Book Review & Summary:

A RECOMMENDED SUMMER READ BY THE NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, TIME, AND NEWSWEEK Longtime Jeopardy! host and television icon Alex Trebek reflects on his life and career. Since debuting as the host of Jeopardy! in 1984, Alex Trebek has been something like a family member to millions of television viewers, bringing entertainment and education into their homes five nights a week. Last year, he made the stunning announcement that he had been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. What followed was an incredible outpouring of love and kindness. Social media was flooded with messages of support, and the Jeopardy! studio received boxes of cards and letters offering guidance, encouragement, and prayers. For over three decades, Trebek had resisted countless appeals to write a book about his life. Yet he was moved so much by all the goodwill, he felt compelled to finally share his story. “I want people to know a little more about the person they have been cheering on for the past year,” he writes in The Answer Is…: Reflections on My Life. The book combines illuminating personal anecdotes with Trebek’s thoughts on a range of topics, including marriage, parenthood, education, success, spirituality, and philanthropy. Trebek also addresses the questions he gets asked most often by Jeopardy! fans, such as what prompted him to shave his signature mustache, his insights on legendary players like Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer, and his opinion of Will Ferrell’s Saturday Night Live impersonation. The book uses a novel structure inspired by Jeopardy!, with each chapter title in the form of a question, and features dozens of never-before-seen photos that candidly capture Trebek over the years. This wise, charming, and inspiring book is further evidence why Trebek has long been considered one of the most beloved and respected figures in entertainment.

After a contestant wrote “We love you, Alex!” as his Final Jeopardy! answer, fans around the world quickly chimed in to proclaim their own love and support for beloved Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek. In the wake of his devastating cancer diagnosis, the moment provided the perfect opportunity to reflect on what the show — and the man – meant to them.

There are many surprises, like the fact that Trebek was almost 50 when he discovered that he had a half brother, as well as the revelation that for a short time he actually dreamed of becoming a priest.

Who Is Alex Trebek? is the first biography of the much-loved game show host, and as such, celebrates the man who has created a remarkable legacy that will live on in popular culture for generations to come.

Book Summary:

"It's about time a book came out about one of the most talented and beloved performers in the American theater. Charlotte is the consummate actress, comedienne, entertainer. Her work on stage and screen is always hilarious and somehow also gets you right in the gut. Her story is every bit as brilliant. Read it and smile." -Comedy Legend, Carl Reiner "To think of Charlotte Rae is to smile. Consequently, when I began to read "The Facts of My Life," I was unprepared for the emotional impact it would have on me. By the time I finished the first chapter, dealing as it does with her severely troubled son Andy, I was in tears. "As an old friend of Charlotte's, I thought I knew her fairly well. But as I read on, I discovered that the 'facts of her life' were constantly surprising (as well as amusing and engrossing)! There is so much that I don't know about Charlotte and so much that I now want to know, when the book is finally completed and published, I'll be first in line to get my copy!" -Sheldon Harnick (Composer, Fiddler on the Roof) Charlotte Rae's career spans more than seventy years, from the golden age of television to Shakespeare in the Park, the New York Cabaret scene of the late 1940's and 50's to her hit series, The Facts of Life and well beyond. Off stage and screen, Charlotte's life has been one of joy and challenge, raising an autistic son, coming to terms with alcoholism, the heartache of a broken marriage, the revelation of a gay husband and the sudden challenge of facing middle-age with financial and emotional uncertainties-an crisis she ultimately turned into the determination that brought her stardom. The Facts of My Life is the first opportunity for Charlotte fans to explore the fascinating story of her extraordinary life: poignant and hilarious, a story of courage and triumph, one that speaks for a generation of women breaking barriers, taking on challenges, overcoming personal tragedy, and paving the way for others.

Book Summary:

Once I realized that each moment in real life is more dramatic than any novel or screenplay ever written, I finally realized that reality was worth engaging. So often we wonder if anyone notices the lives we lead, but I believe God travels great distances to gather angels who long to see our stories unfold. He is like a director or writer who wants to show off His cast and characters.God, scripture, and truth stand firm, yet our stories and theology influence one another. What do you believe about God, Christ, and our identity as Christians? What are your thoughts on communion, worship, baptism, and heaven? What does God say about our struggle with Him and the emotions we carry inside us? What is the role of the church and the need we have for outside support? And finally, what are the true definitions of repentance and sanctification within the context of a grace-based theology? In your hands, you hold the intersection of my story and my theology. You hold my "Storiology". May it point you to God, igniting a desire to find Him in the middle of your own dramatic, valuable story. Even angels long to look into these things. - 1 Peter 1:12Endorsements:* Bob Blincoe, Ph.D. U.S. Director of Frontiers* Annette Schuster, MA. Director of Kids Need to Know * Bob Krepps.

A STORY OF LOSS, GREED, AND BETRAYAL“I was 43 when the love of my life died at my hand.” Elizabeth McKenna's first journal entry begins an amazing story of her descent into despair and a long arduous trek back to the world of the emotionally balanced. Devastated by the death of her true love, haunted by a family curse, and pursued by a misogynistic ex-husband, Elizabeth crosses the American continent alone in an antique monoplane searching for answers. Through the kindness of strangers, she finds many of the answers she seeks. Finally, forced to confront her past, she reveals her most guarded secret and comes face-to-face with her demons, real and imagined. From desperation, she learns the true meaning of friendship, strength, and redemption. Elizabeth's Secrets is a soulful, heart-wrenching tale of good versus evil, a magical story teeming with self-realization and determination. Within Bette McKenna's words, we feel every beat of her resolute heart. Through hopeful blue eyes, we envision a brilliant world of spirituality, compassion, and breathtaking beauty.

Book Summary:

'The Hungover Games deftly explores expectations of modern womanhood through a beautiful, wild, painfully honest, hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking story. Full of adventure and awe, Sophie Heawood has written a soulful, truthful homage to a life lived with appetite, intensity and wonder.' Dolly Alderton I had no idea how to commit to another human being. I could barely commit to reading a magazine, and I wrote for magazines for a living. My specialist subject was celebrities, and my own relationships made their marriages look eternal. I’d never paid a household bill that didn’t mention bailiffs, and my idea of exercise was to go and stand outside a famous person’s house and stare until I’d convinced myself that I lived in it. But my life in LA was happy; free of care and consequence. That was, until I came down to earth - with a bump. So this is the story of how I staggered from partying in Hollywood to bringing up a baby in Piss Alley, Dalston; how I never did find a copy of What To Expect When You Weren’t Even Fucking Expecting To Be Expecting, and why paternity testing is not a good topic for a first-date conversation. People always said I’d find love where I least expected it. I always said they were idiots. **AN EVENING STANDARD AND COSMOPOLITAN BEST BOOK OF 2020** **AN OBSERVER NON-FICTION BOOK TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2020**

Book Summary:

The two greatest questions that we as humans ask is "Why am I here?" and "Who am I?". The answer to these questions gives us sense of purpose and great fulfillment. The first questions speak to Destiny, and the second question speaks to Identity. Identity is what releases us to our Destiny. However, many stand at the doors of destiny never figuring out how to get through those doors. For many this is the case in regards to the destiny and vision they see in their heart. It almost can seem that Destiny is maybe for a select special group of people. The truth is everyone has a unique Destiny, but few will access it until they can truly answer the question "Who am I?". In this book, we will look at nine common obstacles that all humans are faced with in their life time as it pertains to their Identity. We will look at individuals from ancient times and how they dealt with their "Identity Crisis" on the way to their Destiny. From their lives, you will see principles that will work for you as you travel your path to Destiny. If you are tired of the Destiny you feel in your heart alluding you, then let's take a journey through this life changing book. It is time to tear down the False Image you see of yourself, and release your Greatness.

Kerry Sanderson's life is falling apart. He's crushing himself to fit into the boxes others have put him in: dutiful son, good boyfriend, real man. But even the small rebellions he's fought for himself-moving into a sketchy part of town and becoming an exotic dancer-aren't giving him the freedom he needs. Ewyn Garrity, a security guard at the gay club where Kerry dances, has found himself in protecting others. Everyone thinks he's straight, but Ewyn doesn't fit into simple boxes, either. When he meets Kerry, he makes a not completely innocent offer of company after work. Ewyn and Kerry hit it off, each finding something he desperately needs in the other. But when Kerry is forced to confront the pain and self-doubt that keep him crushed in his boxes, he's afraid that no one, not even Ewyn, will be able to love who he is when he finally, truly becomes Kerry.

Book Summary:

It's been said that a man is not actually born when he comes out of the female body, since he doesn't know yet that he is born. He is actually born when he first obtains the knowledge of his birth. So it is when a revelation of great magnitude bursts upon a person's consciousness with the power to change his trajectory in life. The Life-Sentence centers on just such a revelation-a past-life experience that shatters Kip Morgan's sense of identity, leads him down a path of determined self-inquiry, and ultimately brings him closer to grasping the true reality of existence.Kip belongs to a generation that has never experienced the extreme violence and dislocation of the past. This relative ease has given members of his generation the chance to reflect on life in a way that members of previous generations did not have the time and opportunity to do. Many of those who have been granted this freedom know instinctively that time is an illusion. There is no past, no future. Everything occurs in a single moment, or in eternity.The lesson of The Life Sentence is that in order to understand what's really going on, we have to let go, let go of everything. And that's practically impossible for most of us because we're all preoccupied with our personal obsessions. There is only one true goal in life, and that is to get rid of these obsessions once and for all, to be able to let go utterly, and thus be able to grasp the true reality of existence.

Book Summary:

Envision a cold and calculating future world, where mankind has attained miraculous gains on the one certain, chilling fact of life that has plagued the species since the dawn of time. In this bold new landscape, humans are able to predict the body's natural demise with a specific numerical prediction of the age of death, called a PDA. What's more, life spans have dramatically increased, and humans can fend off the inevitable depending on how they live. That is, all humans except for one: Sophia Nolan, who, since birth, has faced a number that has idled at a grim twenty-seven. Twenty-Seven, Shayne Woodsmith's arresting, dystopian debut novel, lays bare the plight of this one mere mortal and what her all-too-human condition suggests for a species that has been forever fixated on cheating death. As Sophia rapidly approaches the age of twenty-seven, she must reckon with the consuming obsession of the society around her. Fast-paced, thought-provoking, and at times utterly frantic, Twenty-Seven delivers a disarmingly honest portrayal of human frailty and strength through the lens of one tormented outcast. While presciently casting a cold eye on our health-obsessed future, it exposes the darker side of an all-too-sterile world, where the ultimate prestige is longevity. You may never look at the notion of a long and healthy life in the same way again.

Book Summary:

Table of Contents Introduction Keeping up with the Joneses Psychological Implications of Peer Pressure Inculcating Moral Values Competition Repercussions of Peer Pressure Channelizing Competitiveness Interaction with Peers Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction This book is going to give you an introduction to peer pressure and what a great influence it has upon our lives. It has a number of anecdotes and real-life incidents related to my family, my classmates, and my colleagues. All of the incidents are real, even though they may seem very weird, and over the top! But that is what real life is like, most of the time! This book also has lots of inside knowledge about how peer pressure can influence you, and perhaps set the path on how you are going to behave for the rest of your life. For millenniums, man being a social animal has always felt an instinctive need to "fit in" with his comrades and the people around him. He would prefer being ordinary and run of the mill, as long as his friends, relatives and acquaintances accept him as one of them. However, any unusual behavior is going to isolate him from them. So this instinctive need to fit in with the crowd, will make a person get influenced by a group, individuals, or observers. This influence is going to be exerted on you consciously or subconsciously. It means that you are going to change your behavior, value, and even attitude in order to conform to your peer groups or to fit in with society. This sort of conforming begins in childhood itself. Just imagine a little child looking at another child's clothes in the park or in the playground. He is too little to understand the meaning of possession but he thinks that he does not have something which the other child has. So he tells his parents that he wants that item.
