This last one from Hachette sounds REALLY cool. It's by Jacques Attali and it's called "A Brief History of the Future - a brave and controversial look at the twenty-first century". From the dust jacket: "In the international best seller, world renowned economist and political adviser Jacques Attali predicts how our world will look not only in the coming decades but a century from now. Will there be global chaos, dominated by terrorists, pirates, dictators, devestating droughts, and rising floodwaters? Or will the planet be blessed with peace, prosperity, and greater freedom for mankind. While many unpredictable factors could change the course and timing of events, Attali argues that history flows in a single, stubborn direction that no upheaval, hoever momentous, can permanently deflect.
I can't wait to read this one!
Here is a beautiful looking book that was sent to me by the author Sarah Stonich (THANK YOU, SARAH!) She even sent a lovely hand written note inside, which is a very nice touch! First of all, look at that cover. Is that not georgous! And the review line on the bottom of the cover is what really hits home for me, "Any woman who ever had her heart cracked open by a man should read The Ice Chorus." Nuala O'Faolain. I started it the other night and so far it takes place in Ireland! And her writing style is beautiful!
