About this product
- DescriptionBorn in London, and having lost his grandmother, father and mother in 11 months at the age of 15, Hanks, a graduate of the prestigious Dartmouth College, model, actor and former professional basketball player, describes how following the direction of strong women still enabled him to fulfill his dreams. With references to celebrities Oprah, Maya Angelou, Jackie McCullough, Germaine Greer, Yanna Darili, Victoria Beckham, Barbara Walters and others, Hanks lists over 30 traits which these women of excellence embody. Are you A Woman of Excellence or A Needy Woman? Additionally, while discussing The Hook Up phemen, Hanks poses and answers the central question of the 2000s, who has the power? Is it Sex In The City's Samantha or the woman who chooses to focus on her career: happy if a man comes along and quite frankly, very happy if a man doesn't come along? Entertaining, thought-provoking and certain to cause controversy, The Great Lie stands as a polemic encased in a work of art.
- Author BiographyHanks ran track up until the age of 15 when a teammate introduced him to the game of basketball. Although a relatively latecomer to the game, he was still able to try out for NBA teams Portland, Milwaukee, Denver, Charlotte and then play for five seasons in Europe. It was in Greece, after fulfilling his contract that he entered the field of Entertainment as an actor and model. Under the tutelage of Yanna Darili, the Greek answer to Diane Sawyer and Oprah, Hanks also learned the important ropes to television broadcasting. A graduate of the prestigious Dartmouth College with a major in Sociology and a concentration in Women Studies, Hanks currently works as a motivational speaker and is also putting together a television show for the group belonging to Oprah and Geraldine Laybourne in New York.
