Summary

Created sometime around 1592, "The Taming of the Shrew" is one of Shakespeare's most loved comedies.
It's the story of a strong-minded woman, Katharina, who yields to an equally stubborn man. The play describes the volatile courtship between the shrewish Katharina and the canny Petruchio, who is determined to subdue Katharina’s legendary temper and win her dowry.
Once again, Shakespeare explores the arena of love, delighting audiences throughout the centuries.

The play begins in an unusual and remarkable way; the main story is offered as a play within a play. We see a drunk commoner, Sly, being tricked by a wealthy lord into thinking he is a lord. Sly begins to believe the trick that has been played on him, and settles down to watch a play, "The Taming of the Shrew". This seemingly random introduction has nothing to do with the actual plot of the play.

    The blessed Chapter, revealed in Mecca, has forty Verses. The designation of the Chapter, denoting Resurrection, derives from the opening Verse. The Chapter, as reflected in its title, mainly treats of the Day of Resurrection. It opens with an enumeration of the harsh and frightening incidents to occur at the end of the world and proceeds to make mention of the happy and sad appearances of the good and evil doers. 
    Further, the blessed Chapter deals with the states of mankind in the throes of death, the creation of man from a drop of semen as a token of Divine Omnipotence in recreating him. It is noteworthy that four Verses in the middle of the Chapter treat of the manner of Revelation and recitation of the Holy Qur’an. According to the traditions, one who perseveres in the recitation of the blessed Chapter and acts upon it shall be able to happily and smilingly cross the Bridge Spanning Hellfire (sirat).

    Audiobook Narrated and Written by Linda González 
    Breaking Through Your Own Glass Ceiling offers simple, proven prosperity practices to address power dynamics faced by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous,and People of Color) and other underrepresented communities. You can begin today to identify and uproot unhealthy patterns and replace them with consistent thoughts and behaviors to embrace a full-hearted life—even in environments that do not support your well-being. Many people attempt to navigate glass ceilings by reading self-help and motivational books that send the message that vision boards, meditation apps, and affirmations will compensate for exclusionary policies and laws. This book rejects the “one size fits all” approach to career development and self-care that leads people to internalize their own glass ceiling. If you are ready for a full-hearted breakthrough, this book can be your daily guide and inspiration.
