Life of the Party by: Bob Kealing


I won an ARC of this book from the publishers through Read It Forward.

I listened to this book on audio.  This is the story of Brownie Wise who is known to be the woman who lead the way for other women into the home sales business.  Brownie had to figure out a way to make enough money to live comfortably and raise her son after her divorce.

At the same time, Earl Tupper was about to revolutionize the way the households kept and preserved their food.  Tupper created Tupperware and Brownie Wise brought it into homes across America.  This was a powerhouse of a team.  However, like the saying goes: “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”  The power went to Brownie’s head and that eventually led to her complete disappearance from the home party world.  This is her story.

I thought this book had potential.  I never really knew of the story behind the Tupperware home parties although I am very attuned to the home party sales industry.  The book itself was a bit slow and may have had a bit to much unnecessary details for my liking.

I gave this book 2 crowns.
