Read from August 18 to 21, 2016

Mildly interesting book with a misleading title from a well-meaning author who doesn't really know what he's talking about. Not worthy of all the media attention received and not really worth talking about either.

Tashia This is a memoir. How can the author not know what he's talking about?

Ginny It is repetitious

Town and Country I just saw him on CNBC and it sounds like an interesting read.

Janet I LOVED IT! The first book that brought me to tears in many years... and yes, he knows exactly what he's talking about.
