Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While the Quicklet briefly summarizes the main points, it also has the incredible flaw of not citing the quotes it uses from a specific page number. While I don't speculate it is made up, it seems absurd to insert a piece of the material and not citing exactly where it came from for readers, like me, to find and read as well. That is the main flaw I found with the book as it is frustrating to call this a "guide"
