Only gave this 1 star, since I had to rate it , to write a review. This free book was not worth my time to down load, I look forward to my Fridays free e-books from Barnes & Noble, this was so disappointing, even tho it was free, I have traveled to some extent, this book would never even come close to helping me, its not even a story..cant wait to delete it...
