As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and then become an elementary school teacher - an ambitious goal, given her family’s modest means. Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even that dream out of reach, but 15 years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington, DC, to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws?
I didn't know just how special Elizabeth Warren is until I read this book. A go getter at an early age she gets the job done. whether you agree with her views or not, her life is inspiring and humble. What a national treasure.

In this, his first audiobook, Tony Hsieh - the widely admired CEO of Zappos, the online shoe retailer -explains how he created a unique culture and commitment to service that aims to improve the lives of its employees, customers, vendors, and backers. Using anecdotes and stories from his own life experiences, and from other companies, Hsieh provides concrete ways that companies can achieve unprecedented success.
If you could sum up Delivering Happiness in three words, what would they be?
Fun, inspiring and inovative.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Delivering Happiness?
Each turning point in Tony's life. I expecially liked how he started to give up so much of what he amassed when he begain to believe more and more in Zappos.
What about Tony Hsieh’s performance did you like?
I liked his calmness, but yet got to know him and understand the small changes in his tone and inflection. He did a great job,
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, it did more than that, it made me feel happy, it made me feel inspired, it challenged me to make changes that matter and to work on bringing happiness to others.
Any additional comments?
This book starts of slow and I about quit reading it, but felt compelled to keep going. I was glad I did, it really picked up and took off. It gave me hope that one person can indeed still make a difference.

When you think of what it will take to clean your house, are you so overwhelmed you throw up your hands and cry, "It's all too much"? If somewhere along the way you've simply lost the ability to keep your home organized and clutter-free, then It's All Too Much has the solution you've been searching for.
