well written ~ When I received the book Shortcut to Prosperity I have to say I was a little nervous I know nothing of the business worlds so a how to book about having a successful career kind of spooked me. I shouldn't have been scared as it turns out the author Mark Hopkins made the book quiet easy to follow and to learn from. It is a straight forward look into the inner workings of business and it even tells you how to find and develop your passion. Over all the book was enjoyable and I came away with knowledge I wasn't expecting to learn. I would suggest this book to any young man or woman starting out in their careers as it is a good guide book on how to proceed with whatever it is he/she choose to do in life.
