David Faber who’s CNBC’s prime time special, “UNTOLD WEALTH: The Rise of the Super Rich” just aired is now deep into the other “untold” world, reading "LUSH LIFE"by Richard Price.
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera fresh from her recent trip to that magical place, Ireland is tackling James Joyce’s “A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN”.
And from our LA Bureau, Jane Wells is enjoying how Janis Cooke Newman has rewritten history in her bestseller "MARY". The novel is about Mary Todd Lincoln – and it’s unlike any history class I ever sat in. Jane says the book is full of sexual tension and that she’ll never ever be able to think of the Ol’ Honest One in the same way.
If you’re still looking for some great reads this summer, here are three new titles of books I’ll soon be writing more about:
If you loved "BRAND WARFARE" and "CAREER WARFARE" – you’re going to love "EXECUTIVE WARFARE: 10 Rules of Engagement For Winning Your War for Success" by David R. D’Alessandro with Michele Owens. Mr. D’Alessandro is a frequent guest on CNBC and his past books were bestsellers.
