I've given The Book of Doing to several people already and just bought 10 more for future gifts for friends, colleagues and perhaps even a few strangers. When I tell them that a book is in the mail for them, they inevitably ask, "What is the book about"? My response is, "It is not a book you read, it is a book you do." I suggest you get one yourself and start doing!
Kudos to Allison for changing her life and so many others.
Looking to re-invent yourself, stir up your creativity or gain encouragement to launch your ideas and dreams, then you NEED this book as a reference guide. As a writer myself, its a great tool for writer's block or those looking for a creative breakthrough. Plus, the price is just right! Don't hesitate in buying this book!
