    Not what I thought!

    This book was not what I thought it would be. The first chapter explains that the reader will know how successes and psychology are integral to one another. However, the next chapters were more of a biology refresher course discussing cells, brain, and body parts. The author does state in the final chapter that we need to read the preceding books to obtain that information.
