Jackie, Janet & Lee: The Secret Lives of Janet ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A dazzling audiobook biography of three of the most glamorous women of the 20th century: Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis; her mother, Janet Lee Auchincloss; and her sister, Princess Lee Radziwill. "Do you know what the secret to happily ever after is?" Janet Bouvier Auchincloss would ask her daughters, Jackie and Lee, during their tea time. "Money and Power," she would say. It was a lesson neither would ever forget. They followed in their mother's footsteps after her marriages to the philandering socialite "Black Jack" Bouvier and the fabulously rich Standard Oil heir Hugh D. Auchincloss. Jacqueline Bouvier would marry John F. Kennedy Jr., and the story of their marriage is legendary, as is the story of her second marriage to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. Less well known is the story of her love affair with a world-renowned architect and a British peer. Her sister, Lee, had liaisons with both of Jackie's husbands in addition to her own three marriages - to an illegitimate royal, a Polish prince, and a Hollywood director. If the Bouvier women personified beauty, style, and fashion, it was their lust for money and status that drove them to seek out powerful men, no matter what the cost to themselves or to those they stepped on in their ruthless climb to the top. Based on hundreds of new interviews with friends and family of the Bouviers, among them their own half brother, as well as letters and journals, J. Randy Taraborrelli paints an extraordinary psychological portrait of two famous sisters and their ferociously ambitious mother. Jackie, Janet & Lee will drop listeners directly into the gilded, tangled web of secrets surrounding one of the most recognizable families in American history. 1. Language: English.

There's a little shop on Blossom Street in Seattle called A Good Yarn. You go there to buy knitting supplies and patterns, and now it's offering a knitting class. The first lesson: how to knit a baby blanket. For owner Lydia Hoffman, the shop represents her dream of beginning a new life free from the cancer that has ravaged her twice. A life that offers a chance at love, and maybe marriage. Jacqueline Donovan is stuck in a marriage that has dwindled into an arrangement of separate rooms and separate lives. She disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but if she knits a baby blanket, she can at least pretend to like her pregnant daughter-in-law. For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope as she and her husband make a final attempt at in vitro pregnancy. And tense-looking Alix Townsend, that's Alix with an "i", is learning to knit her blanket for her court-ordered community service project. Brought together by an age-old craft, these four women make unexpected discoveries, about themselves and each other. Discoveries that lead to love, to friendship and acceptance, to laughter and dreams. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Linda Emond.

Quicklet on Jacqueline Novogratz's The Blue Swe...

ABOUT THE BOOK Côte d'Ivoire in West Africa was an eye-opener for Jacqueline Novegratz, a young and idealistic American banker. Although only in her mid-20s when she arrived in Abidjan, the capital, in the 1980s, she had already had a successful career in international banking and was equipped with enthusiasm and a dream to change the world, but a certain naivete as well. Her mission was to use her expertise to help woman in Côte d'Ivoire become self-sufficient, but she soon discovered that she was unwelcome, and recognized that she would never be effective there. She knew that it was time to move on, but she'd learned an important lesson-to help people, you must have their willing participation. She also learned the importance of listening to people if one is to really understand what they are trying to say. The Blue Sweater is as much about learning as it is about Novogratz's experiences. Early in her book, she writes about a favorite blue sweater that she gave to Goodwill after an embarrassing episode in high school (Acumen Fund: Jacqueline Shares her Blue Sweater Story). Years later, she spots a boy in Rwanda wearing her sweater with her name tag still inside, and so the sweater becomes her metaphor for bridging the gap between cultures and economic classes around the globe, many of which she has seen firsthand. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Among the successes was the Blue Bakery, which began as the project of a women's group in Nyamirambo, a poor area of Kigali. When Novogratz first visited, two years after the founding of Duterimbere, she found 20 women in a small room, sitting in front of a counter with empty shelves behind it, waiting for business that never came. It had charitable support, but Novogratz convinced the women to drop the charity, with the promise that she would help them turn it into a profitable business. 'I wanted to see for myself what it would take to make a business work in Rwanda,' she says. Once again, Novogratz had more to learn-this time about cultural differences, such as the women's inability to look people in the eye or speak to strangers-but over time, the little bakery expanded and flourished. 'The story of the bakery was one of the human transformation that comes with being seen, being held accountable, succeeding,' Novogratz observes. Despite the successes, Novogratz eventually decided that to be more effective she needed to learn about business systems so that she could apply them to her work, and so she applied to business schools in the United States. She was accepted at the Stanford Graduate School of Business at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, where she earned an MBA.... Buy a copy to keep reading!
