I honestly was going to take a technique class about this book from William Sonoma. So I was excited to learn that I was going to be receiving this book for a review.  I love all the recipes they are easy to follow and the pictures will have you flipping through each page trying to found your next cooking adventure. I normally love buying cookbooks and going to cooking classes. I haven’t been to any good ones in about 3 months which for me is a long time. I have to say if you want to find recipes that your whole family will like that are not time consuming this book is for you.

Book Club: We the People by Juan Williams

 

As suggestion in the title. We are people the author Juan Williams introduces the reader on the life and work of a new generation of American Founders, who honor the original Founders’ vision, even as they have quietly led revolutions in American politics, immigration, economics, sexual behavior, and reshaped the landscape of the nation. The idea of freedom and what America stands for is always changing and each generation shapes that change. As a political Science major, I enjoy how Williams shows hard and long journey that America has took to get to the point it is today. The hope that the next generation will take us forward to achieve better and greater things. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to leaner how laws and government have changed in the world over the last few centuries.

Book Club: The New Rules of Work by Alexandra Cavoulacos and Kathryn Minshew

This book is more like a playbook. Which means that you don’t necessarily have to read back to front. You can use as a guide to land your dream job. However, what I found in the book is that you could take any piece of a job search process starting with career choice all the way to job offer and find something in the book to help you land your dream job. I been in working in and out of my major for about 2 years not long I know. I always feel I get looked over I don’t how to network or do interviews for someone in my field. Of course, I have several jobs in life. But anyone can tell you career jobs are different from day to day jobs. Instead of a hourly you may make a salary and you need to know how to play hard ball with what you want without looking like a jerk. Have to say this is a must have it true with the titles say the rules of working have changed since our parents and grandparents time and it time we learn how to pay the game.

My Rating normally 5/5 but I would give this book a 5/10.
