They're called 'amicable numbers,'and they're extremely rare.

Christopher Robin hugged Eeyore's neck.
"You are the very best of donkeys," he said.

As usual, coinciding with the movie release I've seen many comments of "the book was better". This statement or its brother "the movie was better" bother me!

Anyone who makes such a comment (hopefully) has both A. Read the book and B. Seen the movie. Either A preceded B or B preceded A. Doesn't having expectations from reading/watching the first render one incapable of evaluating the latter objectively?

The flaw of this book: Ms Sandberg's assumption that ambition is good. I say: Lean back.

A book by my friend (and two-time Ragnar running relay teammate) Robin Epstein! Luckily she's as clever a writer as she is a running assassin.
