Su questo libro:

Riassunto: This memoir is a hilarious and touching account of growing up in the rural midwest and transitioning into Oklahoma and corporate America. Spanning a time period from the 1940's to the present, it colorfully portrays the idiosyncrasies of these cultures. Zany tales (you can't make this stuff up) of a life fully lived (sometimes the author does things she shouldn't) are guaranteed to produce robust chuckles. If you read this book on an airplane, the person next to you will be peeking over your shoulder. The author's style is quirky and outrageously funny. She generously shares lessons learned, which are valuable and comedic insights into living life wisely and joyfully. Readers of all ages will benefit from her counsel and be royally entertained in the process. Savvy tips on raising children, engaging teenagers. embracing sisterhood, and treasuring the joys and duties of grand parenting are novel and astute. Generation gaps and aging are artfully portrayed and inspire appreciation for all stages of life. This book entertains, lifts the spirit, and encourages living life full out. The characters are a hoot, the historical references educational, and the lighthearted stories fascinating. It is a fun, hopeful, enlightening read. Out of Iowa - Into Oklahoma contains touching accounts of losing parents, saving newborn babies, climbing the corporate ladder, and working through the emotional strains of divorce and romance gone wrong. Inspirational accounts of adjusting to retirement and the consequences of aging encourage those experiencing their "encore years" to face the downsides with humor, to relish the up side, and to share their wisdom. The author challenges boomers to role model for the young how purposeful and rewarding aging can be, suggesting that we owe them that as part of our legacy. Doing otherwise places an unfair burden on those who follow. Characters are revealed in colorful detail. You will fall in love with this family. Dad is a hoot, Mom a rock, Grandma a "delightful terror," and a band of ornery, diverse brothers are rambunctious co-conpirators in childhood shenanigans. The author's interactions with rowdy, reckless cowboys (it's like a dog chasing a race car), and corporate executives (Who died and left them in charge?) are fascinating and delightfully portrayed. Feisty girlfriends (who can never have too much fun and often make bad decisions) and delightful grandchildren (who hide peas in their milk) round out the key players. This book is rich with "lessons learned." Examples are: Don't pack children's toys that vibrate in your luggage. If you swear in front of children, don't follow up with "Oh shit!" Don't ask an older person how they feel unless you really want to know. March Madness is not a sale at Macy's. If a man is quiet, it does not necessarily mean he is mysterious, he may just be stupid. "Capture Life," a companion book to "Out of Iowa - Into Oklahoma," describes the rewards and challenges of writing a memoir and uses excerpts from "Out of Iowa" to illustrate biographical writing techniques. Together these books are a perfect gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, and for anyone whose life story has not yet been captured. Here are some of the topics in "Out of Iowa: Too Many Whelms--Just trying to matter My Life Has Come to This? Somewhat Lucky Free-Range Chickens and Free-Range Children IOWA--Idiots Out Wandering Around Losing Parents--You Kids Take Care of Each Other D-I-V-O-R-C-E--Independence Day and The Rally You Are Never Free of Your Children Saving Babies--Stronger Than They Seem Children Are Dirt That Makes Noise A Home That Rises Up to Greet You A Recliner with Back Fat Girlfriends - You Can Never Have Too Much Fun Hunting: "I sees it, I kills it, I eats It" The Next Thirty Years - The Encore Years Just by Being, You Are Enough What Just Happened? You Can't Make This Stuff Up--Raccoon Attacks Working Out--Tennis Shoes and Black Socks Lessons Learned--Roadkill Lullabies, etc.

L'autore: Nikki Hanna has a B. S. Degree in education and journalism, and an M.B.A in business administration. Now a retired C.P.A. and Toastmaster, Nikki began climbing the corporate ladder in the 70's and eventually became a senior executive in a large corporation. Nikki is now retired from the corporate world and following her lifelong dream of writing. She lectures on leadership, management, and biographical writing, and speaks at colleges and universities as well as professional, charity, senior, and women's organizations. Her wit and savvy make her presentations inspiring, entertaining, and enlightening. Hanna was raised on an Iowa farm, lived in Chicago, and ultimately in Oklahoma where she was exposed to "the cowboy culture." Her colorful portrayal of those experiences and the dichotomy of the world in which she lived and the corporate one in which she worked provide rich fodder for her memoir "Out of Iowa - Into Oklahoma." It is a hilarious account of growing up in the rural midwest and transitioning into a metropolitan lifestyle. She writes comedically on aging, generation gaps, adapting to technology, grand parenting, girlfriend adventures, and lessons learned. The book is humorous and touching. The author's "how to" book on biographical writing, "Capture Life," reflects her passion for inspiring others to document their lives. People believe their life is not interesting or that they cannot write. Neither of these are true. People also think they have more time to do it. Maybe. "Capture Life" includes an action plan that takes the reader through the processes of writing, producing, and publishing a beautiful biography that everyone will want to read. As companion gifts, "Out of Iowa" and "Capture Life" inspire the reader to tell his own life story--a gift to future generations, a legacy. Hanna's book "Leadership Savvy" is rich with clever and fresh advice for both seasoned and aspiring leaders. Her background in dynamic, production-intensive environments equips her to convey proven strategies designed to make a leader stand out by promoting employee loyalty and building an energized work force. "Leadership Savvy" includes: 10 Most Common Leadership Mistakes 10 Management myths 5 Keys to Career Success. Hanna's clever approaches to leadership are unique, insightful, and designed to create savvy leaders who stand out from the crowd. All her books encourage personal growth while entertaining the reader. www.nikkihanna.com neqhanna@sbcglobal.net
