Former President Jimmy Carter has written a profound, full-of-data, current book on the abuse of women around the world. Men more than women need to read this book because they are mostly the cause of the bad effects/roadblocks/destruction of women in many, many areas.
What more can one say to Grace Kelly, visually stunning and beautiful, and Cary Grant, suave and handsome, with the backdrop of the French Riviera and classic look of the fifties heightened by the film master, Alfred Hitchcock. Who cares about realism for this classic sleuth adventure!
Frederick Law Olmstead is credited as the Father of American landscape architecture because of his great works/parks including NYC's Central Park, the Capitol Grounds, and Biltmore. But his long interesting career also included that of merchant marine, experimental farmer, author/journalist on racism in the South pre-Civil War and administrator extraordinaire of medical/hospital personnel during the Civil War. And yes, his landscape architecture projects spanned the entire United States during many decades well into the 20th century.
If you love CSI style crime shows, read this book from cover to cover on how the details of the crime studied in this book are delivered by the author. Amazing, frustrating, and prejudicial by all the players involved in the case and related trials.
Sweetheart Leslie Caron surprises you with her sometimes self indulgent life in the movies. One forget the number of good films she made with leading actors in Hollywood and more. Light and easy read.
