|New from||Used from|
I am impressed with the personality profiles. You clearly grasp the long term, psychological impact of the fugue coping mechanism, or taking flight, the identity disappearing, or creating an alternate, safer reality in response to trauma. Well done. --Mojgan Jahan, Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist
Oh my! OUTRAGEOUS is so realistic and vivid that I feel I am in the scenes. I can easily visualize the movie or cable series. Brilliant. --Jennifer Simms, Secret of the Lost Scroll, the movie, Producer and Writer --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
About the Author
The saga of Victoria Woodhull appeals to Neal, as it serves three purposes. First, the story provokes public awareness of the historical and continuing denigration and subjugation of gender prejudice. Second, the tale exposes the historical basis for the manipulation of the free markets of stocks, bonds and commodities. Third, the story shows how existing financial and political power structures used prison and seizure of assets to prevent innovation and social change. Victoria Woodhull overcame all these obstacles in a remarkable life.
Neal chose to write in first person using Victoria s words, thoughts, and point of view to tell the tale, inviting the reader to see through her eyes. The style is magical realism along the lines of Allende, Marquez, and Kathleen McGowan (The Magdalene Trilogy). This is an expression of the HeForShe solidarity movement for gender equality championed by Emma Watson, and Neal proudly proclaims himself a male feminist!
Prior to becoming an author, Neal formed and managed several businesses, specializing in finance, operations, marketing, and exit strategies. His work spanned advising and working for newly formed start-up, initial public offering, and Fortune 100 companies. Once a licensed securities broker, Mr. Katz is familiar with the financial markets from an insider s perspective. Neal has conceived and defined a new financial paradigm create jobs while providing continuous and renewable funding for many charitable endeavors, such as micro-finance, low income housing, vocational training, and infrastructure renewal.
Neal has pledged fifty percent (50%) of his author's royalties from book sales and ancillary revenues, including foreign print distribution and Hollywood rights to a foundation formed in tribute to Victoria Woodhull and her passion for woman rights. The foundation will promote and prove programs for the empowerment and sustainable economic improvement of women, especially single mothers. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Read on in the saga Thank You
The book focuses on a surprisingly strong, resilient woman who is called upon to rise above terrible circumstances and who applies her brains, friendships, and other available (and sometimes not so obvious) resources to do it. As I read about her, I also learned history in an easy-to-digest way. I highly recommend this book!
Sit yourself down in the 19th century. Think of the first woman to run for office -- Victoria Woodhull. Now imagine a brilliant black man as her running mate -- Frederick Douglass. Fireworks? You bet. Now imagine two women who had the first woman-owned seat on the stock exchange. Victoria and her sister. An uproar? Indeed.
Neal Katz's rendering of Victoria's rise to riches, told in first person, is a brilliant read. And for those who love Historical Fiction, 'Outrageous' is a must.
Also ... the holidays are coming. The book is gorgeous and would make a fine gift for anyone, politico or not.
