Best non-fiction/adventure book I've read in a long time. Shocking and true! If you don't know the story, don't look it up before you read the book first!
Fast-paced, insightful and terrifying- a must read for other true story adventure fans.
This true story by David Grann about the Osage tribe in Oklahoma during the 1920's, reads as if it were a fictional mystery. You'll be reeling from the murders painstakingly planned and performed by "a serial killer" in order to receive (um, steal) a piece of the oil-money pie owned by tribal members with rights to the oil discovered on their reservation.
If you are open and willing, this book WILL change your life...Kondo's process to get rid of, and organize your beloved possessions will be uplifting. After the grand purge, adopt several small but highly effective habits and feel tons lighter in your life. Her strong, gentle style gives a sense of ownership that will avoid your decluttering from becoming a temporary fad/fix.
Completely engrossing and surprising. A great gift to your own family, or a family that loves travel--so much in the world we've never heard about, let alone seen!
This book is pure pleasure for those who dream of solitude in smaller spaces- see how others achieved this dream. Hard to put down.
I read this cover to cover the first time I opened it. Educational, mouthwatering intros for most recipes, and other than several new-to-me spices and staples, the ingredients are generally few, and likely to to be in your pantry or fridge already. A really cool technique recipe on how to make couscous from scratch!
