I waited a long time for this to come out. I thought this was going to be more about herself and more inspiring, uplifting and inspirational, but it was not... it was a lot of history and so much about everyone else. There was no character in the narration it was hard to stay awake. I really wanted to like this book.

Entrepreneur Jesse Itzler will try almost anything. He brazenly pretended to be an established hip-hop artist to secure a meeting with a studio head - and it led to a record deal. He convinced a bunch successful business executives to invest in an unprecedented business plan - and it turned into Marquis Jet. He sincerely offered to run a 100-mile race in Spanx to get the attention of the beautiful founder of the company - and ended up marrying her.

Terrible, way too much cussing, and talk of marketing & sales etc. I think there is a way to get the point across without all the cussing.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

A North Korean ICBM crashes into the Sea of Japan. A veteran CIA officer is murdered in Ho Chi Minh City, and a package of forged documents goes missing. The pieces are there, but assembling the puzzle will cost Jack Ryan, Jr., and his fellow Campus agents precious time. Time they don't have.

A fair story but had technical gaps, which we would not seen had Tom Clancy authored the book. So a couple of spoilers here... First a reference to the US Air Force using C-141s; those have not been in our inventory for some time, probably about 15 years. I am sure someone can FAQ check that for us. In reference to the IED construction, why would you remove the fuse from a 105 round, replace it with a blasting cap when the intent is to fire the projectile? This makes zero sense. How about extracting individuals with a Predator UAV? I have to see that to believe it.
