book was hard to get into--lots of explanations of research past and present. I skimmed most of it and finally put it down. Read full review

User Review  - Stefanie Lindeman - Goodreads

The type size was so small in this book that it was difficult to read. It also felt dated and overly technical. I'm sure the information was good, but I could not get into the book the way it was written. Read full review

User Review  - Santino Maguire - Goodreads

More like 1.5 stars. I think this would have been a more interesting/helpful book if I considered myself a pessimist. It's pretty dry reading for anyone. Read full review
