This very slim book didn't contain a lot of "meat" in terms of useful information. There were also a LOT of typos. I wasn't impressed. It's definitely a subject that bears writing about but I didn't feel this book offered enough depth or quality of information to be helpful to me.

A few good nuggets, overall I've seen much worse, but I wasn't very impressed. It's short, but does cover a decent amount of ground. Heck, it's only 4 bucks.

I have never written a review for a book before. I usually read the reviews of others before I buy but, here I felt compelled to write a review. If you buy this book I assume you are in grade school (K-3). Their is no value to the book or the content in the book for a person aged in years more than 9 to read. The pages of the book have a higher value for use as spit balls than they do for the content the author has put in it. I use the word author with doubt because I don't a think a person should ever refer to themselves as an author for this book. I would refer to him as a hack. A five minute search in Google will result in more valuable content than what was in this pamphlet.
