The author made some very good points about marketing to our children, especially our girls. I wholeheartedly agree with her on training our girls to see themselves from the inside out and not from the outside in. I appreciated much of the research that went into this book, however I was a little turned off by the extremes of women's Liberation and feminist views. I would prefer the focus be on the ethics and morality behind raising strong capable girls. I believe that women and girls are more beautiful when they focus less on being equal to men as well as less on excessive beauty attainment.

Amazing story. Ms Smart is an amazing and resilient person. She shows how you can be grateful for many things even in the hardest of times.

I have listened to many books about the disgraceful time in our country when the south was full of slave owners. This was a good book about that time period. I did not like it near as much as "The Kitchen House" however. What was missing here was real depth to the characters. There's was a lot that was superficial and I wanted the author to develop them much more. Still I enjoyed it and became aware of a few side issues of the time that I had not really known about before.

Christine Carter does a beautiful job of helping you focus on what is most important. She also give you a wealth of advice and research on finding a truly fulfilling life. I am currently enjoying any improvements in my life by following her ways of creating micro habits to create a life of "ease".

This was a beautiful story that expanded my understanding of the blind, France in WW2, and the Hitler youth. Anthony Doerr is an excellent story teller with a very deep understanding of human relationships. Zach Appleman has a deep voice with an easy manner which brings the relationships and human thoughts to life.

Very well told true story. Enjoyed the reader. Lots of details about crew and rowing, but I enjoyed learning about something I didn't know before. Joe Rantz life was quite a life!

Although the story was interesting with good writing and suspense, I constantly longed to know the characters better. I never felt completely attached to any of the characters.

I loved this book. Excellent story, and readers are top notch! Each time I think I've loved a book so much that I might not ever like one as much again, I find one that is even better - this is that book.
