Michelle Obama had achieved so many things and had become one of the most iconic women in our era. She had become the first African American to serve in the role of First Lady of the United States of America and helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history while establishing herself as the advocate for women empowerment and health and wellness around the world. She stood beside her husband as they survived some of the most harrowing experiences of their lives. All while raising two down-to-earth daughters despite the unforgiving media glare.
 
Her memoir is a work of introspection and reflection with inspiring storytelling. Michelle Obama chronicles her experiences—from her childhood in the South Side of Chicago to her first years as a mother, to her eight years spent in the White House. She describes her victories as well as her failures in her public and private life—showing her full story as she had lived it. Warm and reflective, Becoming is a personal revelation of a woman with soul and substance who continues to defy expectation and to inspire us to do the same.

    JUST ONE PAGE !!! !!! !!!
     
    The key idea of this handbook is to introduce an innovative, practical and visual presentation of the English Language Tense system on one page only. This unique and distinctive grammar presentation on a vector line demonstrates all the major tense systems on the basis of a step-by-step approach, depending on the study level. Starting from the Elementary level, continued by the Pre-Intermediate level and finally, the Intermediate level – JUST ONE PAGE is divided into three levels and for each specific section, practical tips, instructions and guidelines are provided. No necessity to sit and read for several hours hundreds of pages of academic grammar theory. 
     
    The JUST ONE PAGE grammar system presents the most significant features of each tense, thus, 22 tenses in English Language grammar are depicted on a single page. It enables a learner to obtain the key knowledge quickly, based on understanding a tense practical application using “signal words” (which are called “time adverbs” in grammar books), rather than pure academic theory memorising and, finally, learn correct application of the Tense system in language practice. This systematic approach has proved to be effective and attractive for over 25 years and has helped numerous students to learn English grammar quickly, effectively and easily.

    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK 
    The Secret is a self-help book about the power of positive thinking by Rhonda Byrne. The book is based on a pseudo-scientific theory called the law of attraction the principle that like attracts like. Specifically, Byrne focuses on the idea that your dreams do in fact come true thinking about money and wealth will attract these very things, causing them to manifest in your life. Likewise, fretting over a worst-case scenario will only cause your fears to be realized. Hence the importance of positive thinking. There are no accidents and bad luck. Instead Byrne writes, Your life right now is a reflection of your past thoughts.
    Throughout the book, Byrne intersperses quotes from proponents of the law of attraction, such as Jack Canfield, creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. These experts believe the law to be supported by quantum physics, arguing that it is a law of nature like gravity. According to Byrne, the mind is a magnet, emitting and receiving frequencies to and from the Universe. Each thought sends out a signal, which is turn gathers similar frequencies due to the law of attraction before returning back to you. In this fashion, your mind can bring you anything you desire dream of a new house, and somehow, someway, it will come to you. On the flip side, dwelling on war and poverty will only perpetuate these evils. Byrne even proposes that too much negative thinking can put you in the path of a natural disaster or terrorist attack. 
    The rest of the book explores different methods of using the law of attraction to your advantage. The primary technique is ask, believe, receive. This process involves imagining what you desire and pretending that you already have it. For example, Byrne suggests filling out a fake check and pretending to buy all the things youve always wanted. Doing so, she says, will make you wealthy.
