    Story
    "This book is why I hate the publishing industry"

    There is good information here - I'm sure of it - but you have to slog through the worst kind of filler to get to it.

    It starts in the introduction. Instead of just saying "this book is for everyone" and leaving it at that, it painstakingly lists every profession, situation and human being that might ever have a use for the book.

    This happened repeatedly in the first two chapters of the book, list after long list when it could have been summed up in a sentence or two.

    This is filler of the worst kind because it's so blatant and lazy. It's an attempt for the publisher to increase the page count without increasing value. It only serves to aggravate and kill valuable time.

    The Ask is an opportunity ruined. I'll be The Asking for a refund.
