Betty Ford: First Lady, Women’s Advocate, Survivor, Trailblazer is the inspiring story of an ordinary Midwestern girl thrust onto the world stage and into the White House under extraordinary circumstances. Setting a precedent as first lady, Betty Ford refused to be silenced by her critics as she publicly championed equal rights for women and spoke out about issues that had previously been taboo - breast cancer, depression, abortion, and sexuality.

I didn't know much about Betty Ford until listening to this book. I had no idea she'd done and gone through so much. Our lives are much better today because of her honesty and her bravery. Thank you for sharing these stories of a wonderful woman.

With a career spanning more than five decades, few actors are more qualified to recount the glamorous Hollywood era of the late 1940s and early 1950s than Robert Wagner. You Must Remember This is Wagner’s ode to a bygone age, to its incomparable style and how it was displayed, and to its legendary stars.

Pitching is about persuasion: radiating positivity, controlling the situation, winning an audience's trust, creating "fierce agreement", and getting them to want to give you what you're asking for. Written not just for a business audience, You Get What You Pitch For will approach the pitch as what it really is: a methodology for building productive, positive, mutually beneficial person-to-person interactions.
