Looking for a good true story? It's true! I just finished the Accidental Billionaires...Be right in the same Harvard dorm room with the players as ideas germinate. Follow their successes. Compare to what it is today.

This should be required reading for everyone remotely interested in start ups...anyone who ever thought that they had an inspirational idea about...anything never done before...which is probably each of us!

Easy read - written by the author of 21, which started at MIT.

P.S. Another good business/mgt...

She notices other fairies looking at her differently and hears their whispers of her being “the one”. She needs to figure out what’s going on & quick - before her Grandmother locks her in the house...

(Remember this is for those who read James Patterson/Alex Cross, Harlan Coben's stand alone suspense, Patrica Cornwell's Scarpetta series, etc.) There's a a great line in the sequel which sums it up ... she's a "woman who hates men who hate women".

Not yet having a newborn nor knowing that much about babies - I found this book fascinating. The author describes what she feels is the best way to adjust to a newborn in the home and how to go about this transition.

She has a system that sounds easy to follow and adjust to your life. Five different personality types of babies are discussed including how to identify which one your baby...
