What's Going On Here?
There are SO MANY wonderful book review blogs out there and I can't compete with them, that is for sure. So this is not a book review blog. This is just a way for me to organize what I have read so that I can be better at matching the right book to the right person. The blog title comes from the brilliant mind of the most talented woman who ever lived, Ms. Judy Garland. The full quote is, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." That is what I hope to do here and in ever aspect of my life.

Pretty Darn Powerful
What Girls are Made Of was really good. And it was made even better with the author's note, but it would have been really good even if she hadn't given some great testimony as to why she wrote the book and why it written in the starkly honest way that it is. She admits that there are parts that may offend some people. But she explains why that is totally okay. I was not offended, but I was surprised- not shocked, but surprised by the graphic nature of parts of the book. You can tell though that it is not done gratuitously, that the inclusion of such frank descriptions make a really good point. Tough book, good book. But yeah, it may offend people. Another great book from Arnold.
