User Review  - J. E. Ensell -

I was totally disappointed in this book. I found out why it was printed with a hard cover, the content was so light weight, it would have floated off my shelf otherwise. Let me save you $8, "good attitudes: good, bad attitudes: bad". You just got the majority of the book. Read full review
