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.

Book Club: The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel

The Roanoke Girls

The Roanoke Girls is full of surprises through and through. The story follows fifteen year-old Lane Roanoke came to live with her grandparents and fireball cousin, Allegra, on their vast estate in rural Kansas after her mother kills herself. Lane knows little of her mother’s mysterious family, but she quickly embraced life as one of the rich and beautiful Roanoke girls. But when she discovered the dark truth at the heart of the family, she runs…fast and far away. Learning the family trouble past and the real reason why her mother kills herself is shocking. The Roanoke family is seriously messed up, I don’t even think the word dysfunctional begins to describe the family secret they’re all hiding. While the secret is revealed pretty early on you keeping flipping through the pages to learn more and more about the Roanoke girls. If you love a good mystery you will love this book. Reminds me a little bit of flowers in the attic.

Book Club: Democracy in Black

book.jpgHow Race Still Enslaves the American Soul by Eddie S. Glaude Jr.

What so much talk about politics I decided to read a little more on topics my friends have been discussing. Just last week three friends sent my video of a white police officer beating up and raping a young black women in jail. The issue of how our justice system needs to repaired is a heated discussion around the world. Several people I know think races don’t matter in society but this book shows that it does. Today the issue of race has grown even more dire. From the murders of black youth by the police, to the dismantling of the Voting Rights Act, to the disaster visited upon poor and middle-class black families by the Great Recession, it is clear that black America faces an emergency. There is inequality within our system. In Democracy in Black Eddie S. Glaude Jr.’s shows we live in a country founded on a “value gap”—with white lives valued more than others—that still distorts our politics today. Whether discussing why all Americans have racial habits that reinforce inequality, why black politics based on the civil-rights era have reached a dead end, or why only remaking democracy from the ground up can bring real change. Even though the book focus on  African American lives in today’s society you can see how races still plays a powerful role in today’s world. I highly recommend this book you will have a new insight on race and politics.
