    • How the Wild Effect Turned Me into a Hiker at 69: An Appalachian Trail Adventure

    This is a terrific audiobook. It's interesting, well-written, and timely. It's the story of a textbook editor who retires, reads the popular book The Wild Effect and decides to hike the Appalachian Trail - and have an unexpected adventure! The tone is wry humor, tongue in cheek - the author has a great sense of humor, is perky, and as she learns in this adventure, is often in over her head! She is a very likeable character.

    In 1915, when a kitchen stove fire singed his sister Mabel's lashes and brows, Tom Lyle Williams watched in fascination as she performed what she called "a secret of the harem" - mixing petroleum jelly with coal dust and ash from a burnt cork and applying it to her lashes and brows. Mabel's simple beauty trick ignited Tom Lyle's imagination, and he started what would become a billion-dollar business, one that remains a viable American icon after nearly a century. He named it Maybelline in her honor.

    Karma is a potent law of the universe. Karma, literally meaning action, is the sum of your intentional and deliberate consciousness, which prescribes your thoughts and thus determines your actions. Just as positive thoughts initiate positive outcomes, negative thoughts create angst. The wisdom of your karma is yours alone; you cannot experience someone else's karma. Fortuitously, you can influence the sovereignty of your karma. In Karmic Alibi, expert Patricia Gagic shares how to expedite the wisdom of karma.

In the midst of all this appeared a woman who had turned the head of Al Capone, married into the famous Maybelline company, and possessed more than enough beauty, magnetism and allure to make men do most anything.
