    Check First!!!!

    The sample sucked! It was only 6 pages of nothing but weird numbers. Make sure that you check with someone before you accidentally waste $12.00!

    Fantastic reading

    I love this book! I retain useless information over most other topics. This book is great for conversation filler. It is an easy read, and you can put it down and pick it up again without missing a beat.
