    "so so ok"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I've read a lot of these type books and like others its mostly common sense so I would not recommend to a friend unless this was the first book of this type they had ever read.

    "Don't Bother!"

    This book is nothing like they say. You might as well say this brainwashing tool.
