I really, really, REALLY love books like this- jam-packed with tidbits that you can read in a minute, or sit down and read several in a row. Read morePublished on June 4, 2012 by Mark Adkins
Great concept. Not as substantive as I had hoped. Some very clever and unexpected tips. But a lot of predictable content as well.Published on April 18, 2012 by LisaCebes
