Review by Michelle Marie
Wonderful book! I recommend Women Who Think Too Much, I am a woman who thinks too much. I love this author and her style of writing. I think she has so many wonderful insights and also I found myself laughing because I identify with this book so much. I know you will love it too!

Review by Jenn on Aug. 08, 2014 FIVE STARS
This book should be required reading as part of the high school curriculum. I made a couple of these “slips” early on, but thankfully avoided the worst of it thanks to some very strong and frank women in my life. However, I’ve had many friends who have had to learn the hard way–or never learned, and it’s heartbreaking to watch and so unnecessary.
Thank you, Jeanne, for the very straightforward advice and important reminder for all of us. Speaking of that, I think I need to go pad my “ILFU” fund…. 😉

From Carol Balawyder:

The obvious, I suppose, is Tolstoy’s War and Peace. After reading this stellar review of the novel, I’m going to read it again. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/andrew-kaufman/war-and-peace_b_5339720.html

From Gigi:

TAO TE CHING, by Stephen Mitchell. My favorite book. In my opinion, this is the best translation. None of the others I’ve read can compare.

THE ANTI-WAR QUOTE BOOK, edited by Eric Groves, Sr.

quotes

This is an excellent little book.

“Make wars unprofitable and you make them impossible.” A.Philip Randolph (1889-1979), Civil Rights leader

“Almost all propaganda is designed to create fear. Heads of governments and their officials know that a frightened people is easier to govern, will forfeit rights it would otherwise defend, is less likely to demand a better life, and will agree to millions and millions being spent on “Defense.” John Boynton Priestly (1894-1984), English writer Think TWIN-TOWERS

“They have always taught and trained you to believe it to be your patriotic duty to go to war and to have yourselves slaughtered at their command. But in all the history of the world, you, the people, have never had a voice in declaring war, and strange as it certainly appears, no war by any nation in any age has ever been declared by the people.” Eugene Victor Debs (1885-1926), American labor and political leader

“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.” Issac Asimov (1920-1992),Russian-born American author

“I hate war as only a soldier who has live it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, and its stupidity.” Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969), American president

Hey, just think about it
