    I like the bullet points, but would have liked for the author to really expound on his thoughts and vividly paint a picture of each idea and how one can apply it to various facets of one's life. Some sections are good and have found use for them in my life, whereas other points were too vague, lack details, and seemed forced. In addition, as previously stated, the electronic version is chocked full of errors with poorly inserted words and spelling mistakes that make reading a daunting task. Not sure if the paper version has the same problems. Overall, it's an ok book, but would suggest looking for alternatives (sorry, don't know any) before getting this one.

    I liked the concepts of each chapter, although some were a little obvious/common sense. However, and I'm not sure if it's just the electronic copy, it doesn't look like anybody proofread this book. HORRIBLE...misspelled words, missing punctuation and sometimes words that don't make sense in the sentence and make it hard to read. Pretty annoying and unprofessional.
