In Such Good Company Book Review:

New York Times Bestseller Comedy legend Carol Burnett tells the hilarious behind-the-scenes story of her iconic weekly variety series, The Carol Burnett Show. In In Such Good Company, Carol Burnett pulls back the curtain on the twenty-five-time Emmy-Award winning show that made television history, and she reminisces about the outrageously funny and tender moments that made working on the series as much fun as watching it. Carol delves into little-known stories of the guests, sketches and improvisations that made The Carol Burnett Show legendary, as well as some favorite tales too good not to relive again. While writing this book, Carol rewatched all 276 episodes and screen-grabbed her favorite video stills from the archives to illustrate the chemistry of the actors and the improvisational magic that made the show so successful. Putting the spotlight on everyone from her costars to the impressive list of guest stars, Carol crafts a lively portrait of the talent and creativity that went into every episode. With characteristic wit and incomparable comic timing, she details hiring Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner, and Tim Conway; shares anecdotes about guest stars and close friends, including Lucille Ball, Roddy Mcdowell, Jim Nabors, Bernadette Peters, Betty Grable, Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorme, Gloria Swanson, Rita Hayworth, and Betty White; and gives her take on her favorite sketches and the unpredictable moments that took both the cast and viewers by surprise. This book is Carol's love letter to a golden era in television history through the lens of her brilliant show. Get the best seat in the house for "eleven years of laughter, mayhem, and fun in the sandbox."

In Good Company Book Review:

This latest film from the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of About a Boy is a dramatic comedy about the relationship between a 51-year-old sales executive and his new, 26-year-old boss. Both men are going through turmoil at home. The elder one, Dan Foreman (Dennis Quaid), already has two teenage daughters, which makes him liable to shock at being told his wife is pregnant. What with college fees, the mortgage and a new baby, Dan can't afford to lose his job. Meanwhile his upstart new boss, Carter Duryea (Topher Grace), is dumped by his wife just as he gets his promotion. He then falls in love with Dan's elder daughter (played by Scarlett Johansson)...In Good Company allows Paul Weitz plenty of scope for the droll appreciation of life's ironies which he showed to such good effect in About a Boy. The NHB Shooting Script is the official tie-in with this major release and Oscar-contender from Universal Pictures. As well as the full screenplay, it contains Paul Weitz's introduction and notes by the film-makers, plus sixteen stills, and complete cast and crew credits.

The Ride of a Lifetime Book Review:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A grand vision defined: The CEO of Disney, one of Time’s most influential people of 2019, shares the ideas and values he embraced to reinvent one of the most beloved companies in the world and inspire the people who bring the magic to life. Robert Iger became CEO of The Walt Disney Company in 2005, during a difficult time. Competition was more intense than ever and technology was changing faster than at any time in the company’s history. His vision came down to three clear ideas: Recommit to the concept that quality matters, embrace technology instead of fighting it, and think bigger—think global—and turn Disney into a stronger brand in international markets. Twelve years later, Disney is the largest, most respected media company in the world, counting Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 21st Century Fox among its properties. Its value is nearly five times what it was when Iger took over, and he is recognized as one of the most innovative and successful CEOs of our era. In The Ride of a Lifetime, Robert Iger shares the lessons he’s learned while running Disney and leading its 200,000 employees, and he explores the principles that are necessary for true leadership, including: • Optimism. Even in the face of difficulty, an optimistic leader will find the path toward the best possible outcome and focus on that, rather than give in to pessimism and blaming. • Courage. Leaders have to be willing to take risks and place big bets. Fear of failure destroys creativity. • Decisiveness. All decisions, no matter how difficult, can be made on a timely basis. Indecisiveness is both wasteful and destructive to morale. • Fairness. Treat people decently, with empathy, and be accessible to them. This book is about the relentless curiosity that has driven Iger for forty-five years, since the day he started as the lowliest studio grunt at ABC. It’s also about thoughtfulness and respect, and a decency-over-dollars approach that has become the bedrock of every project and partnership Iger pursues, from a deep friendship with Steve Jobs in his final years to an abiding love of the Star Wars mythology. “The ideas in this book strike me as universal” Iger writes. “Not just to the aspiring CEOs of the world, but to anyone wanting to feel less fearful, more confidently themselves, as they navigate their professional and even personal lives.”

The Decameron on a Goan Beach : Twelve Feel-Good Stories Book Review:

Four participants of an international conference on "The Art of Story-Telling"- three young persons and one not so young - prefer to remain in each other's company, decide to overstay and spend three days together in a beachside hotel in Goa before leaving for their respective home towns. While in Goa, they tell stories of their own invention, each of them telling a story every day, thereby recreating a backdrop immortalized by the 14th century writer Giovanni Boccaccio in The Decameron. Each of our group of four tells three stories in the course of three days.Some of the stories are realistic; some are magical; some are serious and comic at the same time; some modern fables have animals as characters and some of them even make sense in a curious sort of way. One thing, however, is common about these twelve stories: they celebrate life's diversities.

Switch Back Book Review:

For Steve Grey growing up, abuse and uncertainty was all he ever knew. Pulled out of a difficult family upbringing when he was only a child, Steve jumped from children's home to children's home, rarely ever escaping the after-effects of the trauma that defined much of his early years. Unfortunately, the type of suffering Grey endured doesn't just get to be wiped away, as Switch Back examines how his childhood abuse also manifested itself in his adult life in ways he could have never imagined. In a personal collection of memoirs, Grey recites the most pivotal moments of his challenging upbringing, focusing on the developments that occurred from childhood, and the reverberations that are still felt to this very day. Through musings and reflections, the heart-breaking story of Switch Back delves into some of the darkest times of Grey's life, yet the optimism in which these traumatic episodes are discussed makes for a truly inspirational tale of personal drive and discovery. With Switch Back, author Steve Grey dives deep into harrowing personal experiences, offering insight for those who may have suffered through similar episodes. While difficult to overcome at the time, Grey has since moved past the memories that haunted him in much of his developing life, with a new-found goal to use those same experiences to make sure abuse like this never happens again. With this novel, Grey offers a hand to anyone who has found themselves in a similar situation, primed with one key message in particular: you are not alone.

Such Good Work Book Review:

From Johannes Lichtman comes a wisely comic debut novel about a teacher whose efforts to stay sober land him in Sweden, but the refugee crisis forces a very different kind of reckoning. You don’t have to be perfect to do good... Jonas Anderson wants a fresh start. He’s made plenty of bad decisions in his life, and at age twenty-eight he’s been fired from yet another teaching position after assigning homework like, Attend a stranger’s funeral and write about it. But, he’s sure a move to Sweden, the country of his mother’s birth, will be just the thing to kick-start a new and improved—and newly sober—Jonas. When he arrives in Malmo in 2015, the city is struggling with the influx of tens of thousands of Middle Eastern refugees. Driven by an existential need to “do good,” Jonas begins volunteering with an organization that teaches Swedish to young migrants. The connections he makes there, and one student in particular, might send him down the right path toward fulfillment—if he could just get out of his own way. “Such Good Work is, indeed, a bit Jonas-like: it’s wary of affectation or grandstanding; it works small, as if from a sense of modesty, a reluctance to presume; it cuts sincerity with the driest of humor” (The New Yorker). In his debut, Lichtman, “a remarkable thinker and social satirist” (The New York Times Book Review), spins a darkly comic story, brought to life with wry observations and searing questions about our modern world, and told with equal measures of grace and wit.
