Editor needed-that should be the subtitle of this book. The text is strewn with errors in sentence construction, piled high with incomplete words, and don't even get me started on the complete lack of basic punctuation knowledge. As a person who enjoys good writing as much as good information, this book represents a complete lack of either. Attempting to look beyond the horrendous writing, I found the same information repeated in different places through this slim volume. I suspect that this booklet was hobbled together from different sourced with little regard to imparting any sort of value. Wish I could get a refund!
