I'll get on with the details because there is SO much to tell you about these books. Let me just point out how cool it is that CNN has partnered with Letts to create this line of products geared towards people who travel and/ or work internationally. Falling into that category myself, I can tell you that these products are not only very functional but also extremely useful for anyone who travels to other countries.
The CNN notebooks and diary are available at www.cnnlife.com. They come in a very nice gift box, shown above. The CNN Life products include a linen-covered notebook (the CNN LifePlus), a smaller leather-bound notebook (CNN LifeStyle), and a pocket size leather-bound diary (CNN LifeLine).
First, let me take you through the CNN LifePlus notebook, which is the large linen-covered one. (Click here for the CNN LifePlus product page.)
At the back of the book are several pages of cultural guides for doing business in various countries. I find these absolutely fascinating, and extremely accurate.
In the very back of the book are references for finding CNN online (with lots of website options), on television or on your mobile so you can stay connected and informed wherever you are in the world.
Next up is the CNN LifeStyle notebook with the sumptuous black leather cover. (Click here for the CNN LifeStyle notebook product page):
Last but certainly not least is the CNN LifeLine pocket diary. (Click here for the CNN LifeLine diary product page.):
This diary measures 8.5 cm by 15.2 cm. It is small and slim enough to take with you absolutely everywhere so you never miss the opportunity to schedule your appointments or capture information.
Inside the front cover is the time zone map as shown above in the large LifePlus notebook. There is a page to write in your personal information, then a two-page spread with the current year's planner:
There is a page about CNN Traveler (www.cnntraveler.com) which has excellent stories about locations all over the world. In the very back of the book is the information on connecting with CNN online, on tv an on your mobile as in the other CNN books.
As I said before, these books are very classy and sophisticated-looking. They have a very professional yet cool appearance. They would make an excellent gift for any traveler, or something you should get for yourself if you are an international professional.
These books arrived just when my husband and I discovered we will soon head back into the international arena, so we appreciate them that much more. Many thanks again to Letts for these excellent products!
