The formatting on the Kindle addition of this book is terrible. Some pages have numerous different fonts of varying sizes on the same page. Honestly, it looks like someone just threw this together over a weekend. Besides the formatting, there isn't much here. It's a bunch of blog posts collected and sold as a book. The posts are short, and the book itself is very short. When I opened the book on Kindle Cloud Reader, with an average sized font, I counted only 78 pages of text, many of which were only partial pages. Save your money.

Great little book, short snippets of very valuable information. Highly suggested. I am already putting some of the ideas to work and it's making a difference.
