It is easy to see this book as a bag of tricks that you can use to get people to do what you want them to do but I think that is just a shallow way of analyzing it🀨. It is deeper than that. The book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, is not … Continue reading Book Review: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

Review: The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett (A MUST READ!)

This is just a great book. It just is....😍 I typically don't like books that deal with colorism and all these other deep seated issues of African American society because in my mind we see enough of this on the news and hear enough about it on the radio. I don't need to read about … Continue reading Review: The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett (A MUST READ!)

Book Review: The Martian by Andy Weir

Funny, sarcastic, well written, a bit technical at times but an all around gripping and compelling story about one man's quest to survive on Mars.
