    "straight forward, happy book"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a easy listen, and a simple reminder to own your actions and vibes. The chapters are short, so you get a positive message in short period of time without trying to recall where you left off.

    "Surprisingly great little listen!"

    I'm a dog lover and so this appealed to me on many levels. His analogy is SO accurate though.....we all love a smiling and tail wagging pooch!
    I will make this a regular listen!
