Chanel: A Woman of Her Own, by Axel Madsen.
Model, The ugly business of beautiful woman, by Michael Gross.
Andrew Carnegie, by David Nasaw
Each book is very detailed and fun to read, each his historic and shares real insight timelines and is inspirational. I love the way these writers write, I can understand it and it doesn't feel like school! Also Chanel and Andrew Carnegie are both short successes!
