The stunning true story of Bergdorf Goodman’s legendary personal shopper Eighty-six-year-old Betty Halbreich is a true original who could have stepped straight out of Stephen Sondheim’s repertoire. She has spent nearly forty years as the legendary personal shopper at Bergdorf Goodman, where she works with socialites, stars, and ordinary women off the street. She has helped many find their true selves through fashion, frank advice, and her own brand of wisdom. She is trusted by the most discriminating persons—including Hollywood’s top stylists—to tell them what looks best. But Halbreich’s personal transformation from cosseted young girl to fearless truth teller is the greatest makeover of her career.

The remarkable saga of the wine and people of Beaujolais and Georges Duboeuf, the peasant lad who brought both world recognition. Every third week of November, wine shops around the world announce “Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé” and in a few short weeks, over seven million bottles are sold and drunk. Although often scorned by the wine world’s snob set, the annual delivery of each year’s new Beaujolais wine brings a welcome ray of sunshine to a morose November from New York to Tokyo. The surprising Cinderella tale behind the success of Beaujolais Nouveau captures not just the story of a wine but also the history of a fascinating region. At the heart of this fairy tale is the peasant wine grower named Georges Duboeuf, whose rise as the undisputed king of Beaujolais reads like a combination of suspenseful biography and luscious armchair travel. I’ll Drink to That transports us to the unique corner of France where medieval history still echoes and where the smallholder peasants who made Beaujolais wines on their farms battled against the contempt of the entrenched Burgundy and Bordeaux establishment. With two bottles of wine in his bike’s saddlebag, young Duboeuf set out to revolutionize the stodgy wine business, becoming the richest and most famous individual wine dealer in France. But this is more than one man’s success story. As The Perfectionist used Bernard Loiseau to tell the layered history of French haute cuisine, here Chelminski uses Duboeuf’s story to paint the portrait of the often endearing, sometimes maddening but always interesting inhabitants of a little-known corner of France, offering at the same time a witty, panoramic view of the history of French winemaking.

Written for people who have only learned one thing in life and that's that they're stupid, A School of Sober Second Thoughts contains more than 2,500 jokes and one-liners that offers readers one way to do it all over again to realize it wasn't just them, after all. It was everyone who taught them to be it, too. Willidau has taken a different course and decided to spend some time teaching himself a thing or two, he didn't quite catch the first time around. Ken Willidau's philosophy is that if you're going to be stupid, yourself, you might as teach it to yourself so you'll know what you're talking about first to know what you really don't. Willidau teaches and takes his course trying to figure out if it's the teachers or the pupil that's the problem here, using you as the pupil this time, and tries to resolve it all over again, for once and for all. And he's usually an easy mark because just your showing up will leave him touched and dumbfounded. The curriculum of chapters make the course one that will test your resolve. Among them, 'Anger Management 0110', 'Geriatrics 7599', 'Meteorology 0072', 'Business 0905', 'Social Studies 0724' and 'Literature 0451' will change the way you think about everything you never knew before. The class is spent being lectured with a teaching technique of using jokes containing wit, dark humour, twisted logic, tongue-in-cheek, rumours going around school about the other teachers, plays on words and double entendre humour to hit his mark. Spending your day learning your lessons from Ken's teachings will make you as stupid as he is and how smart he thinks he is and not who taught you how to do that, for yourself, the first time around your block. A School of Sober Second Thoughts is a perfect read for those times when you know you were stupid for not reading this the first time around and don't know you'll be as stupid by the end of it all again, too, yet.

This book is one person's travels through a catalogue of nightmare experiences. Anyone who has suffered through divorce of any form knows this one!! Abuse of various natures are present in this autobiography. Not so much the cure for, but mostly, the acceptance of and forgiveness ability. The emotional healing process does call for the time element, unfortunately! However, this book tells about different aspects of ways and means to this beautiful end. This book is not for people looking for a quick fix or a way out. Abstinence from alcohol is a tool which many people have used as a problem solver. This book is only one person's life under both chronic inebriation and total abstinence conditions. There are many adventures where the reader might question the physical influence under which the author was operating. Even without the alcoholic consumption by the author, the behavior, when compared to the behavior of a well adjusted individual are incredibly different!! People who have loved or been loved by those who are immediately involved with alcohol or drugs may gain a deeper understanding of the total situation. Also, the author hopes that some comfort to the reader will take place upon the realization that they are not alone. The greatest gift the author has received from life, is PEACE ON EARTH.
