In Paul Newman: A Life, film critic and pop culture historian Shawn Levy gives readers the ultimate behind-the-scenes examination of the actor's life, from his merry pranks on the set to his lasting romance with Joanne Woodward to the devastating impact of his son's death from a drug overdose. This definitive biography is a fascinating portrait of an extraordinarily gifted man who gave back as much as he got out of life and just happened to be one of the most celebrated movie stars of the 20th century.

There is no way PN's life could have been boring and clinical. It's a shameful accomplishment that the author made it so in this book.

Adam rips parenthood a new one, telling it straight about what adults must do if they don't want to have to support their kids forever. Using his own crappy childhood as a cautionary tale, and touting the pitfalls of the kind of helicopter parenting so pervasive today, Daddy, Stop Talking is the only parenting book you should ever read.

Join author Tim Ferriss as he shares the incredible experiments he's done over 10 years to beat genetics and achieve the impossible…for himself and more than 200 men and women aged 18 to 70. You don't need better genetics or more discipline. You need immediate results that compel you to continue. This is an abridged edition.

What a chore. Maybe this book is better in written form, hearing" egcg", "phca", etc,.. over and over again without just telling us plainly and clearly what to do. This was so frustrating!
The PDF doesn't have anything on the exercises either, really? WTH?
I can't recommend this book to anyone who doesn't have the patience of a saint. It's torture.

The audiobook will explore Trump's view on key issues including the economy, big CEO salaries and taxes, health care, education, national security, and social issues. Of particular interest will be his vision for complete immigration reform, beginning with securing the borders and putting American workers first.

Great book, I feel like I have a better insight into Mr Trump.
I think I'd have liked the performances better if he had read it himself.

Ann Coulter is back, more fearless than ever. In Adios, America she touches the third rail in American politics, attacking the immigration issue head-on and flying in the face of La Raza, the Democrats, a media determined to cover up immigrants' crimes, churches that get paid by the government for their "charity," and greedy Republican businessmen and campaign consultants - all of whom are profiting handsomely from mass immigration that's tearing the country apart.

suffering in California because of both parties' policies. Ann is right and I wish people could get past their intense dislike for her to listen to these facts. immigration is killing our liberal values as well as conservative. it's truly a cause for all Americans to unite under.

Leah didn't hold back. She makes herself vulnerable in her book, which is so important in telling one's own story. I've never known anyone in Scientology, but I related it to people I've known in other cult like belief systems or abusive relationships. I'm glad I picked this one out.

Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.

this book was helpful in getting me started. I was always stuck with the beginning of the cleanup and knowing what to keep and discard. it really helped me with the anxiety of letting go.
