Domestic Diva. Media Mogul. Convenient Scapegoat. The life of Martha Stewart—in her own words.

“Without an open-minded mind, you can never be a great success.”

“I catnap now and then, but I think while I nap, so it’s not a waste of time.”

“I want you to know that I am innocent—and that I will fight to clear my name.”

“All the things I love is what my business is all about.”

With her release from prison, Martha Stewart has a new lease on life and her career—and shows no sign of stopping. Love her or hate her, even her critics acknowledge she is a unique success and a true American original in business. As her own words prove well, Martha Stewart can be insightful, candid, irreverent, strategic, no-nonsense, ironic, straightforward, combative, competitive— and most of all—original.

This exclusive collection shares her thoughts on business life and ambition, work and family, being the boss, leadership, creativity, success, privacy, and more—as she confided them to friends and family, as she proclaimed in her writings, speeches, and press conferences, and even when she thought no one was listening.

This is a collection of quotes from Martha Stewart. The Amazon description says the book contains 256 pages, but the actual amount is about 150 pages of text with a lot of space between the quotes - probably comparable to a full size book with less than 100 pages.

The text begins with a multi-page biography. Then it continues with pages of quotes from Martha. Several full-page black and white photos are placed throughout the chapters, including the famous photo of Martha holding a rolling pin. Most of the quotes are from the late 1990's through 2003. Devoted fans will enjoy them more than newcomers to Martha's world.

I bought the hardcover version new for only $0.99 + shipping from one of Amazon's linked sellers. At this price it was a bargain. However, this book is strictly for Martha fans. If you are looking for a detailed biography or an engaging long story, then choose something else. Due to its short length, I would not recommend paying full price.

This book could be read in an entire sitting, if desired. Or you could read a few pages during each session. The format allows the reader to suspend reading at anytime and resume later. Travelers and commuters will find this very useful.

Love her or hate her, it's hard to avoid her. Martha Stewart is today's reigning expert on all things domestic. She's the U.S. queen of homemaking how-to and her magazines, books and TV shows are packed with instructions on everything from how to make a Christmas ornament to how to fold a fitted sheet. The world watched in fascination as this woman, who was perfectionism personified, ended up in jail in a stock trading scandal. Now Martha enthusiasts can get inside her head by reading her thoughts, opinions and musings in her own words. Just decide for yourself if editor Bill Adler compiled this collection of pithy, insightful quotes to capitalize on Stewart's notoriety or to offer new information, depth and insight. Divided into chapters of quotes, Adler's book faithfully records Martha's feelings on entertaining, fame, business, the stock scandal, her critics and herself. We believe that her devotees might enjoy this inside track to Martha's view of the world, but the book may not hold the same allure for those outside her fan base. We're still waiting for the deeper take on Martha, the entrepreneur and business mastermind.

A long time ago, I remember liking THE KENNEDY WIT--edited

by Bill Adler . . . he then came out with several books of a similar

nature, including THE UNCOMMON WISDOM OF JACQUELINE

KENNEDY ONASSIS and THE QUOTABLE GUILIANI . . . in

all of these, he collected memorable quotes and comments (by

others) about the personality involved and put them into a short,

but insightful book that gave me a real feel for the person.

Adler does the same with his latest, THE WORLD ACCORDING

TO MARTHA . . . he presents Martha Stewart in her own words and

in doing so, gave me a glimpse into her world . . . it almost felt

like she was talking to me directly.

I also liked the accompanying photos.

But best of all were Stewart's musings on a wide variety of subjects,

including:

* What do they need and want? These are our mantras.

* I think animals really add something to a household. I can't imagine a

house that's empty, quiet, without any animals. I just think animals

are charming. . . . The animals are always bringing me joy and

always bringing me happiness. And when they're ill, I worry a lot

about them. . . . All my animals are extremely pampered. In fact,

most of my friends said they would like to come back as one of

my pets.

* I'm bothered by things that hurt people, like smoking, like drinking

in excess, like being mean. If people choose to paint their house

a hideous color, that doesn't bother me. I won't tell them outright

their choice is really bad. But I'll do that for smoking.

Naturally, there was even some useful homemaking advice:

* Get that stuff off the bookcases that doesn't belong there and give

those books you'll never read to the library for a sale. Get rid of that

faddish junk you never use in those kitchen drawers. And take out

that rosebush you hate. It's simplify, simplify, simplify.

* This may seem backward to some, but it makes perfect sense.

When you fold the sheet back, the finished edge, monogram or

other decorative detail faces up.

Although it begins with an 11-page bare-bones bio, this book spends most of its pages reprinting quotes from Martha Stewart from the past 20 years. The sayings are categorized by subject: what she's had to say about herself, her fans, her critics, her customers, on holidays, on weddings, on marriage, on pets, on serving jail time, etc. I guess we were supposed to learn a lot about her by what she has said on each topic. Instead, the result here is a superficial look at a complex woman and entrepreneur that really doesn't add to our knowledge or appreciation of her. Full-page b&w photos of Martha are sprinkled throughout the book. One wonders what Martha herself will think of such a bland volume, since it disregards one of her mantras, "Make it beautiful." If you're really in the mood to learn more about her, pick up her latest title, "The Martha Rules." Intended as a guide for people starting their own businesses, that book includes more insight into her past and daily life than this one does.
