The End of War: How Waging Peace Can Save Humanity&hellip by Gavin de Becker

Captain Paul K. Chappell is a soldier, warrior, and peacemaker. He's also a superb writer who can put his thoughts on paper in logical, easy to understand, and often moving words.

Jo even talks about how to choose a name for yourself that is unique, and adds that "when you take your earrings off, you mean business."

Unlike Jo's earlier DVDs, Honey and Spice: Sensual and Fierce Burlesque and Silk and Feathers: Burlesque Fan Dance which required special costumes, this DVD is so terrific because it uses readily available clothing, that you might have in your closet, and shows us… Read more
