While Toni Braxton may appear to be living a charmed life, hers is in fact a tumultuous story: A tale of personal triumph after a public unraveling. In her heartfelt memoir, the six-time Grammy Award-winning singer and star of WE tv's hit reality series Braxton Family Values is unapologetically honest in revealing the intimate details of her journey. Toni and the entire Braxton clan have become America's favorite musical family, but what fans may not know is the intense guilt Toni once felt when she accepted a recording deal that excluded her sisters.

Wish Toni would have narrated, her voice is distinct and loved and the story would’ve sounded so much better coming from her. Since Lived in Maryland for a while, I knew the narrator pronounced Bowie incorrectly and some other terms. I also think Toni should have included more about her sisters being on tour with her. Lastly a lot has happened since the book ended, including a Grammy after she wanted to retire. I want another book!!! This time Toni please narrate!!

I like the procrastination section of this book I thought it was in lightning and something I hadn't heard before. I also like that this book didn't tell you what to do or why to do it but it gave you the how, which is now.

  • Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for Non-Scientists, 2nd Edition

"It doesn't take an Einstein to understand modern physics," says Professor Wolfson at the outset of these 24 lectures on what may be the most important subjects in the universe: relativity and quantum physics. Both have reputations for complexity. But the basic ideas behind them are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. These dynamic and illuminating lectures begin with a brief overview of theories of physical reality starting with Aristotle and culminating in Newtonian or "classical" physics.

This was OK, the professor spoke very fast so I actually had to slow down the speed.
