    This book is NOT Where are the Customers' Yachts? by Fred Schwed

    This book is NOT Where are the Customers' Yachts? by Fred Schwed. It is another book by another author that contains quotes and references to the original but is not Schwed's. I kick myself for not reading its description more carefully. I would not have bought it.

    this is book that is banking on people buying it because they think they are buying "Where are the Customer's Yachts" instead of short book
    full of commonplace and trite advice. I feel ripped off as I bought this straight from my nook when I typed the title of the book I was looking for. 
    If you want poor commentary buy this book otherwise stay away and save your money.
