Mary Kay Ash, one of America's most dynamic businesswomen, lived her life with simple and timeless principles. Through her uncomplicated formula for success -- God first, family second and career third -- she achieved her dream.She inspired. She motivated. She cared. Mary Kay often said that if you expect great things, great things will happen. So expect results. Expect success. Miracles happen.
Mary Kay Ash knew when she created her dream company that its success would largely depend on the principles upon which it was founded. In her wisdom, she realized that by building a solid foundation, and never wavering from it, she would distinguish her company and set the stage for women to succeed for decades to come. Mary Kay herself said, "The Company bears my name, but it has a life of its own. The true success is the lives that have changed for the better." Today, the independent sales force wholeheartedly embraces Mary Kay's vision of enriching women's lives. Because she believed that women would understand and support her mission, her legacy will continue to grow, inspiring generations of women around the world to believe that miracles happen.

It could be said that her legendary status comes from creating a brand that's a household name, or from the marvelous marketing prowess by which she virtually owns the color pink. She could be lauded as one of the greatest executives to ever lead a company. Indeed, all of those plaudits would be true. But what endears the late MARY KAY ASH far beyond cosmetics, business genius, or financial success is her role as a champion of women. It is a role now celebrated by four generations of women on five continents who are part of an independent sales force family that numbers more than one million. In 1963, Mary Kay Ash set out to change women's lives for the better. In 1981, she wrote this autobiography to provide a personal perspective on her remarkable journey. Not only was it a bestseller but today there are more than two million copies in print. Her other two books also achieved bestseller acclaim.
A self-described "ordinary woman with extraordinary determination," Mary Kay Ash often said that she aimed to provide opportunities for women that did not exist during the twenty-five years when she was a working mother struggling to make ends meet. "When we began in 1963, we meant to change the lives of a few people. Instead we are changing the world," she wrote in her company magazine in 1989.
After decades of success, Mary Kay was asked what it was that motivated her now that she had achieved so much. Her words spoke volumes about her quest and the company's mission to enrich women's lives: "If today one more woman learns how great she really is, then for me it has been a great day."
What Mary Kay did for the economic liberation of women is what truly secures her legacy and extends it past the vast boundaries of her beloved native Texas. How she did it is a success story that has captured the hearts and minds of the world. This is her story in her own words. It is followed by an epilogue that reflects on the life of this most remarkable woman.

Summary: Sophie Fontanel, bestselling novelist and iconic editor of French "Elle," tells the provocative story of her decision to stop having sex--a choice that profoundly changed her view of herself and her place in the world. At the age of twenty-seven, after many years of having (and, for the most part, enjoying) an active sex life, beloved French author, journalist, editor, and fashion blogger Sophie Fontanel decided she wanted to take a break. Despite having it all--a glamorous job, plenty of dates and boyfriends, stylish clothes, and endless parties to attend--she still wasn't happy, and found herself wanting more. She chose to give up her sex life, and in so doing shocked all of her friends and colleagues. What she discovers about herself is truly liberating and raises a number of questions about the expectations of the society in which we live. As she experiences being the only non-coupled one at dinner parties, weekend getaways, and summer vacations, she muses inspiringly on what it means to find hap-piness and fulfillment alone. Provocative and illuminating, "The Art of Sleeping Alone," which spent eight weeks on the bestseller list in France, offers advice on love and sex while challenging modern-day conven-tions of marriage and motherhood, making this an ideal read for anyone who has chosen to do things a little differently.
