In Erik Spoelstra: The Inspiring Life and Leadership Lessons of One of Basketball's Greatest Coaches, you will learn the story of one of basketball's premier coaches, Erik Spoelstra. In his tenure as the head coach of the Miami Heat, Spoelstra has been responsible for guiding the Heat to four NBA Finals appearances and two NBA Championships. He is most known for coaching the Heat during the Big Three era of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. Even after the end of the Big Three era, Spoelstra has remained highly regarded in the league due to his ability to bring out the best from the players he has available on his rosters. Most recently in the 2016-2017 season, Spoelstra led the Heat to a 41-41 finish, despite the team starting their season 10-31.

Rose was a member of The French Resistance, but her acts of fearless bravery made a positive effect on countries all over the world. This is the story of an ordinary woman who proved that one person can make an enormous difference when they have a positive goal and positive intentions.

Rose's entire life will be examined, but her actions during World War II and her participation with the Monuments Men will be the main focus of this book.

Rose was a very smart woman, and she attended many of France's top art universities. She accepted an employment opportunity as an assistant curator for the Jeu de Paume Museum in Paris, France. There are many important museums in Paris, but the Jeu de Paume Museum was not as well-known as the other museums in the city. This all changed when the Germans invaded France and then occupied the city of Paris.

Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle's Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances includes: Summary of the book A Review Analysis & Key Takeaways A detailed "About the Author" section Preview: Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle, is a collection of three interrelated audiobooks about teenage romance. The first audiobook is The Jubilee Express, by Maureen Johnson, which is written from the perspective of 16-year-old Jubilee Dougal. When her parents are arrested during a shopping event that went out of control, Jubilee is put on a train to Florida to spend Christmas with her grandparents. This is far from ideal for a variety of reasons, first and foremost because Jubilee will miss her boyfriend Noah's Christmas Eve party. Unfortunately, she has no choice. On the train, Jubilee makes a new friend, Jeb, who's headed to Graceland, North Carolina to see his girlfriend, Addie. Just outside of Graceland, a blizzard causes the train to wreck. Jubilee, (and, later Jeb), hike to a nearby Waffle House where she's welcomed by Keun, the assistant manager. There, Jubilee meets Stuart, a young man who offers to let her stay at his home. His mother wouldn't want anyone to spend Christmas alone. Ready to leave the Waffle House, Jubilee agrees. Before they depart, a miserable Jeb, whose phone isn't working, asks them to tell Addie, if they happen to run into her, that he's on his way. Though it seems thoroughly unlikely that Jubilee and Stuart will run into Addie - who they don't even know, in any case - they agree. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Gilboe.

Fresh out of college, I was eager to get myself a proper, grown-up job. So when I saw that Hollywood producer and force to be reckoned with Maxine Powers was in need of a personal assistant, I wanted to make sure the job was mine. She had a reputation for being demanding, and I was nervous going in, but I had no idea just how demanding she could be, nor how eager I would be to please her in every possible way! I was inexperienced, sure, but my I was banking on my enthusiasm to carry me through her every humiliating demand! But the big test was yet to be determined: Could a straight, sheltered girl like myself make her purr with happiness? Or would I be tossed out on my innocent little behind?

As she spoke, she came up to me and began unbuttoning my buttons, smoothly, nonchalantly, and with poise, like an elegant mother getting her daughter ready for a bath. Once the buttons were undone, she came behind me and pulled it off of me, hanging it up on the coat rack near the door. "There we are. Nobody is going to disturb us now that I have the door locked. So you can get as comfortable as you like. Being nervous is no crime," she said gently, and her tone comforted me greatly. "So long as it doesn't get in the way of your work. And we're here to determine if you can do the work. Can you manage the skirt yourself?" I nodded and pulled it off, leaving me in the cream body suit, red scarf, hose and my Mary-Janes. 1.
