I really enjoyed this book. Mika takes the reader for an interesting ride - from being the daughter of a very famous yet grounded family through her years in broadcast journalism to the place where she finally found the proper fit with Morning Joe.
She shares what it's like to have a high energy, high profile position and raise a family. I read it in two nights and felt lucky to be able to make the journey along with her.
This was an easy and comfortable read. I was impressed by the man's humanity and generosity of spirit. He was invested in doing a good job and a lot went into the show. His stedfastness in the role of host and his ability to lead the team is what made it all work. His view of how we should treat each other shines through in the pages. I enjoyed getting to know more about him and would recommend this book.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is the story of the 2008 wildfires at the Tassajara retreat which is located deep in the California wilderness Not only did the book cover the events surrounding the wildfires in great detail it also gave a view into the lives of the Tassajara community and how Zen teaching affected their decisions during the crisis.
Kudos to the writer Colleen Morton Busch for doing an excellent job.
This is my review of the hardcover version of this book which I found very interesting and informative. It certainly helped broaden my understanding of the role that Rhode Island played in actively promoting the slave trade in the North. The family's story of discovery is a great part of the book.
I have read several books on Janis' life and this is by far the best one I've read to date. It is very straightforward with no attempt to sensationalize the darker aspects of her life. The author spells out in bits and pieces the wonderful gift that Janis had and outlines her brilliant, but tragic career. The author did a lot of research for the book and it shows. This is quite a well written book.
Got this for Christmas and finished it in two days. It fills in a lot of the missing pieces in Gregg's and the bank's history. It's nice to hear his side of things. I walked away having respect for the guy despite his many excesses. It's a good read.
This is an outstanding book. It is non fiction but reads like a great novel. This book gives great insight into how the Russian government really operates and the price a person can pay for interfering with the system. Browder lays it all out and writes the playbook on how to fight back.
This is a great book in that it provides a lot of information about the time and places that are the backdrop for Janis'short life and the things that drove her to excess. I enjoyed the writer's style immensely.
