When virtual reality becomes real enough that people feel as if they're being transported to another world, Valia Online arrives. A man running from his past joins the game to forget it all. Calling himself Jack Thorn, he chooses an undead race, Deathlord. A mage by choice, and a swordsman by necessity, he soon finds out that he'll need to use much more than magic and steel to survive; strategy, creativity, and carefully chosen words can often accomplish what simple attacks can't.

I don't know where to begin with this one... This book seems like it was written by a 16 year old. It's just so unbelievably bad I hardly managed to finish it... The sub par narration didn't help much either

For eons, conquering dungeons has been the most efficient way to become a strong adventurer. Although not everything is as straightforward as it seems. Several questions have always plagued the minds of those who enter these mythical places of power: why are there so many monsters? Where do the amazing weaponry and heavy gold coins come from? Why does the very air fill with life-giving energies? Cal has all of the answers to these age-old questions, for a very simple reason. He is a Dungeon Heart.

Must read for anyone who enjoys any of post-apocalyptic, end of the world or zombie disease genres. The book she's a light onto the lonely existence of the last human survivor, and has a pretty cool plot twist toward the end. Just so you know, the movie adaptation of 2007 with Will Smith is quite different from the book.

This book won't teach you how to start coaching. It does have some value but it's not enough. It also isn't a good entry point to the topic, so if only recommend it if you are already well on your learning path but would like some additional materials.
