The books in my personal library can be rated by the number of post it tabs. The more sticky notes, the better the book! I find this a keep by the chair type book to read in bits and pieces as the mood strikes. It appears not to be a straight through reader. Read, absorb and move on until another day. And yes, lots of sticky notes have been placed in this book. It is just as described--short notes on accepting failure, embracing life, and rising to your destiny--if nothing else, it brings inquisitive thinking to the frontline. Take what you can relate to and leave the rest.
