Smashwords book reviews by Jack Thompson

  • Life On A Shoestring ... In Beverly Hills? on Jan. 16, 2012

    I read this delightful book and enjoyed it all. The book is informative and insightful. I found myself changing my way of looking at life, and admiring the writer for creating a "cup is full" kind of life despite all. She certainly Creates her life with a capital C. This is certainly a book worth reading. I recommend it.
