Review: Win Shares

User Review  - Dan - Goodreads

I've read this book cover to cover probably fifteen times. While I don't always agree with his conclusions, the arguments are presented very well and it is an amazing piece of work. The book is no longer in print, but you can read updates to the system at James' website. Read full review

Review: Win Shares

User Review  - Arthur - Goodreads
