Knowing how much Mom liked Michael Stern, I knew his book would be honestand it is. I Had a Ball is full of stories no one but Michael would know. His friendship with Mom is evident on every page. A good read. Thank you, Michael (Desi Arnaz Jr.). Michaels memories are my memories, only clearer. What a talent for details! It was very moving for me to relive so much of our lives through Michaels eyes. Very entertaining. Charming. And, more importantly, true. As Mom wrote on one of her photos to him, Happy Thoughts (Lucie Arnaz). I am a big fan of Michael Stern. Yes, I know, hes the fan of all fans, and as a writer, hes opened his special door and shared real time with Lucille Ball. But Michael is beyond fan-hood. He is a doer, a volunteer, and I know that from his over-forty-year relationship helping Actors and Others for Animals. Lucy and little Lucie started the ball (no pun intended) rolling at the very first fundraiser and stayed the course. And Michael continues to respect Lucys passion. His love for Lucy is legendary. And his value for all players is evident in his actions. Thank you, Michael, for making us all feel so good (Jackie Joseph). I have known Michael since he was a teenager. He was such a fan of Lucy and always appeared at filming of her shows or other events Lucy attended. One time, Lucys mom, DeDe, took him backstage to meet Lucy in person. Lucy told him if he wanted to be her number one fan, he would have to stay in school and get a job. Lucy loved her fans, and they were important to her. Lucy did indeed call Michael her number one fan. He has been my very good friend, and he still is a very nice young man. His book has brought back many happy memories. He knew the Lucy we all loved (Wanda Clark secretary of Lucille Ball). In 1971, ten-year-old Michael Stern thought he had died and gone to heaven as he watched a filming of Heres Lucy. He was enthralled with a redhead gifted with beauty, stage presence, and the ability to make others laugh. Over the next few years, he would attend several more filmings, meet Lucy, and eventually become (in Lucys own words) her number one fan. In his memoir, Michael Stern offers a refreshing glimpse into the life of a natural comedienne and actress as he provides a fascinating narrative on what it was like to become first a fan and then a friend with one of the biggest television personalities of all time. Known to fans simply as Lucy, she entertained millions of people across the world with shows like I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show, and Heres Lucy. But to Michael, who was eventually allowed access into her private world, she was a fascinating woman with whom he would share many unforgettable adventures. I Had a Ball is a unique tribute to Lucys legacy, her spirit, her talent, and her enthusiasm for lifesure to entertain Lucy fans, television aficionados, and comedy lovers around the world.

A bold and inspiring memoir and manifesto from a renowned voice in the women's leadership movement who shows women how to cultivate the single skill they really need in order to thrive: the ability to let go. Once the poster girl for doing it all, after she had her first child, Tiffany Dufu struggled to accomplish everything she thought she needed to in order to succeed. Like so many driven and talented women who have been brought up to believe that to have it all, they must do it all, Dufu began to feel that achieving her career and personal goals was an impossibility. Eventually, she discovered the solution: letting go. In Drop the Ball, Dufu recounts how she learned to reevaluate expectations, shrink her to-do list, and meaningfully engage the assistance of others—freeing the space she needed to flourish at work and to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships at home. Even though women are half the workforce, they still represent only eighteen per cent of the highest level leaders. The reasons are obvious: just as women reach middle management they are also starting families. Mounting responsibilities at work and home leave them with no bandwidth to do what will most lead to their success. Offering new perspective on why the women’s leadership movement has stalled, and packed with actionable advice, Tiffany Dufu’s Drop the Ball urges women to embrace imperfection, to expect less of themselves and more from others—only then can they focus on what they truly care about, devote the necessary energy to achieving their real goals, and create the type of rich, rewarding life we all desire.
