Follow step by step...

I am bummed it isn't at least 200 more pages. I am finished, and now more focused on my writing than ever before. This book solidified my avenue of attack. My resolve is made. <inside jokes about portions of the book.>

Of course if it were longer, I'd have more of a reason to hold off on writing. Perfect size.

If you listen to the audiobook, you will most likely need to purchase the paper version for notes. just an fyi.
