Women everywhere will applaud the writings found within Whitehouse's Circles in the Sand. There is a little bit of every woman's story in her story.

You don't need to be an actor to love this book
What a gold mine! This book isn't just for actors--it is a meticulously-researched, up-to-date and readable guide to living well in Manhattan without watching money flow through your fingers--it covers everything from haircuts and clothes to great deals at the opera. I'm recommending it to all newcomers, regardless of profession. If I had to find one small flaw, it's that I'm not quite ...
Delaying the Real World
Adventures for 20-somethings
This book and others like it should be required reading for all college grads and other young people. It is full of ideas about how to avoid getting trapped in the work-a-day world too early in life. This book was of great value to me during my 20s (I turn 30 next week). I've enjoyed lots of character-building adventures in my 20s and this book always helped lead me towards rewarding paths. For ...

Living, Studying, and Working in Italy: Everything You Need To Know To Fulfill Your Dreams of Living Abroad
Travis Neighbor Ward
Very thorough and helpful
This book is great because it gives you things from an American perspective. I've lived in Italy before on a study abroad program, so I was familiar with some things, but the lists of contact information alone are enough reason to buy this book. It covers everything from student visas to getting dual citizenship and from teaching ESL to starting your own business. A must read for anyone ...
Experiencing America: Through the Eyes of Visiting Fulbright Scholars: Stories of Foreign Fulbrighters in the ...
Mutually Exclusive Set of Definitions from the Universal Set of USA!
Well! When I got this book as a gift from one of my friend, my initial thought (after reading few pages was) that it will have similar definitions and "New things" again and again by different scholars in the following pages. But, that wasn't true, each scholar experienced USA in a unique way, every one has their own set of definitions and likes/dislikes about USA. USA is the most diverse ...
Buying a House in Italy (Buying a House - Vacation Work Pub)
Vacation Work Publications
We bought a house in Cortona Italy 12 years ago only after a long hard search. IF ONLY we had Gordon Neale's book with us on that first trip hunting for the perfect house. His detailed knowledge of the intracacies of house buying law in Italy is infinite and we would have had fewer grey hairs if this book was available then . Apart from that it is a wonderful guide from a very sympathetic ...

Our Hearts Were Young And Gay: An Unforgettable Comic Chronicle of Innocents Abroad in the 1920s
Cornelia Otis Skinner
Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers
I'm still laughing...
This delightful book brings back memories of my own traveling abroad (thing seem to happen to me too) as well as time spend with my very own Emily. How refreshing to discover Europe through the wide and innocent eyes of two 19 years olds! The travel purses, rabbit-fur coats, and encounter with Mr. Wells are just a few of the delightful incidents you will find as you laugh your way through this ...
Wow! What a book.
Fantastic depiction of the trips all of us take when young and in search of ourselves. The author and his crew were lucky to have such action packed travels to far away places and cultures, traditions and realities. I liked the way each place was presented and how the best features were emphasized. It doesn't sound the trips were well planned so the spontaneity of events keeps the reader on the ...

The book is laden with numerous political cartoons and even anecdotes from popular culture ...
Etiquette Guide to Japan (Japan Quick Guides)
Boye Lafayette De Mente
Better work on your bow!
In Japan, as visiting foreigners keep discovering -- if they're paying proper attention -- "etiquette" means a great deal more than simply knowing which knife and fork to use. (Or, in this case, what not to do with your chopsticks.) Japan has been a deeply and subtly ritualized and mannered society for millennia, and even with the postwar easing of some rituals and the introduction and acceptance ...
