Liebe wider Willen:Roman. Deeanne Gist
One of the most underestimated - and challenging - positions in the world, the first lady of the United States must be many things: an inspiring leader with a forward-thinking agenda of her own; a savvy politician, skilled at navigating the treacherous rapids of Washington; a wife and mother operating under constant scrutiny; and an able CEO responsible for the smooth operation of countless services and special events at the White House. Now, former White House correspondent Kate Andersen Brower draws on a wide array of untapped, candid sources - from residence staff and social secretaries to friends and political advisers - to tell the stories of the 10 remarkable women who have defined that role since 1960. Brower offers new insights into this privileged group of remarkable women, including Jacqueline Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Patricia Nixon, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama. The stories she shares range from the heartwarming to the shocking and tragic, exploring everything from the first ladies´ political crusades to their rivalries with Washington figures; from their friendships with other first ladies to their public and private relationships with their husbands. She also offers a detailed and insightful new portrait of one of the most-watched first ladies of all time, Hillary Clinton, asking what her tumultuous years in the White House may tell us about her own historic presidential run, and what life could be like with the nation´s first first husband. Candid and illuminating, this first group biography of the modern first ladies provides a revealing look at life upstairs and downstairs at the world´s most powerful address.

This is a summary of Gary Taubes´ Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It, an eye-opening, myth-shattering examination of what makes us fat. In the book, Taubes visits the urgent question of what´s making us fat - and how we can change. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes´s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience. He reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century, none more damaging or misguided than the ´´calories-in, calories-out´´ model of why we get fat, and the good science that has been ignored, especially regarding insulin´s regulation of our fat tissue. He also answers the most persistent questions: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we avoid? Packed with essential information, Why We Get Fat is an invaluable key in our understanding of an international epidemic and a guide to what each of us can do about it, This summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don´t have the current time to listen to the whole thing. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer.
