For a young society woman seeking a favorable marriage in the late 1890s, so much depends on her social season debut. Clara Carter has been given one goal: secure the affections of the city's most eligible bachelor. Debuting means plenty of work--there are corsets to be fitted, dances to master, manners to perfect. Her training soon pays off, however, as celebrity's spotlight turns Clara into a society-page darling. 

Yet Clara wonders if this is the life she really wants, especially when she learns her best friend has also set her sights on Franklin De Vries. When a man appears who seems to love her simply for who she is, and gossip backlash turns ugly, Clara realizes it's not just her heart at stake--the future of her family depends on how she plays the game.

 

 

Adorei. É uma magnífica visão do mundo feminino da alta burguesia do período vitoriano, nomeadamente ao espartilho social (e real) a que as jovens eram amarradas. 

Recomendo.

Arnorld Bennet disseca um dia, demonstrando-nos que não estamos tão ocupadas/os como pensámos. Examinado o "orçamento" de 24 horas por dia, ele retira 7 horas para o trabalho profissional e mais 7 para dormir. E depois desafia-nos a dar conta do que fazemos nas restantes 8 horas.

 

Este pequeno grande livro acompanha-me sempre. Tenho-o em vários formatos, inclusive em audio (Librovix, também gratuito), para ouvir no carro. Persuasivo e inspirador.

If you walk around every day on eggshells, nervous about making a mistake or looking stupid, then you should read this. 

If you have a "next big thing" in mind you want to do because you know it will be awesome (starting the business, making the big move, launching the nonprofit, writing the book) but are afraid of doing what it would take to make that thing happen, then you should read this. 

The universe is very big. You are very small. In fact, you're so small and so insignificant in the big picture that you don't even register to the eye of the cosmos. The universe was here before you were born and will be here long after you're gone, and your life is but a blip on its vast, vast radar. If your life is to matter, it's not going to matter to the universe. It's up to you make your life matter in the only way you can: by doing things that make a difference to you, to those around you, and to those whose lives you touch. Time is short. You have exactly NOW to do whatever it is you're here to do, or to let the inexorable passage of hours and days and years kill your potential like fruit left to die on a vine. 

The universe doesn’t hate you, but it doesn’t love you, either. You’re just an atom in its infinite workings. The universe doesn’t care if you live, die, suffer, or thrive. Whatever your life here will mean is up to you. 

Stop worrying so much about what others think and start being who you're supposed to be. It's time to do some epic shit.

 

 

Não recomendaria a leitura, apesar da parte inicial ser tão divertida quanto o título. 

Na verdade, todo o livro pretende passar a mensagem se queres que as coisas aconteçam, levanta-te e faz. Lamento, mas não acho que encontrarão mais que isso.
