The Daughter-In-Law Rules

By Sally Shields

This is a humorous look at the dynamics of the daughter-in-law, mother-in-law relationship while also giving some insight about how to get along with your mother-in-law.

While reading this book as a reviewer, the reading was easy to understand, and found that one could reread some of the rules over and over again. They are humorous and thought provoking at the same time.

These rules are almost tongue in cheek, but they are also true on a deeper level. It ultimately comes down to attitude. This book is fun and easy to read, while imparting information for all readers. This book receives a four star rating from this reviewer.

The Six Common Small Business Failures … and how to avoid them

By Frederick Jones

As a reviewer having read many business oriented books, this one is different from the rest. This book examines failure. If you have lived any years at all, you should have come to the realization that often more can be learned by failure than from success.

This book is about personal experience and teaches a good deal about the way you look at things and how much the proper attitude can help in success. You will also be asked to define what success is for you.

Each person’s definition of success will be different. It is up to the individual. Some people are a success with less than the next person is, while others need more. Where does it reach a stage of greed?

This book should be mandatory reading for anyone thinking of going into business for themselves, and in corporate America as well. This reviewer recommends this book as a must read.
