Hadley Richardson is a quiet 28eight-year-old who has all but given up on love and happiness—until she meets Ernest Hemingway and her life changes forever. Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for Paris, where they become the golden couple in a lively and volatile group—the fabled “Lost Generation”—that includes Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

    Pris says: "Delighted in Del Mar"
    "A delight for Hemmingway fans"
    Overall

    If you've read Hemmingway, you'll find a this book of his life a poinient broken mirror in many pieces depecting many events from his novels in his real life through the eyes of his wife. Beautifully painted famous characters and scenes from Chicago to France among others!

  • The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

    Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.

    Roy says: "Very Informative Application of Positive Psycholog"
    "The Science behind Dale Carnegie"
    Overall

    This book puts compelling data behind many of the tools taught in Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People", focusing on Positivity.

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Michael says: "Mr Moore does it again."
    "HILARIOUS POTTY MOUTH SHAG HUMOR!"
    Overall

    GET READY TO LAUGH! As the opening line states, if you don't like bawdy tales full of wanking potty mouth shag humor, then don't read this book. But if you do, ge ready to laugh more than you ever have at an audiobook. Exceptionally well read and written with a mix of english cuss from a variety of milenia and locales.

    A small prison cell in India holds an 18-year-old penniless waiter from a Mumbai slum. But Ram Mohammad Thomas isn't a criminal. He is under arrest for correctly answering 12 tricky trivia questions on the show Who Will Win a Billion? Reluctant to part with the jackpot of one billion rupees, the show directors bribe the police to arrest Ram, accusing him of cheating.

    Ella says: "Highly Recommended"
    "Better than the movie, slightly less believeable"
    Overall

    I read the book first, and I believe it's even better than the movie. It is darker and the questions are much more coincidental than the movie's questions making them a bit less believeable, but actually more interesting.
