    Wonderful. Sanity-saving.

    I've had this book for over 12 years. The humor, support, tips, and anecdotes never fail to help when I need it most. I can put it away for a couple of years, pull it out when I need it and get back on the "High Road" It's great to share with others who need it too, just get them their own copy!
