Triple Jeopardy Book Summary :

Triple Jeopardy is a book about resilience written in a powerful, inspiring way. It’s a wakeup call that iterates that you are in control of your own story, no matter the circumstances. ~ Mike Tyson, Former Undisputed Boxing Champion, Best Selling Author, Actor WOW! Triple Jeopardy is a remarkable story that reveals intimate details about the author and her family’s encounter with the criminal justice system. It is emotionally moving, enlightening, thought-provoking, informative, even humorous at times and provides valuable life lessons. This book is a must-read from start to finish. ~ Flavor Flav, Hip-hop Rapper “When I first met Rita Ali, I had just begun working with Mike Tyson on his autobiography, Undisputed Truth. I was far away from my wife and dog back in New York, but Rita, Mike’s mother-in-law, immediately adopted me and made me feel welcome and, ultimately, one of the family. Each day I had some time to kill waiting for Mike to finish up some other business or tend to his pigeons until we could resume our taped interviews, and Rita helped to fill the time by regaling me with stories of her life back in Philadelphia. She had willed herself into being one of the few females to penetrate the world of boxing, first as a reporter and later as a publicist. Her stories of her interactions with Muhammad Ali, Don King, Joe Frazier, were so compelling that I urged her to write her own book! And I suggested it even more forcefully after she related to me the sordid details of her and her family’s persecution by the federal government for crimes that they didn’t commit. Rita went to work and now we have Triple Jeopardy. But rather than being a “woe-is-me” account, her memoir is an empowering document that proves the old adage that you can’t keep a good woman down. You’ll enjoy the anecdotes of the rich and famous celebrities that Rita has crossed paths with but you’ll have to admire the strength, discipline and wisdom that Rita imparts when reco

Walking with Ghosts Book Summary :

“Make no mistake about it: Walking with Ghosts is a masterpiece. A book that will wring out our tired hearts. It is by turns poetic, moving, and very funny. You will find it on the shelf alongside other great Irish memoirs including those by Frank McCourt, Nuala O'Faolain and Edna O’Brien.” —Colum McCann As a young boy growing up in the outskirts of Dublin, Gabriel Byrne sought refuge in a world of imagination among the fields and hills near his home, at the edge of a rapidly encroaching city. Born to working class parents and the eldest of six children, he harbored a childhood desire to become a priest. When he was eleven years old, Byrne found himself crossing the Irish Sea to join a seminary in England. Four years later, Byrne had been expelled and he quickly returned to his native city. There he took odd jobs as a messenger boy and a factory laborer to get by. In his spare time, he visited the cinema where he could be alone and yet part of a crowd. It was here that he could begin to imagine a life beyond the grey world of 60s Ireland. He reveled in the theatre and poetry of Dublin’s streets, populated by characters as eccentric and remarkable as any in fiction, those who spin a yarn with acuity and wit. It was a friend who suggested Byrne join an amateur drama group, a decision that would change his life forever and launch him on an extraordinary forty-year career in film and theatre. Moving between sensual recollection of childhood in a now almost vanished Ireland and reflections on stardom in Hollywood and Broadway, Byrne also courageously recounts his battle with addiction and the ambivalence of fame. Walking with Ghosts is by turns hilarious and heartbreaking as well as a lyrical homage to the people and landscapes that ultimately shape our destinies.

Book A Woman in Engineering

A Woman in Engineering Book Summary :

Her goal: to become a world-renowned biomedical engineer working with scientific societies to improve the role of women in scientific fields and the way scientists and engineers integrate people and society into their work. By 1979, this goal had become a reality. In her memoirs, esteemed biomedical engineer Monique Frize recalls the events that taught her to over-come obstacles, become more resilient, recognize the importance of mentors and role models, and remain focused on the future. She also speaks of her appreciation of the critical role played by family and friends in maintaining the strength and determination required to succeed—and, above all, to succeed in a man’s world. Frize fondly remembers her youth in Montréal and in Ottawa, as well as her marked interest for math and science. Her entry into the world of engineering was both romantic—she met her husband—and tragic. She recounts the prejudice and stereotypes she faced. She pursued a challenging and rewarding international career in a very specialized field at a time when this was still very uncommon for a woman, acceding at the very moment of the tragic École Polytechnique massacre to key positions in support of women in science. These memoirs are sure to inspire young women who have a dream, and more specifically those who wish to enter sciences and engineering.

No Time Like the Future Book Summary :

A moving account of resilience, hope, fear and mortality, and how these things resonate in our lives, by actor and advocate Michael J. Fox. The entire world knows Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, the teenage sidekick of Doc Brown in Back to the Future; as Alex P. Keaton in Family Ties; as Mike Flaherty in Spin City; and through numerous other movie roles and guest appearances on shows such as The Good Wife and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Diagnosed at age 29, Michael is equally engaged in Parkinson’s advocacy work, raising global awareness of the disease and helping find a cure through The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, the world’s leading non-profit funder of PD science. His two previous bestselling memoirs, Lucky Man and Always Looking Up, dealt with how he came to terms with the illness, all the while exhibiting his iconic optimism. His new memoir reassesses this outlook, as events in the past decade presented additional challenges. In No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality, Michael shares personal stories and observations about illness and health, aging, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect the way we approach mortality. Thoughtful and moving, but with Fox’s trademark sense of humor, his book provides a vehicle for reflection about our lives, our loves, and our losses. Running through the narrative is the drama of the medical madness Fox recently experienced, that included his daily negotiations with the Parkinson’s disease he’s had since 1991, and a spinal cord issue that necessitated immediate surgery. His challenge to learn how to walk again, only to suffer a devastating fall, nearly caused him to ditch his trademark optimism and “get out of the lemonade business altogether.” Does he make it all of the way back? Read the book.
