Fifteen Central Park West,
the World's Most Powerful Address


Michael Gross

It might be insanely expensive, but don't tell that to former "Police" lead singer Sting a.k.a. Gordon Mathew Thomas Sumner or, N.Y. Yankee slugger, Alex Rodriquez...these wealthy celebrities share the world's most powerful address with Goldman-Sachs chief Lloyd Blankfein and Developer Donald Trump and many other incredibly wealthy men and women who live in the two towers at 15 Central Park West in New York's ultra tony Westside. Kari talks with "Travel & Leisure" contributing Editor and Author Michael Gross about the experience of living at the ultra-luxurious so-called "Limestone Jesus", New York's most coveted address. You'll learn that Real Estate Development in Gotham is not for faint of heart!

A Novel


Justin Go

In his premiere novel, Author Justin Go paints powerful portraits of two parallel love stories...one developing during World War One, the other in the present day. Back in 1916, British 2nd Lieutenant Ashley Walsingham's one week love affair with Imogen Soames-Andersson compels him to leave his entire fortune to her. He dies in a climbing expedition in 1924...Imogen seemingly disappears. Fast-forward to the present, when San Francisco grad student Tristan Campbell learns he's the only heir to Imogen's fabulous inheritance...IF he can prove his lineage. In Paris, Tristan meets and falls for a Mirielle...will theirs be a tryst or true love? This story exposes the seemingly capricious nature of Love and the deep and indelible mark it can carve on the human heart.

The Science and Art of Self-Assurance – What Women Should Know


Katty Kay

& Claire Shipman

katty kay_claire_shipman


Did you know that we're actually born with 25 to 50% of our innate ability to express confidence? Whether we're genetically advantaged or not, confidence can and often does trump competence when it comes to professional and personal success! But women aren't buying it. They're holding back, letting over-thinking and perfectionism impede their progress. In their new book, the BBC's Washington Correspondent, Katty Kay, and ABC News' "Good Morning America" contributor, Claire Shipman talk with Kari about the latest scientific findings on how women can build confidence and enjoy authentic success by doing, not just thinking. Want confidence? Act now!
