User Review  - Elaine - Goodreads

This isn't one to read from front to back, but to dip into and extrapolate information that's pertinent to one's particular needs. I'd checked it out of the library and liked it so well that I plan on buying it so I can go back to it when I need to jump-start my good habits. Read full review
