Highly Recommended Read - Regina Shen: Endurance by Lance Erlick

Regina Shen: EnduranceRegina Shen: Endurance by Lance Erlick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again, Mr. Erlick has written a brilliant novel filled with heart-pounding action surrounding his strong female heroine, Regina Shen! In this fourth novel of the series, Regina finds herself racing back across the country and through the desert to try to barter for her sister. Along the way, she meets with old and new faces, and finds herself making a difficult choice in the end that could completely change everything.
Another great read - I can't wait to read the next book in the series!!

Highly Recommended Read - Chew on This by Eric Slosser

Chew on This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About Fast FoodChew on This: Everything You Don't Want to Know About Fast Food by Eric Schlosser
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you really want to find a way to deter yourself from eating so much fast food (or any at all), this is the book to read!! It's written in a clear way that really exposes the fast food industry, with everything from how it changed our job industry (for the worse) to what ingredients may actually be in some of your favorite foods (some of which aren't even really edible)! This is a fast read with great information that is explained so that we can all understand it, even if we don't have business or nutrition degrees. I highly recommend it!

My rating: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1614025037">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
As a travel agent, I knew of G Adventures from various trade shows and classes. However, I didn't really appreciate all of their nuances until I read this book! It's a great example of doing what you feel is right, even when it goes contrary to popular business practices. The strategies won't work for everyone, but it's still a really good read for anyone in the small business world who wants to provide authentic products or services to their customers.
