    A Very Bad Read

    ...and I paid for this book. This book should be added to the free listing. The current review rating has to be from the publisher only. I went by the rating to purchase of 4 stars to purchase this book. If you need sleep and have a hard time, purchase this book and READ it. How it attained a 4 star rating I will never know!
