From the Author
"It is my philosophy that the skills in this book and others do not represent a model of social correctness. They are, however, ideas of how to behave that may help students reach their own goals. . . . The message is, dont alter the uniqueness that makes you special in so many great waysjust add to what you can do." Dr. Jed Baker
