    I finally had a chance to read the book JEK brought me while I was in the hospital. The Widow Clicquot is a fascinating book about the woman behind the champagne.
    At a time when women were not in the workforce, let alone running companies, her entrepreneurial skills allowed her to build one of the giants of the champagne world.
    In addition to her personal story, and it's losses, victories, and tenacity, there is some interesting tidbits on the history of champagne making.
    All in all, a good read about a remarkable woman.

    Thanks, Eddie. Great book review!

    I would have guessed it was a gift from JEK.

    What a great gift idea - the book AND a bottle of Clicquot!! Is that a Carib I see in the picture, too?

    Yes, it's a Carib. JEK showed up with a HUGE basket, photos, posters, etc. gathered from all over the sbhonline community.
    I was heavily drugged at the time, so we couldn't pop the booze.

    I was in the market for a good read---and I generally prefer nonfiction/ biography--so I picked up a copy today! Thanks for the tip!
