    I won't be wasting any more of my money.

    I found 2 grants to apply for so I gave it 2 stars; however, I had found one myself on the internet. Other than that I was very disappointed. I wish I would have read reviews of his books before purchasing. Yes the grants are listed, but you still have to figure out how to apply for them, etc. His infomercials make it sound like his books are 1 stop shopping. It's more like you're starring at a mall directory and can't find the store.
